Sorry I am not familiar with the model.

Most cars of 2013 vintage use an electric release for the boot or tailgate and often there is no other type of release. If this is the case it is worth checking the vehicle handbook for the possibility of an emergency release.

When the electric release doesn't work, depending on the level of sophistication of the system, it could be a fuse, faulty wiring, faulty release button or switch or a faulty lock release motor or solenoid. It is unlikely the lock is faulty.

The last time I encountered a non-opening boot I had to remove the rear seat and wriggle into the boot and remove the boot lid trim panel and locate the wiring in order to connect an independent 12 volt supply direct to the lock solenoid. Once the boot was open it was a simple matter to replace the switch.

The previous time was similar except the problem was a worn lock and the time before the wiring had broken inside the harness where it jumped from the body to the tailgate.

I have Hyundai Sonata 2016 se somehow my cargo trunk got stuck in open boot position i am trying to close the trunk but it stucked and not coming down any help wl be appreciated Thanks

You will probably find you have pressed the key lock when the boot was open and the latch on the boot has closed have a look were it locates on the lock bar and see if it is open then if not try with the key unlock button.
This should work or you may need to push it open with a screw driver.

Car boot won t open

Went through every site recently but couldn't get the answer.
For my 1985 Toyota corona the answer is.
Firstly open the boot.
1. Look at similar boot in open position.
2. Slide steak knife in at 45 degrees upwards from rear to front under the boot. Ensure the end of the blade is aiming at the lock.
3. Push steak knife handle to left.
Next fix the problem.
A. Search for defective component and replace it.
B. After replacing the basic lock a component still needed to be bent
to activate lock whilst key was turning.
Finally test boot without locking it.
Use screwdriver to click mechanism as if locking, before using key to unlock.
