Hyundai Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input so I can help you better. I read your notes and have a question before we start. Does the fob open all the other doors?
That is good then the problem is in the trunk latch, you may have something jammed in the trunk latch itself or the latch itself may be damaged. This may be difficult. First thing you can try is have someone bounce down off and on the trunk lid while you pull the cable release. Question-- the trunk lock isn't in valet mode is it?
You may have to go through the back seat to get to the inner trunk panel to remove it so you can work at the latch to release it.
If you cannot do that the last alternative is to drill the lock out so you can gain access to the latch release rod.
The only way I can open the trunk is to apply the car key into the trunk key hole.
Oh so you can manually open it with the key?
