One question, which switch you referring to, in cabin or at the back door?

Ask Your Own Lexus Question
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
It is the switch that is hand activated that opens the trunk, not the switch that closes the trunk - at the trunk, not in the cabin. I can send a picture if that would be helpful. Thanks!
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
It is the switch between the two reverse lights at the trunk.

If you are not able to open your trunk in the usual manner, by using the remote key or dash button or the button on the trunk lid, here is a way that will work, even if your trunk is jammed or the car battery is dead.

This does not depend on any of the car’s electronics. This procedure does not care if the car battery is dead or the remote-key battery is dead. It is a pure mechanical operation that uses the mechanical key and the mechanical latch that is in the trunk lid.

If you have ideas of reaching through the trunk extension door in the back seat, to the emergency release lever in the trunk, forget about that. The required reach to do that trick is 54” so just measure your arm and if it is too short (it will be), then move on to what follows.
The remote key (or electronic key) has a mechanical key stored in it. You need to remove the mechanical key from the electronic key. Insert the mechanical key into the slot on the trunk lid Operate the mechanical key and the trunk lid should pop up. To operate the key it must be turned about 35 degrees clockwise. The key may need to be operated forcefully so if you don’t have the hand strength to turn it then you will have to find someone with good hand strength to help you. A tool should not be used to turn the key as that might bend it or break it. If you are unable to operate the key then you will need to apply some downward pressure to the trunk lid while you operate the key. The downward pressure required may be something like someone pushing down on the ridge on top of the trunk over the license plate with their full body weight while someone else turns the key. The downward pressure will very likely allow the key to be operated.

If the trunk doesn’t open when the key is turned then something, like a luggage strap, has probably been forced into the latch mechanism. The way to overcome this is to hold the key fully operated while someone lifts the trunk lid by grasping the lip over the license plate and pulling up.

I am confident that this will get you into the trunk without using a “Tire-tool Key” or making a trip to a Lexus dealership.

Reading the Data List information early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic time.

NOTICE:

In the table below, the values listed under "Normal Condition" are reference values. Do not depend solely on these reference values when deciding whether a part is faulty or not.

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the power switch on (IG).

Hope this helps you as you can see it's quite complicated and the faster way is to have a scanner hooked up and do that active test and look for trouble codes this would certainly save you much time.

Hi! I will take your advice and have the spark plugs changed by a real mechanic (which is not me!). I apologize, but I do need you to provide me the directions on how to remove the hand activated trunk opener that is located between the license plate lights, if these instructions are available. Thanks!!
