Customer Question
only opens with a key...
i have a 2008 nissan versa. i can not open the trunk. it only opens with a key. There is no trunk opening button on the fob. There is no inside the car button to release. There does not appear to be any release in the glove box. Is there something broken or a part (sensor?) or something that needs to be replace? what information can you provide to me?

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

If you open the trunk with your key, ( thinking off the top of my head ) I believe the valet switch is inside by the latch. So when you open the truck look inside for this lever. Then flip it up or down ( I think it's up ) and then try the inside trunk release. See link for image.

Let me know how you make out.

This is a ridiculous answer! I can not open the trunk!! That is the problem!!! I should not be charged for this at all. :-(
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
If I could open the trunk using the key, there would not be a problem. In my question, I was trying to identify that the only way I am able to (when it works) open the trunk is with a key. There is no latch inside the vehicle to release. I have checked an there is also no release in the glove box (some people have identified this is a possible solution).
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

You said in your question that it only opens with the key. So I was under the impression that you can open it.

I was working off the top of my head for you. Give me a min to find where the valet switch is located for your car.

You can open the truck with the key or you can't?

I can not open the trunk with my key or any other way at this time.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
There is actually no other way that I know of to open the trunk as there is nothing in the car (such as a release) or on the remote to open the trunk.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

ok.. Sorry for the confusion on that. In your question you stated you can only open it with the key.

Ok.. If you look at the back seats, towards the top of the seat back next to the head reset. You should have a pull tab that will fold the seat down to give you access to the trunk. Please check that for me.

I will check again (as i already tried to find something to bring the seats forward) and could not find anything.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

ok.. I will be here waiting. Take your time.

There does not seem to be a release of any sort. I checked the entire length along the top of the back seat.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Does your rear seat have a center arm rest or is it the solid seat back?

If you have the arm rest type, when you put the arm rest down, you can access the inside of the trunk through there.

An arm rest in the back seat? No, there isn't one
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't think I will get the help I need from this site. I should plan to go to the dealer for help
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

If you look at the first link I provided it shows how to lower the seat back to enter the trunk

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I looked at the link. It doesn't help me get into the trunk from the back seat. It shows what to do if you can get into the trunk from the inside of the car--and I am not able to get into the trunk from the back.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

The back seat is designed to fold down. You can't find the plastic pull tab to release the latch on the top of the seat for it to fold down?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. There is no tab
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sorry. I don't see what you are telling me. Going to see a friend that might be able to help me.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Then the back seat would need to be taken apart to gain access. You should have have sort of release. It could be broken.
