How do you open back trunk no key trunk release cable broken?
October 07, 2014 1:13AM
To open a trunk when there is no key and the cable release is broken, it is necessary to remove the back part of the rear seat. In some vehicles there is a small part of the bench seat back that will pull down to access the trunk.

How do you open the hood of a 2002 Saturn Vue if the hood cable is broken?
Our 2004 Saturn Vue hood release can be opened (if the cable is not broken) by disconnecting the cable from the back of the release lever, grabbing the ball on the end of the cable with some large pliers ("channel locks") and pulling hard. A metal "wire keeper" bracket clamped to the cable end under the hood to serve as a spacer and the release lever works.

Trunk release and trunk brake light won't work on 2006 dodge charger?
This is a common problem on this Charger model. Most people are finding broken wires inside the rubber boot that routes wires from the trunk lid to the trunk. Pull the rubber grommet (passenger side of trunk) back and inspect the wires. You will find one or more broken. If you have any electrical skills, it is an easy fix. Good luck!

How do you open hood on 98 vw beetle if release mechanism is broken not plastic tab?
On a 2000 Cavalier the trunk release lever does not open the trunk and after tracing it back saw that the cable is not connected on inside of trunk and need help figuring out how to connect it?
On the inside of the trunk lid there is a little plastic black box that attaches to the release mechanism on the bottom of the trunk lid (where the lid meets the latch). On one side of this black box, there is a cable running out that runs up to the key. On the other side, you can either attach an auto trunk pop solenoid, or a release cable that runs inside your car to a handle. There is a rectangular cover on the black box that you will need to pry up with a screwdriver. Pry this lid open, and you will see a little orange thing in there. Take your cable and place it inside of this orange "hook". The cable has a ball on the end of it, and the ball on the cable needs to sit inside of the orange "hook". Then, make sure the cable is properly seated inside of the little black box, and push the cover closed. Make sure the cover snaps all the way around, or the cable might fall out again.

Why will my clutch pedel not come back from the floor?
Vw passat electric trunk won't open even with the key?
If the actuator cable breaks then the key and the interior release both don't work. It needs to be replaced. If your trunk has a manual release inside then you can pull the back seats down and reach in to release it. Then undo one screw in the interior handle and pop out the plastic covering on the trunk. Then you will be able to see the cables. Good luck. Check out youtube.

Asked in Brakes and Tires
Can you release the parking brake if the cable brakes ON A 2004 AVALANCHE 1500 CHEVY?
parking brake is held on by a ratchet inside the car, ,so if the cable is broken your brakes will not be locked on if they are, you have more than a broken cable problem. -------------- I beg to differ. It may be that it's only the release cable that is broken. This was the case in my older (79) Chevy Malibu. It wasn't the actual brake cable that broke. So my parking brake was stuck on. Ok then i did find a little lever part that i could pull back on beneath the dash, it was sort of connected to the parking brake pedal base. Look underneath the dash by the ebrake pedal, see if you can trace the route from the release handle to where its little pull cable might attach. That is the point where you would want to pull back to release the pedal. it worked for me, but of course it's a different type of Chevy. Just be careful as those moving parts will then release and you want to keep your fingers safe. --purry1

Asked in Car Fuses and Wiring
Where is trunk release fuse Infiniti g35?
The problem probably isn't your fuse. The wiring that goes into the trunk lid is most likely cut because of a bad design. There are 8 wires going into the trunk (4 positives + 4 black colored grounds). The trunk release, two back up lights and a believe the 4th set of wiring is for the spoiler brake light if equipped, but not sure. Access the trunk by using the emergency release lever mid way down the trunk lid. You can get to it via the back seat opening. Once the trunk is open. Look on the right side you will see a black wire loom going into the trunk lid. Cut it open with a razor blade. You will see broken wires in there. I had 4 broken wires (3 ground and one positive) Fix the wiring by adding on a little extra and soldiering like colored pieces together. The wiring in the trunk is basically just to short so I would consider fixing all 8 wires and stuffing the extra length into the body of the car and trunk lid.
