Unable to unlock trunk lever from inside driver side.

When I first got my prelude , I could pull the trunk lever inside my prelude to open my trunk. I stuck my key in the key hole right under the lever which locks it so now I can't use the lever inside my car to open my trunk anymore. I can't unlock the lever, if I use my key to try and unlock the trunk lever then my key just gets stuck and feels like I'll break my key.



I tried super hard lookin on the forums and google for this but I had no luck. Sorry if I may have double posted.

Thanks for the help in advance ^_^

Re: Unable to unlock trunk lever from inside driver side.

Try some wd40 in that sucka. Let it soak over night.
There's liable to be 10+ years of crud, food, beer and who knows what else in there.

Give it a little rap with a hammer, and try wiggling the key up/down while trying to unlock it.

Then, don't lock again until you know for certain it works proper.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Unable to unlock trunk lever from inside driver side.

As your trying to unlock the lever play with it a little like wiggle it up and down mad times until the lock unlocks. It happens to my parts car passenger side door. It's a pita... Only other thing would be maybe your cable got damaged and it's really unlocked just won't pull correctly.

Take that cover off and manually unlock it. If you wd-40 it then clean it out and regrease it properly to keep it lubricated.

Good luck
