97 lincoln town car trunk latch won't open

Asked by Oct 19, 2016 at 05:02 PM about the 1997 Lincoln Town Car Executive

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The motor for the trunk lid won't go down. THAT'S not thr problem. The problem is that now the latch will not open so that I can open the trunk to fix the motor. The remote and button inside the driver's door just make a click sound, and the key will not turn in the trunk lock (yes, it is the right key.)

1 Answer

I got it open via pushing the trunk button, turning the key and pounding my fist repeatedly on the trunk for about 20 minutes.
