Asked by May 15, 2013 at 02:59 PM about the 2000 Toyota ECHO 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: General

I went to open my trunk and the lock is horizontal as if it is already unlocked with the key in it. The trunk latch is also not working. What happened? My 200 Echo is not worth enough to spend much money on it.

Latch is bad or rod that connects to the key cylinder.

The lock is in valet mode which disables the interior trunk release lever next to the driver's seat. Insert your key and turn the lock back to vertical to enable the trunk release lever and past vertical to open the trunk. Mine is a little difficult to get out of valet mode with a copied key, no issues with the original. The fold-down rear seats, if equipped also have a valet switch on the back of the seat that disables the interior pull knob.
