2013 DODGE DART SE trunk won't open

Asked by Aug 19, 2016 at 12:27 PM about the 2013 Dodge Dart SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't have a keyhole to open the trunk. My key fob has a trunk button and when I push it 2 times the lights will blink, and you can hear the trunk try to open, but it won't. I also have pushed the trunk release from under the dashboard and it won't open. The only way to open it is to fold down the back seat and climb back into the trunk and pull the release. That is too frustrating to do over and over. What could possibly be wrong & how can I fix this?

Still have it under warranty? If it is, take it back to the dealer and let them fix it. If not, you may have a bad lock actuator, or just a dirty lock mechanism that's sticking. Get the trunk open then test the actuator. With the trunk open pop the key fob and see/hear if the actuator is moving. From your description it sounds like it is working but it might be sticking, try spraying graphite lubricant in it to free it. Or it might be slightly out of alignment to move the locking mechanism enough to open the trunk, you'll have to play with it to see if that is the case.

Do your door locks work? I had on mine where the trunk and door locks didnt work and found a blown fuse in the under dash fuse panel
