Where is the TRUNK button?

15 posts in this topic

OMG, can this be true??? There is no TRUNK BUTTON? I can't open my trunk without using my remote key

to unlock the trunk. Usually every car has a trunk button somewhere that you can press so it opens/unlocks the trunk.

I've had to reach into my pocket a few times now and pull out the key remote to unlock the trunk which is very annoying since it's

in my pocket as I'm sitting in the car.

Tell me there is an actual TRUNK Button somewhere on the car!

Hello cornflakes,

I took a look into the 2013 Spark Owner's Manual, and to unlock or lock the lift gate you have to press the lock or unlock button on the inside of the door. To open the liftgate, after pressing the unlock button in the vehicle, pull the handle and lift up. I hope this information helps!

USA Sparks do not have any internal latch release, but they all have an unlock switch with a manual hatch latch handle.

Hmm....mine does not have an electronic UNLOCK button in the car. If I want to unlock the door, I have to manually lift up the knob of my door to unlock the door and get out. The only other way is to reach for my keyless smart remote and press unlock there to unlock all the doors including the trunk.

Wow. I'm shocked that in today's day, a car doesn't have a button to unlock and open the trunk! Every car I've ever driven had one.

My 1993 BMW does not have a power trunk either, and that was a $40K car new.....

On our 2013 LS the trunk lock is to the left of the steering wheel next to the cubby hole

Think yourselves lucky, the UK Spark I had didn't even have a trunk handle, the trunk had to be opened with the key everytime.

That would not be desirable, we still have a handle over here.

I have been driving myself crazy looking for the trunk release inside the vehicle. Not having it is truly inconvenient.

I am pretty sure there is no trunk open lever or button inside my 2017 LS. Not a big deal. I just ask my wife to get get out and open the trunk with the spare key. She can use the exercise :)

 

Look at the positive side, if a thief breaks window and gets inside the car, he can't open the trunk either without a key, so I store all my spare cash in the trunk :)

There is no turnk unlock button inside Chevy Malibu's BUT there is a little black button on the outside of the trunk. Look on the rear lights on the trunk. Hope this helps. 

P.S only opens when the car is unlocked. Will not open when car is locked.

Bobby, I guess, you are not keeping your spare million $$$ in trunk, if Nicolas Cage is there both your car n cash will be "Gone in 60sec". Just joking.:lol:

Mine is 1gen Indian spark, all I have is a small latch release next to driver door, else key is required. Poor thing is they have given a door switch in bonnet but not in hatch so if someone manage to open hatch my remote lock system doesn't sound. Thinking of drilling a hole and put a door switch in hatch.

There is no formal handle on my 2017 Spark LS, but there is a notch under the trunk lid which works same as an external  handle. After I unlock the trunk with a key, I hear a clicking sound, and then stick my hand in that notch to open the trunk lid.

No worries, my money is now safely buried in the backyard under the banyan tree :) The hatch was just too small for storing all those worthless inflated one $ bills!
