Question about 2008 Hyundai Elantra
2008 elantra locked keys in trunk the windows are open the doors were lock when I unlock the door the alarm went off the trunk switch will not open trunk to get keys out trunk how do I open trunk
The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.

Did you lock BOTH key fobs in the trunk? If so, you'll need to tow/take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you a key fob needs to be programmed to open the trunk... then, reprogram your original fobs - sorry.. only solution since the rear seat release is in the trunk (which you can't open them from inside the vehicle.).
