You cannot enter the trunk from inside. the cable of the pull switch may be cut off or detached from the trunk lock. if you have a duplicate key try inserting it to open the trunk. if every thing fails let the locksmith do the job.

Trunk wont open on a 2000 mitsubishi diamante with key, remote nor latch in driver side. how can i get to trunck through backseat?


I don't know if yours has it or not, but on later models you can pull down the center arm rest/cup holder in the back seat. Behind that is a small panel or door that you can open that leads to the trunk area. If you reach inside the opening and to the left, there should be a pull handle to release the trunk lid.

HHow to open trunk


To open your trunk there is a lever to the left of the driver seat, on the floor. If you lift this it will pop the trunk. If you have the electronic key fob that came with the car , there is a trunk button on it. If you press the trunk button twice the trunk lid will pop open automatically. You can get inexpensive key fobs on line and program them yourself if you do not have an electronic key fob.

How to replace a 2001 mitsubishi galant brake light


Bare with me because I am trying to remember this from memory. If you open your trunk and look on the inside next to the light being replaced, you should see three black protectors which probably appear to hold up the trunk carpeting interior. Remove these protectors and pull back the carpeting (held on by velcro attachments). You should now see three bolts with retaining nuts. Remove the nuts with a deep 10mm socket and pull the light from the body from the outside of the car. After the light is out, you will see three light sockets. The brake light should be the most inner light. Twist the socket towards the left and the light should easily come out. Remove the bulb and replace it with the exact same bulb. The bulb has two filaments, one for the park lights and the other for the brake lights. After you've replaced the bulb, installation is the reverse of removal.

Key and latch pull donot work on my truck lock how can i open trunk


You can try to get inside the trunk by removing the passenger seats.From inside there should be the lock mechanism.Usually there is a way to open the trunk from inside(for safety reasons so noone will lock himself in to the trunk).
