Trunk Lockout

Gardena Trunk Lockout Service (323)244-2503

Are you unable to open your trunk? It’s a frustrating situation, and it can get out of hand quickly if you’re not prepared. But you have options. So if you’re facing a trunk lockout right now, here’s what you can do if you don’t want to call a specialist, such as a locksmith, right away.

Here’s What Not To Do

When you’re locked out of your car, it is best not to try to unlock or pick at your lock. The problem with doing any of these is that you may injure yourself or damage the lock or your car. Especially if you don’t have the appropriate tools. If you do decide to do it yourself, there’s a big chance that you will jam/break the lock, making it harder to unlock your trunk. You may also set off the alarm and the electric wires attached to the trunk will shut down.


Locking your keys in the trunk is nothing compared to locking them inside your car. Be prepared for a lot of time and trouble to be spent fixing a silly mistake. Therefore, depending on the year, make, model, and security feature, your car has 3 options- you can try to open the car to get access from the inside, do it yourself, or a locksmith technician can open your trunk manually.

These Are Your Options:

Open the car and get access from the inside to the trunk release

Go straight to the problem and pick at the trunk lock itself.

Call a locksmith and avoid the hassle

The first two choices may be difficult, but the technician will assess the situation the easiest way possible. You will be presented with options and prices so you can decide.

Trunk locks and car door locks are similar, but it doesn’t mean that they are the same. Most car owners pay more mind to the car door locks and ignition alarms but not so much to the trunk locks which also require maintenance.

How it Works

If you own a newer version car, it is more possible that your car is monitored by a key fob. Unfortunately, if your key fob is not properly programmed, there is a high possibility that you will not be able to open your trunk if you are attempting to do so without a manual way to operate it. As a matter of fact, the only way a key fob won’t function properly is if the battery is dead.

Your vehicle will not be responsive to its commands since the key fob and your car are connected. They are connected in such a way that allows them to communicate with each other. Unless your fob has a key that works on the trunk as well or if you have a spare trunk key. Now would be a great time to use it if it’s in your possession.

A trunk is designed to be a safe space impossible for thieves to get into including the owner. Consequently, most car owners leave these difficult tasks to a locksmith. However, not all locksmiths are qualified to do this particular job.
