Trunk wonít open

Car threw a nice little trick at me a few days ago. The truck clicks when I use the key fob or when I push the button on the door...but it will not unlock/unlatch.

I messed with it pushing down pretty hard...nothing. I only found out because I went to take the top down and got the message that the divider is not attached...so, I popped the trunk to fix it...except it didnít work.

I assume the only option is to remove the back seat and go in to use the emergency latch in the trunk. Of course that will really suck with the top up.

Any other options?

Well, thatís a bummer. If you take the seat out, what youíll run into is all of the electronic components for the top. Itís held in place with rigid styrofoam.

I think you can get a better idea of what youíre in for by searching the stereo upgrade section for a convertible. I could have sworn I saw a White ZL1 torn apart.

I'd tell the wife to put on a pair of short-shorts and come help me fix the Camaro in the garage...

There is a keyhole by the back seats to manually unlatch the trunk. They even give you a plastic 'wrench' to give you more leverage on the key. Check the manual.

Happened to me twice a few months ago. I pushed down on the trunk and then used the door panel trunk button to pop it again. That resolved it. Sounds like you've already pushed down on it. Try again and follow with the door panel trunk release button instead of the touchpad or keyfob.

I used the manual unlatch behind the driver side back seat. It's right at the top so you can just pull the seat and insert the key.

Closed the trunk and stuck again. Good news is, I can get stuff out and get my top working, but will need to go to dealership for the fix.

locked myself out the first year I put the car up for the winter and had to use the manual entry but have not had this happen to me YET! Please let us know what the dealer says.

I will take the car to the dealership soon so that I can have them check it. I was kind of hoping after I opened it the problem would go away...no luck.
