What is the Trunk Latch all about?

The trunk latch is the mechanism that holds a trunk closed. When the trunk latch is engaged, the trunk can only be opened by a handheld remote or a key.

In most newer cars, a trunk latch works much the same as a door latch. Generally, two components make up the trunk latch: the U shaped anchor, which sits in the frame of the vehicle, and the latching mechanism in the lid to the trunk. Either or both pieces could fail, causing the trunk latch to malfunction. The trunk latch can be triggered with the same handheld remote that opens the car door.

Older cars generally use a cylinder system that can be opened with a key. This system operates using a cylinder and striker, and the key that is used generally matches the door locks. The latch that holds the trunk locked is located in the striker.

Keep in mind:

  • While this may not seem like a serious issue, if the trunk latch opens suddenly in traffic, debris could be blown out of your trunk and into the path of other vehicles.

How it's done:

  • The trunk latch is verified to be needing replaced
  • The defective trunk latch is removed
  • The new trunk latch is installed
  • The inside trim panel is reinstalled to complete repair
  • The trunk is checked for proper operation

Our recommendation:

If you suspect that the trunk latch has failed, or is about to fail, call our expert mechanics to diagnose the trunk latch. There are different components that make up the trunk latch, so it’s important to know which part is failing before repairs are begun.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Trunk Latch?

  • Trunk won’t stay closed
  • Trunk has to be slammed hard to get the latch to engage
  • Latch comes open if the car is jostled, such as hitting a bump or stopping suddenly

How important is this service?

While it may not be a huge deal to the driver, it will be a huge deal to anyone who ends up with a trunk load of groceries in their path if items are blown out of an open trunk. Any items secured in the trunk may not be safe.

Jeep Compass L4-2.0L - Trunk Latch - Dolton, Illinois
Krystal communicated effectively. Initially, she didn’t know what she needed to do to fix my broken trunk latch;however, she climbed in the trunk and figured out how to fix the problem. The dealership told me it would take over an hour. Krystal fixed the trunk in less than an hour.

Hi! I have a notification on my car whenever I try to drive it and it says transmission fail safe and puts my car in neutral

WE took our car into Lythia Dodge here in Bryan Texas last week to have the oil changed and also found that we had a leak on the floor of the garage. I told the Lythia people about it and they said they would look into it. They called and said that they could not find a leak. So we took a picture of the leak on the floor of the garage. I sent it to the agent and he said they would check again. After further inspection they found oil cooler leak in valley-replaced oil cooler. This repair cost me $830.00. This was done on Jan 21th. This first time we filled up the car on the 2nd. We only have 40 miles on the car since we had it fixed. We did make some simple trips at lease 2, since having the work done. Maybe a total of 6 miles Today we got in the car to go to church and it started dumping tons of gas on the floor of the garage. The whole house smells like gasoline. The car will now not stay running.
