How do I open the trunk?

You can open the trunk in several different ways, such as using your wireless remote control, the key or the trunk opener.

Inside the Vehicle

  1. Locate the lever on the floor by the door sill, which will have an image of a car with the trunk open.

  2. Pull up on the lever, which releases the lid of the trunk.

Outside the Vehicle

  1. Insert the master key inside the key slot.

  2. Turn the key clockwise until you hear the trunk unlock.

Tip

Use the wireless remote if you have one and press on the button that shows an image of a car with its trunk open. This will unlock the trunk.
