Angry How do I get My Trunk To Open - Is this another common problem?

Ever since I bought this car, I have had all kinds of trouble, If its not one thing its A F*** Nother!. Started Out with the Engine leaking oil (Hopefully its Just the Valve cover), Then, the Roof was a mess, started disintegrating, had to re-do the splintering roof. Then My Power steering went, had to install another, Then I had these Leaks, which I'm still battling with, I just read about the Driver Rear door Drain Holes Leaking into the Cabin, which is what I set out to do today, But like I said, If its not one thing its another. I shut My trunk NORMALLY LIKE I ALWAYS DO the Other day, and can You believe that sucker won't open for shyt? I have tried to use the Key, Noway, tried to Use the Trunk Release button on Remote AND THE One inside the car, all to no avail, Then I said there must be a release lever in the Trunk, so I tried to reach it from the back seat, but due to stuff & plastic trims and boxes I have in the truck, I cannot for the life of Me find it (But I'm not sure If this car does have a Trunk release lever). So I really don't know what exactly to do, cos I really love the car, and would like to keep it for as long as possible, But if its gonna keep coming up with all these annoying problems all the time, I'll be forced to get rid of it and say Good Bye For Good.
So somebody PLEASE Tell Me What To do.

First off, I think it is your trunk you are trying to open, not your truck. Second, If you let us know which vehicle you are talking about we can tell you where the trunk release is. You list 3 vehicles in your sig, but you don't indicate which you have the problem with.


If you are referring to the 2005 Impala, the emergency trunk release handle is located directly on the latch.

Sorry, that'* how pissed and frustrated I was with this car, If You read the body You can clearly see that I meant Trunk, No Truck. I Wish an Admin Can PLEASE Correct that for Me.
Sorry again I forgot to Say which car, But, I thought I posted this question under Pontiac Bonneville section? or did it get moved? I didn't know I still had to say which car. But anyway, Its My 2000 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE, My Other cars don't give Me this Much Headache.

The Bonneville may or may not have an emergency release handle. If it has one it is located at the latch, same as on the Impala. I corrected the thread title.

The Trunk Release is In The Glove compartment, Usually I Just press it and It Pops The Trunk, But It won't do anything now, Physical Key Won't Work Either, So Does The Remote.
This is Crazy, Maybe I Might have to get a Locksmith.

I realize the trunk release is in the glove compartment. The emergency trunk release (if you have one) is a plastic handle located by the latch in the trunk.
