Default Trunk issue

Hey everybody,

I have an issue with the trunk. I can't open it with neither key nor button since I washed my Karma. I thought it was a water issue so I waited 2 days. Also I checked the fuse.

Thanks.

Tibor

You may have gotten water into your VCM. If that is the case see if you lost any other functionality, like your horn or if all the windows roll up and down. Unfortunately if it got wet and corroded it may be damaged beyond repair.

Unfortunately I still can't open the trunk.
I took out left rear seat and there is an emergency opener there. But that doesn't work too, it's like as if stucked.
Is there a way to reach the trunk from inside the car? Or do I have to use a grinder to open it?

It is really bad to live without the trunk.

Sometimes the release cable is just very tight and you need to pull it a little harder. There is no other access from inside the car .

Maybe push down a little on the trunk lid while pulling handle to help relieve the pressure on the latch. Probably a 2 person job.

I had a similar problem. The mechanic used a small tool pry bar and gently used pressure to pry the trunk lid out very little. A strap from a piece of luggage got caught in the trunk hook.

We have had to get into a couple (when vcm failed on one, something stuck in latch on another)
Sounds scary and not for the faint of heart but we removed the round Fisker emblem and used a 1.25 inch hole saw to drill through the center of the area behind the emblem. Then you can access the latch and release it with your finger or screwdriver where the cable goes in. Sometimes the release cable comes out of its mounting.
Then you epoxy the piece of fiberglass back into the trunk and cover it with the emblem. I know it sounds crude but we found it to be the only way and the customer was fine with it.

I like this one, @FiskerPhilly, as it sounds reasonable and you donÂ’t need to paint the trunk.
