help getting into the trunk of my box caprice

I have an 89 chevy caprice ..it doesn't have an electric switch to pop the trunk open. I don't have the keys for it either...I was trying to see the best way of. Opening the trunk without damaging it.

Any help would be nessasary...I want to rekey the car too.

if it has a license plate light above the plate you might try removing the lens and light.
then use a long screwdriver thru the opening and hit the trunk release from inside.

after 10 years they dump alot of info for chevys out of the computers when you go to the dealership they can make a key but it might run you like $20 and up. they charged me like $70 for a key but it had the chip in it also

A locksmith can make you a key on the spot. If you don't want to damage anything, that's you best bet.

Remove back seat long arms and long flat screwdriver you can pop trunk. Most likely the key has been changed beforer i wouldnt count on dealer way. The liscene light is the easiest though it may be riveted.


Always a work in progress
