Put your key in the lock and turn cw 1/4 turn, then push. It should open (over-ride). Then pull up your rear seat to view the wiring going to the top case at the rear left. Mine had a wire than fell off. BTW, The lock over-ride trick works with all the locks.bquinn said:Can anyone give me suggestions on opening a locked or-wont open top trunk on 2008 LT.
Need it open as plan on ride in AM or Tuesday to ride to Washington DC.

Sometimes my stringray compartment will not unlock. I learned that if I press the keyhole assembly while clicking the FOB to unlock, the key assembly will depress and un lock.
I can confirm, from my personal experience several years ago, that the shorter screw usually solves the stingray unlocking problem.GlennM86 said:Your symptom is usually caused by having too long of a screw holding your stingray on. This would be the screw on the left side of the stingray locking mechanism.
The longer screw is supposed to put pressure on the solenoid that activates the locking pin. The extra pressure prevents the solenoid from operating properly.
The suggested fix is to replace the erroneous longer screw with a shorter one.
I hope this works for you. I have only read about it.
