Congratulations on the new car! Thankfully, learning how to open the trunk of your
Toyota 4Runner
is very simple.
There are three ways to open the trunk:
  • Inside of the vehicle: On the driver’s side, there should be a lever with a trunk icon on it. Normally, this is near the seat. When you pull up on the lever, the trunk will pop open.
  • With
    the key fob
    : If you unlock your car using the key fob, it should also unlock the trunk. Most key fobs let you hit the unlock button twice to unlock the trunk and passenger doors. Depending on your model, there may be a button specifically for unlocking and opening the trunk.
  • Manually: You can unlock the car by using the unlock button on the driver’s side door. Your model may also have a keyhole on the trunk to open it.
That’s it! You’ve learned how to successfully open the trunk.
Since it’s important your new vehicle is covered under a
car insurance
policy, be sure you have the proper protection.
