Default Trunk won't open when I lift the trunk lever

Do you guys know how I can fix this? When I pull up the trunk lever, my trunk won't pop open. It just stopped working out of no where and I can't hate having to keep using my key to open it, especially when the car is already on.

Is this something I can fix or will I need to bring it to a Subaru shop? Thanks!

You probably hit the trunk lock out switch by accident. It's located on the latch in the trunk. It's a little lever you just need to slide. Your owners manual will have a picture of it.

this happened to me after I got my car back from having winter tires mounted and balanced the other day. they put my old tires in the trunk and hit that switch, but didn't tell me . When I got home I thought they had broken my trunk latch and almost called them to bitch, luckily enough I figured it out before I called them and looked like a complete ass.

Another vote for looking at the lockout switch on the trunk.
