Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

FUSE My daughter was rear ended & now the trunk is pushed in causing the light in the trunk to stay on & raining the battery. I want to pull the fuse out so the light in the trunk will be disconnected, but am not sure which fuse it is. Can you tell me either the location on the fuse box for the trunk light? or atleast the amps (?) of the fuse so I can narrow it down?

It will most likely be the courtesy light fuse, or it may be marked interior lights, it will most likely be 15 amp.

I want to get in the trunk from the backseat of my 2006 Saturn ion, how do I go about that?

You can fold either side of the rear seatback down for more cargo space.
To lower the rear seatback, follow these steps:

Open the trunk and pull one or both of the small handles located in the center of the trunk.
Once the handle is pulled, the seatback can be pushed open through the trunk, or pulled open from the inside of the vehicle.

Sorry ,but you need the trunk open ! What's wrong with your's ? loose your key . trunk release inside the vehicle doesn't work .
Luggage Compartment
Your best bet , have a qualified repair shop check it out . May have DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored .
DTC B3267: Trunk Release Output Circuit Low
DTC B3268: Trunk Release Output Circuit High

The rear compartment release circuit consists of the following:
• The intergrated body control module (IBCM) fuse
• The rear compartment lid release relay
• The rear compartment lid lock release actuator
• The rear compartment lid release switch
• The cargo lamp/trunk ajar switch
The rear compartment release circuit operates as follows. Battery positive voltage is applied at all times to the rear compartment lid release relay. The rear compartment lid release relay is energized by either depressing the rear compartment lid release switch, or when the IBCM receives a rear compartment release signal from a key fob. The IBCM then provides a path to ground on the rear compartment lid release relay control circuit, energizing the rear compartment lid release relay. When the rear compartment lid release relay is energized, battery positive voltage is supplied to the rear compartment lid lock release actuator causing the actuator to energize releasing the rear compartment lid. The rear compartment may be released with the dash mounted rear compartment release switch. The ignition must be in the OFF or ACCESSORY positions for the rear compartment to be released with a keyless entry transmitter fob (RFA). The rear compartment may also be released by an OnStar commanded using RFA functionality.

2008 Cadillac CTS push button to open trunk sometimes works

Do you know anything about automotive electronic's ? The trunk release is controlled by electronic control modules . Having the vehicle check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's should be the first step in the diagnostic procedure . Then reading how it work's !
Factory service repair info.
Rear Compartment Lid Release System Components
• Body control module (BCM)
• Remote control door lock receiver
• Interior rear compartment lid release switch
• Exterior rear compartment lid release switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release Operation
The interior rear compartment lid release switch receives a signal from the driver door switch assembly (DDSA). When the interior rear compartment lid release switch is activated, the signal circuit is pulled to ground. The DDSA interprets this and sends a GMLAN serial data message to the body control module (BCM) requesting the rear compartment lid be released. The BCM responds by applying battery voltage to the trunk release relay control circuit which energizes the TRUNK RELES relay. The trunk release relay is supplied with battery voltage at all times. With the relay coil energized, the relay switch contacts close allowing battery voltage to flow to the rear compartment lid release actuator causing the rear compartment lid to release. The rear compartment lid release actuator is permanently grounded at G402.

The trunk release relay is located in the rear fuse box located under the back seat.

Hi, my daughter has a '96 Mercury Sable. It has a new battery (within last six months) but has occasionally been dead. I've checked the terminals, charged the battery, pulled lights in trunk... I think...

remove the ecm fuse, disconnect the battery neg cale and bridge it with a test light, if the light stays on there is a closed ciircuit in the car, pull fuses one at a time to find the circuit, then you know where to search

2002 PT Cruiser will not hold charge.

It sounds like you have a bad diode trio in the altanator. to test remove the belt off the altanator then turn the key on and see if the fan on the altanator spins if it does thats your problem. If not then get a 12 volt test light and remove the negitive battery post and put one end of the lead on the battery and the other on the cable. with everything off does it light up? Yes? then make sure the glove box light is not on, or remove it for a few days and see if the problem goes away if it does you have solved your problem. you can test it with the glove box light out with the test light. If the light stays on you can pull one fuse at a time to see if you pull a fuse it goes out. if it goes out with pulling a fuse then you have found the problem with the circut giving you the problem, after you loctae the fuse take it to a shop and tel them the fuse that stops the light from being on. If you need more help post here.

2004 Accent Rear lights stay on after turning motor off and eventually drain the battery. This has occurred on my son's car and also my son-in-law's car

Is it just the Rear Window Light that stays on, or is the Rear Window Light and the brake lights located at the back/bumper of the car? If it is BOTH the Rear Window Light AND the brake lights at the rear of the car, then you likely have a faulty brake switch located at the brake pedal inside the car cabin. When the brake pedal is in the normal position, ie - you are not depressing the brake pedal, the arm of the brake pedal leading to the pedal with your foot pushes upon... this arm is applying constant pressure to the switch - with keeps your brake lights OFF. When you apply pressure to the brake pedal, it moves the brake arm away from the switch, which activates the circuit, and your brake lights turn on. If this switch is broken, your brake circuit thinks the brake pedal and arm are being pushed away from the switch, and your brake lights turn on. As you are aware, having the light on constantly can wear down your battery AND the heat from this constant light bulb of the brake light in the rear window can deform the shape of the red reflector in this rear window light housing. If, however, it is only the rear window light that stays on - then it is probably a loose or bad connection where this light plugs into the rest of the circuit in the trunk near the back seat. If this is the case, follow the wires from the rear window light assembly to the point where they plug into the rest of the circuit (inside the trunk) and unplug this wire set, clean the terminal ends, and plug them back together. ***WAIT, WAIT!!*** because you of the risk of touching the terminal ends together and blowing the circuit, if you also plan to clean the hot side, please remove the NEGATIVE battery terminal while cleaning (DO NOT USE WATER, just a wire brush or steel wool). After you are done cleaning and have the terminals reconnected, reconnect the negative battery terminal (you will also have to reset your radio stations and radio clock).

Car won't start after rear-end collision

Sounds like electrical drain-
Trunk light on, dome light staying on.
Something along that line.
You could try pulling the associated fuses until you get the car in for repairs.

Clk top will not go back up seems dead..all fuses checked

It is normal for the roll bar to rise when top is down. It seems like the rear valance cover is not secured and the soft op does not understand what position it is in. There is a way to manually close top. it is stated in your owners manual. also I would try to close top with button(assuming your vehicle will start and the battery has good voltage) start car and try to operate top down and try pushing on rear cover also make sure the retractable cover in trunk is extended to compress operation switch

Lexus ES300 trunk leaks when it rains

This may sound odd but if you can put a small person in the trunk with a flashlight while you pour water in the areas suspected, they can trace the leaking area, believe it or not I used to use this method while I was a Ford mechanic. Otherwise, maybe you can apply clear or black silicone to the area or remove the screw or bolt and coat it with silicone and replace it.

Battery goes dead after car sits for 3-4 days

Parasitic drain? If so, did they run a test light on the negative terminal? Unhook the negative battery cable, run a test light between the negative battery post and the negative (removed) cable end. Does the light come on? If so, remove each fuse, one at a time, when you hit the circuit that is draining, the light will go off.

I have a 95 Buick Roadmaster and it was doing the same thing. It was a broken light in the trunk, the bulb was out, but the electricity was still there. The wire became damaged when my daughter overloaded the trunk. Just a couple of ideas...
