2000 dodge intrepid trunk will not open with dash button or remot

Our 82 year old ladyfriend cannot get trunk to open with button on dash or by pressing open on her remote. Trunk will open with the key. She is afraid of getting ripped-off if she takes it to an auto repair shop. This car only has 22,000 miles on it and is kept in her garage.

    auto body tech said first check fuses. Then check gear shifter fully in "Park." Then have sensor checked if necessary.

    mine just started doing this about a month ago. I think it is the popper because someone broke into my car and stole the amp and speakers. I also worked at a car wash at the time as well. my point in telling you all this is that when they broke into my car they punched out my trunk lock with a screw driver. well as part of my job I had to test the 3 automatic washes to make sure they were working properly once a day. so that hole got water in it 3 times a day for a year so I think the popper just finally got too wet and gave up.

I have a pick of the fuse box, the one I made red is the fuse your looking for, if that does not do it then it could be the switch or the body control module.

The trunk won't open w/ remote or elct. sw. only

Hello. Chances are that the Unlocking mechanism in the trunk is either out of alignment or broken. Take a close look at it. It is where the trunk lid actually latches and locks. See if it is loose, or bent, or broken.

2000 Intrepid Trunk Lock

All newer vehicles have an emergency manual trunk release inside the trunk.

This should be basically a rip cord directly attached to the trunk locking mechanism. Most modern ones have a yellow handle on the ceiling of the trunk that will release the trunk latch if it is pulled. Yours may be a different color, but if you get in there with a flash light you can probably trace a steel wire from the trunk latch back to some sort of handle that looks like you can pull it. Its definitely worth a shot.

How a fuel cap lock and trunk remote open actually works?

Either a button on your key fob, or one in glove box, or under dash, are pushed & an electric solenoid, (actuator) will open trunk. Gas lid may be same, but usually just a lever down near drivers left leg or beside drivers seat. Is there more that your asking?
