Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix

Reverse lights don't work, inside trunk release doesn't work

The reverse lights do not turn on when the car is put in reverse. And the Trunk Release in the glove box will not work. From my research i have found that the two are on the same circuit, but all the fuses are ok, any ideas?

On my 2002 mercy grand marqius when u put in reverse the trunk pop open


Your reverse light wires are probably
rubbed thru and touching the wire
that activates the trunk release. remove
the reverse light bulbs and see if it does it again, or remove the fuse for the trunk release. Also have someone look at the
reverse lights while your pushing
the trunk button on the drivers door.
If yhey come on then you know the circuit
is shorting to power

How to open 98 cadillac trunk without keys


We had locked our only set of keys in our trunk and found it is literally impossible to get through the back seat to the trunk and the trunk release latch would not work and neither would the glove box release. We pulled the negative cable off the battery and left off for about 2 minutes and when we put it back on it reset all functions and trunk latch worked again. Hope this helps someone else.

My backup lights do not come when i put it in reverse


I had the wires broken inside the loom that comes up from the trunk to the trunk lid. The wires bend by the right hand trunk hinge and break inside the insulation after years of opening and closing. I'm suprised that is the only ting in the trunk lid that doesn't work because the license plate lights, trunk release and the other running light wires also come through that loom and usually break.

99 chevy lumina reverse lights not working. changed bulbs..nothing. the trunk release which is tied into the same harness also doesn't work. don't know if this is related. is there a switch t


This is a failure of the "remote function actuation module". It is located under the rear deck next to the right rear speaker. The rear seat must be removed to access it along with removing the rear deck. It controls the trunk release, door locks, dome light, and reverse light. My remote trunk release stopped working along with the relase button on the dash along with the reverse lights failing at the same time. The module is over $150 so I would try to find a way to rewire the lights to work without the module.

My 2003 Saturn Ion remote trunk release won't


Check to make sure the button on the trunk latch is turned from manual unlock...they made that feature so only the key will work to open the trunk that way if someone breaks in the front of your car they can't hit the trunk release and get into the trunk...may be the same thing for your remote. Hope that helps.

Does the key you have open the driver door? Do you have a keyless entry key fob, does it work? you also might try removing the glove box and disconnecting the wires from the trunk button and touching them together with a paper clip or other small wire but before you do that look in your owners manual a determine which fuse is for the trunk release and check the fuse then the last would be to have GM dealer check to see if the key you have is the proper key fror your car and if it may be worn out

2000 bmw x5 nav screen blank. radio works but no


I know this is an old thread, but my 2006 325i Nav screen went bank also, but the radio still played. I noticed the glove box light and trunk light did not turn on also. I was told from mechanics is was probably a CID module for $2200, even though I mentioned the glove box and trunk light light were out and specifically inquired about a fuse. The mechanics never checked the fuses, because I checked my fuses in the glove box and found the fuse 61 marked with a BMW symbol that looks like light bulb was blown. The Nav screen started back up once the fuse was changed.
