Try lubricating all door and trunk catches with PB Blaster...a spray lubricant found at most auto stores including Walmart:) Thoroughly soak all contact areas with the spray...Also on the doors, to be sure the catch is in the open/close position, pull the inside door releases to line up. Hope this helps.

Why does my 1999 Lincoln Continental alarm system go off by itself and then shut off after 5 or 10 minutes?


this could be the door striker plastic has broken off this is the post sticking out of the frame when you close the door the lock closes around the striker to keep the door closed this striker could also have moved slightly from opening/closing the door thousands of times try this open your windows get out close all doors set the alarm wait a minute then try to lightly move the door/s in and out by grabbing the door at the rear part where the door locks to the frame where the striker is if it has any play in it the connection will break and this will make the alarm think the door has opened and the alarm will sound getting the door to close tighter will stop it from happening this is also true for the trunk if you press down on the trunk or your able to pull up on it a little the same thing will happen its loose and will trigger the alarm if this is not the problem I would then go to the door pin switches that turn the lights on/off when the door is opened/closed especially if the alarm was aftermarket installed but you can be sure the alarm thinks that something is opened and the door/trunk/hood are the only places that they are

HOW TO TURN OFF THE TRUNK OPEN ALARM



The 2012 Camry's trunk lid has a 'trunk open' alarm that shows up on the instrument panel as 'door open' red icon. It also turns on the door open beeping sound so long as the trunk lid is open. This is normal and is usually not a problem..

However, if you should need to carry a large item in the trunk and can't close the lid, be prepared to listen to the incessant door open sound with no means to turn it off!!

The trunk lid alarm 'switch' is operated by the trunk latch when you open or close the lid. By manually operating the latch to it's closed position, you can temporarily silence the alarm.

Using a small screwdriver, you can easily press the actuator and turn the alarm off.

Picture 1: trunk lid latch in the OPEN (Alarm ON) position.

**WARNING**
YOU MUST RETURN THE ACTUATOR TO THE OPEN POSITION (ABOVE)
(ALARM ON) BEFORE YOU CLOSE THE LID. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY DAMAGE THE LATCHING MECHANISM
**WARNING**

DO THIS WITH THE TRUNK OPEN LEVER OR WITH THE REMOTE TRUNK OPEN BUTTON.

Picture 2: trunk lid latch in the CLOSED (Alarm OFF) position.

IF YOU TRY TO CLOSE THE LID WITH THE LATCH IN THIS POSITION YOU MAY DAMAGE OR BREAK THE LATCHING MECHANISM

My Honda Accord latch is broken. I can not open the gas tank door and the trunk won't close. It has to be a problem in the latch because it controls both gas tank door and trunk door


emergency release should be in the trunk as for the closing of the trunk, you need to disconnect the cable at the trunk latch until you can get it fixed

Trunk ajar light is always on


There is a switch that is activated/deactivated by the opening/closing of the trunk deck, it works the same way the door jam switch works when you open/close one of the cabin doors. The switch in the trunk compartment is bad and you will need to replace it.

I have a 1999 Mercedes S320, Do you know how the trunk and doors will automatically compress when you close them. For example when I close my trunk it is suppose to compress tightly once I manually close...


There are 2 pneumatic pumps in your vehicle. one is vacuum and is for your central locking, located under your rear seat bench. The other is pressure and is called your closing assist pump. It is in the trunk behind the rear liner. It also operates you reverse antennas(optional). Your doors and trunk lid are closed by pressure valves that work like little teeter totters. There is an updated relay called a convenience relay located in the right side of the trunk. It stores all the window paramers(for express up and down) as well as your closing assist parameters. In the right side of the trunk there is a fuse box. If you remove the closing assist fuse( I beleive it is # 15) for 15 seconds and then reinstall it, the parameters for your closing assist will be reset. It is possible that your vehicle already has the updated relay(called a relay but actually a microprocessor) and there is a leak in the system. After reinstalling the fuse you can see what doesn't work( one of the doors or trunk,reverse antenna) and isolate the faulty component. If everything works o.k. let it be because they have always been problematic and when they happen to fail just reset it. hopefully I have been helpful.

How to reset 1995 nissan sentra security system


larrylisa2: When you refer to reset, do you mean arm the system?
If so, it can be done providing all the doors, the trunk and hood are closed.
Using your key, you can lock the drivers door or passenger's door and it will arm the system. The trunk, all the doors and hood must be closed.
You can also arm the system without the key in the same fashion insuring all the doors, trunk and hood are closed.
To disarm the unit, you can do this from the driver's door, front passenger's door or the trunk lock.
The other option is the remote. There is one other way to shut down the alarm system. Disconnect the negative battery cable, put the ignition key in the run position and reconnect the cable. This will keep the system from arming until the car is locked.
There is no reset procedure other than the ones I have described.

Trunk will not close


With the trunk open try to accuate the button on the driver's door, check the state of the lock in the trunk first and see or have someone watch it if it moves when you push the door's button.

You may also try manually to open the lock right in the trunk.
