    i didn't check fuses sence the switch in the truck works.

  • croberts580 Feb 10, 2009

    the switch on the driver and passanger door will not lock or unlock doors, the keyfob will not lock or unlock doors, the switch in the back will operate the locks, the keypad on the driver outside will unlock the doors.

    Hi, What switch? The door lock switch? What about the battery in the keyfob? Long distance troubleshooting is tough, any help that you can give me to help you would be good> Thanks

Hi, Yikes! Sounds like a control module problem as the things in common don't work independently. For example the driver combo lock works which activates the electric lock, this checks the fuses and relays in that circuit which would mean the switch on that door uses the same circuitry. The keyfob also goes through the control module but then again so does the rear lock but the module is the only real thing in common. The wiring harnesses are not in common either. The only thing I can think to do is have the module diagnosed on the computer. Sorry, But I hope this helps!

2008 g6 sedan trunk will only open with key after having a big item stuffed in trunk fuses are ok


Did you check for a loose electrical connector on the trunk lock mechanism? There was a small two prong connector that was loose on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Am I connected it and the trunk button on drivers door now works and when I get a new key fob I am sure it will work.

1994 buick lesabre trunk lock-how can I open the trunk without using a key. the key doesn't work although it open the doors to the car. is there a release button somewhere? we do not have the r


If it has the electric trunk release, the button could be in the glove box.
Otherwise you may have to remove the back seat to gain entry to the trunk.

Wireless Key Remote door & trunk opener won't work with trunk anymore


When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise

All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

Just bought a used 1998 Volvo S70 (as is). Have 1 remote & it opens the car. Have 3 keys that all start the car, open trunk, but none of them can open the driver's door. That is the only door...


obvious and thats because someone has damaged the lock ,go to dealer and order a new lock for that door with the chassis number and change the lock ,unless the back of the lock mechanism is damaged do the keys turn in the lock and nothing happens or wont they do into teh lock??

Not locking have to manuely lock from inside the car


the wires in the trunk lid are broken. this model has poorly designed electrical. there is a wire bundle on the right hand side of the trunk lid open the bundle up and resplice the 4 wires. this will correct the doors and remote trunk opener.

VW Jetta 2003 1.9 TDI trunk does not want to open with remote My Jetta trunk recently started to give me problems without warning. I cannot get the trunk open with the remote. The trunk only opens manually...


If your lock actuator engages (you can hear the sound it makes) with the remote/electric button on the door, but the trunk doesn't open then the problem is likely a broken plastic arm that the electric assembly pushes. You can see it if you unscrew the inside cover from the trunk lid and try the remote. I started having the same issue with VW Jetta 2002 GLS that was rear-ended 8 months ago. My guess is the cracked plastic finally gave out in the cold weather.
