There is a lock solenoid in the trunk. You will need to check for power and ground at the solenoid while activating the switch.

You may have simply pushed the valet button inside your glove box. The button need to released or in the out position for the trunk relase to work on the remote.

SOURCE: trunk will not open with or without key

hello theres really not many choices if you have a trunk key it should work if not and the inside trunk release isnt working either you could try to get at the lock setup from the back seat take your lower seat out remove the lower holding bolts slide up off the top lock setup see if theres enough room to work from there to pop the trunk open with a flash light and a screwdriver if not your going to have to pop the lock cylinder at your trunk once its out you can get a aftermarket replacement under $ 20 goodluck please rate

SOURCE: Locked keys in trunk

I believe you can remove the back seat and get into it. Remove the lower part of the back seat first and remove attaching bolts/screws to remove the upper part of the seat.

SOURCE: my trunk switch from inside wont open trunk

Yes, it has a fuse but I do not have a diagram unfortunately. Or it could be your indicator switch on the inside driver's side of the trunk. The remote will not work if the trunk is already open OR if the switch is bad/not contacting the stopper (at the base of the trunk) and falsley telling the PCM that the trunk is ajar. But if this were the problem, your should be getting a warning that your "trunk is ajar" from the onboard warning display on the guage cluster. The switch is cheesy...had to replace mine.

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.

My trunk will not open when I use my key fob. A4 1.8T Quattro


I had the same problem. Try open the trunk with your key insert underneath and turn to the left or right I forgot but that should unlock the trunk. Now try to open with the key fob it should work?

My key wont unlock the trunk anymore but the remote opener does.


There is a cable that runs from the key cylinder to the latch mechanism. There are clips that hold the cable housing in place, and if one of those comes loose then turning the key just moves the housing without releasing the latch. Check the clip closest to the latch. To get the trunk open drop the back seat, crawl in, and pull on the cable.

It is also possible that the cable is broken or damaged and needs to be replaced -- I assume you will then need to replace the enrite assembly.

Trunk release, interior lights, locks etc does not work


Hi,

To open the trunk, you could try:
1. using the key, push down on the back of the trunk while turning the key. A word of caution and try not to force otherwise, the key might be twisted cut;
2. use the automatic trunk opener (in the glove compartment). You would need someone to press down on button while another is pushing down on the back of the trunk;
3. alternately, there are some models where the rear seats fold down and opens into the trunk.

On the fuse/interior lights and locks, if you have replaced with a known good fuse and problem persist, it may be caused by:
a. corroded or loose fuse holder;
b. corroded or loose fuse block connector;
c. corroded or loose harness connector (unfortunately inside the trunk);
d. defective wiring harness;
e. loose ground.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

1990 nissan maxima trunk release switch


Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.
Cheers..
