Can not open trunk on a pontiac soltice. No clicking sound from remote or switch in glove box fuses are ok


The rear compartment lid release system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top cover actuator
• GMLAN serial data link
• Keyless entry transmitter
• Rear compartment lid ajar switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Rear compartment lid release switch
• Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
• Trunk fuses
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release System Operation
The rear compartment lid can be released by operating the rear compartment lid release switch or pressing the rear compartment lid release button on the keyless entry transmitter. When the rear compartment lid release switch is operated, the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is switched to ground. The BCM receives the rear compartment lid release switch input and applies ground to the trunk release relay control circuit. This energizes the trunk release relay coil, closing the switch side contacts, allowing battery voltage to be applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator and folding top cover actuator, releasing the buttresses and opening the rear compartment lid. Ground for the rear compartment lid release switch is provided at G300. The rear compartment lid ajar switch, rear compartment lid release actuator, and folding top cover actuator are provided ground at G301. The rear compartment lid will not release until the vehicle speed is zero and in park.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B3265 01 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Battery
DTC B3265 06 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Ground or Open

Do you know what a relay is an how it works ? TRUNK release relay located in the underhood fuse / relay box.

My remote is bad and the button on the door of my 2008 saturn aura xr will not open the trunk


How about a key ?

Luggage Compartment Description and Operation (Sedan)
Rear Compartment Lid Release
The rear compartment lid can be released in one of three ways:
• Inserting the key into the key lock cylinder, if equipped
• Operating the rear compartment lid release switch
• Using the keyless entry fob
To operate rear compartment lid with the rear compartment lid release switch or with the rear compartment release button on the key fob, the gear selector may be in any position, but vehicle speed must equal 0 for the rear compartment lid to release.
When the rear compartment lid release switch is pushed, the rear compartment lid release signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is grounded. BCM then grounds the coil side of the trunk release relay through the trunk release relay control circuit. With this voltage is applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator, opening the rear compartment.

do you know how to do electrical testing ?

Circuit/System Verification
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Trunk Release Switch parameter while pressing and releasing the rear compartment lid release switch. The parameter should change between Active and Inactive.
? If the parameter does not change, refer to Trunk Release Switch Malfunction.
Command the trunk release with a scan tool, the rear compartment lid latch should release the trunk lid.
? If the rear compartment lid latch does not release, refer to Rear Compartment Lid Latch Malfunction

You may want to take it to a repair shop .

My trunk will not open. When I take off battery cable and replace, it opens once. Is there an easy fix? relay etc?


When the rear compartment lid release switch is pushed, the rear compartment lid release signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is grounded. BCM then grounds the coil side of the trunk release relay through the trunk release relay control circuit. With this voltage is applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator, opening the rear compartment.
Rear Compartment Lid Release Relay
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the trunk relay.
  2. Test for 65-90 ohms of resistance between terminals 85 and 86.
  3. ?‡'
    If the resistance is not within the specified range, replace the trunk relay.

  4. Test for infinite resistance between the following terminals:
  5. ?€¢
    30 and 86


    ?€¢
    30 and 87


    ?€¢
    30 and 85


    ?€¢
    85 and 87


    ?‡'
    If less than infinite resistance, replace the relay.

  6. Install a 10-amp fused jumper wire between relay terminal 85 and 12 volts. Install a jumper wire between relay terminal 86 and ground. Measure for less than 2 ohms of resistance between terminals 30 and 87.
?‡'
If greater than 2 ohms, replace the relay.


Rear Compartment Lid Release Relay Malfunction

  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the trunk relay.
  2. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the coil side B+ circuit of the trunk relay and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal and the B+ circuit fuse is open, test the voltage control circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, test or replace the trunk relay.

  4. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the switch side B+ circuit of the trunk relay and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.

  6. Disconnect the harness connector at the rear compartment lid latch.
  7. Ignition OFF, test for less than 5 ohm of resistance between the rear compartment lid latch ground circuit and ground.
  8. ?‡'
    If greater than the specifed range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.

  9. Connect a test lamp between the trunk release relay control circuit and the coil side B+ circuit of the trunk relay.
  10. Command the trunk release solenoid ON and OFF with a scan tool.
  11. ?‡'
    If the test lamp remains ON all the time, test the control circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.


    ?‡'
    If the test lamp remains OFF all the time, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.

  12. Connect the harness connector at the rear compartment lid latch.
  13. Connect a 3-amp fused jumper wire between the switch side B+ circuit of the trunk relay and the voltage control circuit of the lid latch. Verify that the lid latch activates.
  14. ?‡'
    If the lid latch does not activate, test the control circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, test or replace the rear compartment lid latch.

  15. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the trunk relay.
Component Testing
Rear Compartment Lid Release Switch
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the rear compartment lid release switch.
  2. Test for infinite resistance between the trunk release switch supply voltage and ground terminals with the switch in the open position.
  3. ?‡'
    If less than infinite resistance, replace the rear compartment lid release switch.

  4. Test for less than 2 ohms of resistance between the trunk release switch supply voltage and ground terminals with the switch in the closed position.
  5. ?‡'
    If greater than 2 ohms, replace the rear compartment lid release switch.

  6. Test for infinite resistance between each terminal and the lid release switch housing/case.
?‡'
If less than infinite resistance, replace the rear compartment lid release switch.


Could be the relay , could be the switch , could be a problem with the BCM !

How do I replace the rear trunk lid lock actuator on a 2002 porsche boxster


Incorrect. There is an emergency release cable that can be operated manually but will most likely require removal of the rear bumper and is located on the nearside (left side) of the rear bumper.

My Boxter battery is dead and I am not able open the trunk lid.


I have had this occur before. After I called AAA they showed me what I was doing wrong. The diagram in the book dose not show the correct place to ground the cable. It shows that you should attach to a door latch near the rear of the car. Acutally, you need to ground the cable by attaching to the door hinge. Hope that helps.

Manually openning the trunk of a 2002 porsche boxster


It can only be done using the key fob. Othersise use button inside the car. If your battery is flat you need a donor battery wiring to a connection in the fuse box (positive) anf door lock(negative) but see your hand book.

Access rear trunk release cable


This happened to me too on my Porsche Boxter S 2004 - the actuator is working, the battery is charged - but the rear trunk won't open from the key fob or the inside release.

I removed the driver's side rear tire, I removed one nut from the wheel well cover closest to the back of the car, I looked inside and saw a cable. The wheel well cover could be pulled back enough to fit my hand in, so I reached in and pulled - the tunk popped open.

The problem is that my primary rear trunk release cable is broken - still need to fix that problem - but the trunk is open.
