Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu
The remote won't open the trunk of my 2004 chevrolet malibu. I can open it with the key. The garage wants $350.00 to repair this. Is there a way to do it cheaper? I already know it's not the fuse.
Thanks in advance

SOURCE: trunk lide wont open
Try to apply pressure from the top of the trunk and push short burst while using the key, If this doese not work you can try to enter from the rear seat taking out the bolts for the rear back rest.

The headlamp assembly on each side comes out as a unit. Raise the hood. Remove black plastic cover that hides the assembly. This is done by prying up on the plastic tabs on the cover that hold them in place. (They look like inserts) Once you pull up on the center portion of tab, the whole fastener comes out. Once the cover is out of the way, you will see these square black (about an inch Sq.) horizonal plates of which are connected to ball like fixtures (ball and socket) you pull up on the plates which release the ball to come out of the socket. The headlight assembly will swing out at the top, then raise straight up once it clears top. The headlight bulbs will now be accessible. Turn light bulb socket (with the wiring) counterclockwise 1/4 turn to remove. replace bulb. wipe clean with paper towel or cloth before reinstalling, as acid from skin or other contaminates will destroy bulbs. reinstall in reverse.
Please rate me so I know if I helped.

SOURCE: Chevy Malibu Trunk Problem
Sounds like your automatic trunk release is binding or stalled and needs to be replaced. Check the owners manual to see where the fuse is for the trunk release and verify that the fuse is ok. Sometimes if you press down on the trunk, it is easier to open the release manually. I don't have a Malibu but the rear hatch release in my SUV and in many of my friends vehicles has acted up in this manner.

Testimonial: "Thanks, that gets us on the right track!"
Standing at the front of the car looking at the intake manifold, its on the right hand side of the manifold about 6 inches down from the valve cover under a black cap with a 32mm top on it.
