Question about 2006 Saturn Vue

1 Answer

Locked trunk For the past 6 months I have been having trouble opening my trunk with the key fob. It used to only happen when it was cold outside. Now it wont open at all. There is no release switch inside of the 2006 vue or a way to put a key into it and unlock it. How can I get the trunk open? When I put it into park it unlocks all my doors and when I use the fob it unlocks all my doors.

The release contact switch must be dirty and corroded...you will have to jiggle the rear hatch...when trying to open again...when open spray the hold down bracket, and the under side of the hatch that makes contact...the best spray for this is PB Blaster, available at Walmart auto parts section...this will not hurt the electric contacts...as you still cannot open the rear hatch, you will need to remove the inside panel of the rear hatch to expose the release arm on the inside of the hatch. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: door wont open

take off the plastic door panel and then there should b some plastic paper covering move it aside and reach ur hand to the back of the door (your doing this blindly) pull the door hanle to find the rod, once you find it find the latch from the inside of the door now feel for a hole and find the end of the door handle rod and place the door handle rod in the hole firmly. this should work.

SOURCE: Driver door wont open

sounds like a hinge problem or the locking device to the door. Might have to play starkey and hutch for a while and jump in the window. Just kidding !! I would take to the dealer and have them look at it. But it appears to be the locking device the way it sounds.

My trunk is stuck shut, how can I get it open? I can hear the lock mechanism unlatching using both the key fob and the latch by the drivers seat, but nothing is happening.


The seal around the Trunk is probably a bit sticky. It happens in winter. When you release the mechanism pull up on the trunk. To stop it happening spray the seal with a silicone spray like Jigaloo or dust it with talc.

2006 passat drivers side door locks wont open from outside when unlocked using fob


It sounds like you might have two door latches that are faulty.... But you can try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes and reconnect to see if that solves it. Sometimes VW's need their memory reset, have seen weird problems happen and this fixes it a lot of the time.

2011 Nissan Altima - trunk will not lock and if you push button on trunk after locking with key fob and it opens up - what's up with that?


My wife is in San Francisco on business right now. She is driving this vehicle as a rental and found out that the trunk can be opened after you have locked the car the hard way. Her luggage and computer was taken from the trunk because of an outer trunk release button that you can access. Nicely done Nissan. Thanks. (sarcasm)

2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold


you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

But a used 2006 solara but key fob does not remotely open trunk. Any suggestions?


Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.

I have a new shape ford focus (05)i cannot open the tailgate without useing the key fob ???????


does the hatch open with the trunk release in the car as it should since it sends an electronic signal just like the key fob. The cylinder for the trunk lock is most likely seized and if you want to replace.. you'll need to remove your trim for the trunk to access the locking assembly

Keys lock in trunk alarm will not allow trunk switch to lock


The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.

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.
