Cables are not hook up to battery someone close trunk now cant get trunk open


Why are your battery cables off? Does the trunk have a key lock? With some makes and models, the rear seat back will fold down, allowing access to the trunk. If not, you may be able to remove rear seat back then see if you can access the trunk.

If the trunk release is electric, have to check wiring circuit and applicable fuse.

What is model year, I'll try to look up trunk release wiring circuit.

BATTERY GO DEAD OVERNIGHT ON A 1984 PONTIAC FIERO


If your fan isn't running it shouldn't be drawing electrical current, but this procedure should narrow down the cause:

The positive battery cable goes to the starter and a couple fusible links feed the fuse block from there. I recommend hooking up an ammeter inline with the negative battery cable and pulling fuses until you find the one that stops drawing current on the ammeter when you pull it. At that point you will have found the circuit that your battery killer is on. Look at a wiring diagram for your car and see what devices are on the guilty circuit. Look and see if those devices are on/broken/shorted.

Common causes of "overnight dead battery" are: courtesy/trunk light on with doors/hood/trunk closed/sticky power door lock solenoid/aftermarket equipment installed to constant power instead of keyed power.

Good luck,

How to turn off the rear compartment light on a 1986 fiero gt? It wont turn off. Light stays on and the


Pop your trunk. Look up at the latch assembly on the lid and it should be brass colored but maybe a fuzzy white from corrosion from a humid sealed trunk. On the rear facing you side is a black plastic switch assembly that is screwed to the metal latch. This is the switch that turns on the trunk light. When the lid closes the hook/striker should press this switch in but if it's worn/misaligned, it can fail to open the circuit and shut off the light. You can just remove the bulb to stop it from killing your battery and the Ajar light on your dash will go out when you shut the car off.

Good luck,

My mercedes clk battery dead i cant open trunk


On the side of the smart key there is a mechanical key that slides out of one of the sides-There should be a little release lever retaining the mechanical key. It can be inserted into the trunk lock and turned to open the trunk. There are several other positions the key can be turned to place the trunk lock actuation in different modes- it should be in your owner's manual Hopefully I have been helpful

Engine compartment lid of Pontiac Fiero


There are only 4 ways to open a Fiero trunk. With the key, with the electric trunk release, with a locksmith, and with a big hammer and screwdriver.

Some year Fieros required the parking brake be applied to activate the electric release, some had to be in park, and some of the early models would work just by pushing the button. The ground is through the latch, itself. If anything has gotten on the body portion of the latch and the trunk was closed, like a towel or plastic bag, that prevents the trunk portion from making metal to metal contact with the body striker, the release won't activate. If you can put power to the car, insert a key into the trunk lock, clamp one end of a negative jumper cable to it, and the other end underneath to some part of the frame. Hit the release button. This trick completes the ground circuit directly into the latch mechanism and bypasses the body striker plate.

If this doesn't work, remove the release switch from the dash, unplug it, and apply power with a 9V flashlilght battery to the terminals. You may have to play with the emergency brake handle during these processes.

Does the trunk of the Pontiac Fiero only open by keys or is there a hidden lever


Does your Fiero have a power trunk switch? I had the same problem where I locked the keys in the trunk and the battery was dead. I had a portable car jumper that had a cigarette lighter socket and basically hooked it up through the cigarette lighter in the Fiero. The power flowed from the portable jumper through the car to give it enough power to open the trunk. You could also splice a cigarette lighter cord to a battery and plug it in.
If you don't have power trunk then you may have to drill the lock. I have heard that Fiero's were all wired for power trunks but you had to pay for the "option" to have them put in the switch when they were band new. I wouls also suggest taking off the small trim panel to the right of the intrument cluster and see if there is a power trunk connector there. If there is then you could purchase a power trunk switch to pop the trunk. Unfortunately I own 5 Fiero's all of which came with power trunk so I was never able to verify if that rumor was true. Good luck.
