Pop open the glove box. If my memory serves me, there's a trunk release button in there.

I have a 2004 a6 and my trunk will not open i hear it unlocking but will not open how can i get it open


Hey Jeff.. have you tried to open the trunk while you are putting pressure down on it? Try pushing down while using the remote and the pull up.. If it opens, the trunk is being held down with too much pressure for the release to work.. the gasket could be causing it not to release.. or the latch is too tight.. either can be easily remedied.

2003 Cadillac deville trunk randomly opens on its own when sitting and not running occasionally what could be the cause.


Do you know anything about automotive electrical testing ? how to read a wiring diagram ? How to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? You can find a free wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html

The trunk release is controlled by an electronic control moduel .
Trunk Release Relay
Output Controls
The rear integration module grounds the trunk relay when commanded ON. The rear compartment should release.

This vehicle has a very complex body control system of three different computers

The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Each of the 3 body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each module is connected to the Class 2 serial data circuit, many of the control functions are implemented by Class 2 messages.

. Rear Integration Module (RIM)
The various RIM inputs and outputs are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the RIM electrical schematics.
The RIM functions include the following:
• Automatic level control
• CIGAR relay control
• Class 2 communication requiring RIM interaction
• Content theft deterrent
• Fuel door control
• Fuel level sensor input
• Heated seat control
• HVAC blower control
• LK/CYL relay control
• Park brake relay control
• Rear defog relay control
• Rear park assist chime control
• Retained accessory power (RAP) relay control
• Reverse relay control
• Transmission shift inhibit
• Trunk release relay control
• Various controls for the interior lamps


Luggage Compartment Description and Operation (General)
Rear Compartment Lid (trunk) release actuation is controlled by the following components.
• Rear Compartment Lid Release Relay
• Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• Rear Integration Module (RIM)
• Valet Switch
• Rear Compartment Lid Release Switch
• Rear Compartment Lid Release Actuator
Battery voltage for the coil side of the trunk release relay is supplied through the Valet switch (with the valet switch in the OFF position) by the ALDL fuse located in the Underhood Fuse (Bussed) Block. Battery voltage for the switch side of the trunk release relay is supplied by the Body fuse located in the Rear Fuse (Bussed) Block. When the rear compartment lid release switch is momentarily pressed, it provides a ground circuit for the trunk release signal of the Instrument Panel Module (IPM). When the IPM senses that the switch has been activated, it sends a Serial Data Class 2 message to the Rear Integration Module (RIM). The RIM then provides a path to ground on the F/TNK DR REL relay control circuit. The trunk release relay is then energized, and battery voltage is applied through the switch side contacts of the trunk release relay to the rear compartment lid release actuator. The actuator is connected to ground through a ground splice pack located at the left rear corner of the rear compartment, near the left tail lamp connector.

2007 BMW 328i trunk will not open


If trunk won't open on 328, open the pass through on rear seat, then use a walking cane or something else that hat a hook on end to reach the emergency release lever located on the inside bottom of trunk lid. I disconnect my battery for five months, and this is how I gain access to the battery. Also, check fuse box in glove box to see if the trunk activator fuse is blown.

Interior trunck release button does not work


There may be a multitude of problems.
1st: the button may be bad. It is just a swicth that makes a wiring connection that sends a signal to the trunk unit.
2nd: if the button is good, then the receiver in the trunk that activates the trunk release may be bad.
If either is bad the trunk release will not work.

Hi-I have a 1992 Cad. Eldorado with a remote trunk release feature. It no longer works. Also, there is a button in the glove compartment that releases the trunk also which does not work. In the trunk...


Most...note the word most of the release units are mounted directly to the latch assy. Some are remotly mounted and use a release cable. Check near the latch for the release mechanism.
The clicking of the box is a good thing that means power is making it back that far. You did not mention the location of the box but if it is near the latch then it is most likely part of the mechanism. If it is mounted away from the latch then it is a module and wires should come out of it and run up the trunk to the release. if in doubt...pull out the trunk latch after marking the location of its mounting. Looking at the back side of the latch should make things clearer as to how the release works. With it out you could check for power at the release. If power is there you will need a new release. (kinda sounds like your problem)
Good luck!

My trunk lock and release is no longer working in my 2005 Toyota Corolla. Although I can turn the key left and right as per owner's manual, trunk will not "pop open". Back seat release is in trunk; removed...


In my '04 corolla I can unlatch the left passenger seat back by reaching behind the left seat back and sticking my finger up into the second of 3 quarter sized holes. my arm is about 15" stuck in and reaching up into the trunk about 6" back. Feel around for the holes. You can pull the latch at that point, but...you have to be flexible.

2003 Toyota Corolla LE back seat fold down? how?!


My 05 Corolla trunk would not open. I used a broom handle shoved between the rear seats to activate the emergency release handle on the back of the trunk lid. It took about 2 minutes. When I tapped it just right the lid popped open. This was better the damaging the rear seat by bending it to reach the seat releass mechanism. It turned out that the cable came off in the asembly probably from slamming the lid shut. Once the cable was returned to its location I used needle nose pliers to sqeeze the metal tighter around the cable.
