Trunk locks not opening


This is very complex if your not familiar with how Class 2 serial data communications work . When you press that trunk lid release button it sends a low voltage signal to the BCM - body control module. Here is how the factory service info. says how it works .
When the vehicle is in park and the trunk release switch is pressed it grounds the rear compartment lid release switch input in the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM then sends a Class 2 message to the Remote Function Actuator (RFA). The RFA supplies an internal ground for the coil side of the rear compartment lid release relay activating the relay. The rear compartment lid release actuator receives battery voltage through the 15 A trunk release fuse when the relay closes. Ground is supplied by G400.
Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a dealer or some other qualified repair shop that has a factory scan tool or a professional grade type .
You could check the TRK/REL relay in the rear fuse/ relay box .Because you can't test the class 2 data to the rear integrated module. Fuse Block Rear

OK I have a 95 Chevy caprice there is a hole where my trunk lock is suppose to be, I bought the part to put in a new lock but I need to get in the trunk I cannot open it at all I need help


- Look at the part you bought to see what motion will be activated to release the trunk lid once it is installed.
- Look into the hole to see where that motion will happen, and find the piece that will get moved.
- Use a screwdriver or bend a small piece of metal so that you can reach the triggering mechanism.
- Press down on the trunk lid to reduce pressure on the latch mechanism, and move the release linkage appropriately.
- Should pop open.

My security light on my 05 maxima stopped blinking when n lock position n lock n unlock switch n trunk lid stopped working also n car wont start what could b the problem


Sounds crazy but a locksmith showed me this trick. Open the trunk and remove the pretty cover under the lid so you have access to the trunk lock, there are two wires leading to the alarm for the trunk. pull that off and away from the lock mechanism and once you do that wave a magnet over the flat steel part of it. It will reset your alarm...

Can't open the trunk of my chevy cavalier 2003 with key or button. can I get in the trunk from the inside of the car?


with the stamped brackets that add strength to this area behind the rear seat i don`t think you can gain access this way.so you can try pulling the trunk lock out with a dent puller and replace the trunk lock.there is a lock clip that holds the lock in the trunk lid that you may have to replace as well.the new trunk lock can be keyed to your original key as well.

My trunk will not open with the inside trunk release nor with the keyless remote? I think it's a loose wire, but where would I start to find it?


if the key opens the trunk by hand, the problem is most likely the electric actuator or its linkage on the backside of the lock assembly accessible thru trunk or lid check linkage and wire connector first, check for voltage at connector when release button is pushed.. reply back if you have further questions...MK

My trunk will not open. The inside latch feels like it is not connected and the key won't turn in the lock.


its sad to say that you will do something difficult, remove your backseat and make an access to get you go inside, be carefull and dont forget to bring light, take a look on the linkage from the lock position if it is still there, pull it, f its not on the position see the linkage of trunk striker, turn in on the way that you can open your trunk

My trunk for a 2000 Jetta will not open. The noise it makes while opening comes on, but it does not open. I have tried using the key, but it will not open. Please help, as I have to change a brake light,...


There is a plastic part in the linkage from the electric solinoid to the trunk release. The key activates the same solinoid but if you turn the key with more force it will activate the trunk release using a mechanical hook-up. If you remove the carpet covering from the inside of the trunk lid behind the key hole you will see the broken part.
