SOURCE: Power decklid won't pull trunk down. Replaced

If it works intermittently, you probably have a damaged wire -- my guess would be where the wiring harness goes to the trunk lid. The constant motion of use can damage the wires internally. They still look ok on the outside usually, you'll have to check them electrically (with a meter or test light) The other possibility is damage to the harness that goes to the latch from something moving in the trunk and hitting it. Good luck.

Where is the courtesy light switch in the drivers door on a 1998 Navigator


courtesy light switch , is door ajar switch an it's part of the door lock actuator . Light on coming on ? Not going off ? The ajar switch is a input to the GEM module , fords BCM - body control module . The GEM will energize a relay to turn on the lights .
The GEM will illuminate the interior lamps when any door is open or ajar. The interior lamps are; the dome lamp, the rear cargo lamp, the door courtesy lamp and the side rail lamps. The courtesy lamps will shut off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active or when the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h). The interior lamps will not be reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a new door open warning lamp switch is received.
The GEM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry function by activating the interior lamp relay.
Mite be a good idea to have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

B1325 Door Ajar Lamp Circuit Short to Battery GEM REFER to Section 413-01 . B1330 Passenger Door Ajar Circuit Short to Ground GEM REFER to Section 417-02 .

Just bought 1990 Corvette convertible w/Hardtop. we took the hardtop off to put the convertible top up - left driver's side latch works, the right side will NOT release - we can't get the hatch open to get...


All I can do is suggest as my 'Vette's are older.

If my research is correct, I did find that the decklid latch mechanism is released by a cable. The cable probably has stuck in the cable sheath, due to years of neglect, (Failure to periodically lube the cable. Hint/hint)

You need to manually release the decklid mechanism.
Now bear with me, as again, my 'Vette's are older, ('70 and '76), and their seats tilt forward.

If you can tilt the passenger seat forward, perhaps you can get in there and lube this cable through it's sheath. (Use penetrating oil at first. I would then remove the cable, and clean it, then lube it, after getting the decklid open. Lube? White Lithium in a spray can)

Then try to pull the latch mechanism in the direction the cable would pull it, to release it.
(The cable may be broken?)

Yes! Whoever does this feat of magic, of getting to that decklid mechanism, will look like a contortionist! Hit the jacuzzi afterwards! lol!

1998 Saab Bell will not stop dinging, even when key is removed.


the lights are most likely the third brake light on the decklid... small line of led brake lights small unit.. i would clean the ignition switch with some quick start and cycle the key in and out to clean up the contact on the bottom some times soda or coffe gets in there and makes the car think that the cars key is in the ignition

4wd not engaging


Is it a two wire actuator or a three wire actuator? The two wire ones are pretty unreliable. that is why Chevrolet converter them to the three wire. Check for power and ground on the two wire in 4wd. For the three is should have one ground wire, one wire that is hot in 4wd, and one wire that is hot in 2wd.
