Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid
I had the same problem. I checked the fuse (good) and the electric latch. They both turned out good. I checked continuity on the wiring. This also showed good,......... initially!
I eventually found that I had continuity in the wiring when the trunk lid was in a certain position but not when it was closed.
I eventually found that there was a broken wire in the area where trunk hinges. Spliced in a 6 ft. section of wire to cover both side of the hinge area. Problem was solved.
Hope this helps...... or at least gives you food for thought.

Either the latch is stuck or the fuse is bad.

Actually, this car has security system that prevent the trunk opened without using the master key. I often use this to lock my trunk. Just slid up the tiny lever upward to allow the trunk open from inside. the lever is on the back trunk (in the center, behind the Tail light) where the trunk door hook up with the lock system.

Hi, yes there is. To release the trunk - look on the centre console, just rearward of the front seats and you will notice a separate rectangular section in the plastic, if you lift this out you will find a cable release for the trunk underneath. To open the fuel filler cap manually, look inside the car just behind the rear light on the same side as the fuel filler and you will notice a flap in the interior trim, which is to allow access to the rear lamp. Open this and then looking towards the top you should see a loop of orange plastic - pull this towards the rear of the car to release the fuel filler.
Hope that helps Matt..

When was the car wrecked? I say that because this lever is hooked up to a thin cable and goes all the way to the back of the car. A technician might have not secured the cable end correctly when the work was done. . Otherwise, the cable *could* go bad on its own, even though this would be pretty rare.
