Hello, The lid of my Pontiac Aztek will not open with either the remote or with the release button inside. Is there a way to open the lid manually so I can get into the trunk ?? Thank you.

Adding to the guest's comment, mine did the same thing too, taking the fuse out will reset the computer system.

Although it works, it's only a temporary fix. It's eventually going to get worse. Turns out Azteks are notorious for the Body Control Module going out.

I just went through a nightmare with mine and finally got it replaced.

It should resolve most the problems as it did with mine, but now ours is blowing fuses and the radio has locked itself thinking it's been stolen (and so a new journey begins)

Good luck, friend...I feel your pain!

Mine is a piece of **** too. If these two are not working then probably the key in the cylinder is not working either. Oper your hood, on the right hand side above the battery is the main fuse box, find fuse # 28 should be 10amp, pull it ot for at least 30 seconds and replace. It should open for you. Most likely this will start happening more and more though, mine is. And now the A/C will kick out withit too. I think this is a lead up to the computer going out later on. I'm starting to have a terrible time of it......Good luck and I hope it helps at least temporarily.

Can not open trunk on a pontiac soltice. No clicking sound from remote or switch in glove box fuses are ok


The rear compartment lid release system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top cover actuator
• GMLAN serial data link
• Keyless entry transmitter
• Rear compartment lid ajar switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Rear compartment lid release switch
• Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
• Trunk fuses
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release System Operation
The rear compartment lid can be released by operating the rear compartment lid release switch or pressing the rear compartment lid release button on the keyless entry transmitter. When the rear compartment lid release switch is operated, the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is switched to ground. The BCM receives the rear compartment lid release switch input and applies ground to the trunk release relay control circuit. This energizes the trunk release relay coil, closing the switch side contacts, allowing battery voltage to be applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator and folding top cover actuator, releasing the buttresses and opening the rear compartment lid. Ground for the rear compartment lid release switch is provided at G300. The rear compartment lid ajar switch, rear compartment lid release actuator, and folding top cover actuator are provided ground at G301. The rear compartment lid will not release until the vehicle speed is zero and in park.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B3265 01 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Battery
DTC B3265 06 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Ground or Open

Do you know what a relay is an how it works ? TRUNK release relay located in the underhood fuse / relay box.

2001 pontiac grand prix trunk release dose not work remote or inside car no power at release in trunk.


Sounds as though the motor may have quit working, check your fuse or the relay in the underhood power center. The key still works correct? Do you hear any noise when you try the remote switches? If you do the rods may have come loose or the holders may have broken.
