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.

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.

I just repaired a 2002 Aztek with a non working hatch. It was bad solonoid motors that were not releasing the latches.it is a fairly hard job to access the latches to release the hatch so you can get to the solonoids. You have toy crawl into the back of the vehicle and remove the bolts that hold the latch hooks. Once you have done this the glass top of the hatch will open. you can then use a screwdriver to reach down through the internal part of the latch and release it so you can access the bolts to disasemble the hatch to get to the solonoid motors. This is not a job a novice mechanic should atempt.It should be done by an experienced mechanic with the proper tools.
