Hi,

To open the trunk, you could try:
1. using the key, push down on the back of the trunk while turning the key. A word of caution and try not to force otherwise, the key might be twisted cut;
2. use the automatic trunk opener (in the glove compartment). You would need someone to press down on button while another is pushing down on the back of the trunk;
3. alternately, there are some models where the rear seats fold down and opens into the trunk.

On the fuse/interior lights and locks, if you have replaced with a known good fuse and problem persist, it may be caused by:
a. corroded or loose fuse holder;
b. corroded or loose fuse block connector;
c. corroded or loose harness connector (unfortunately inside the trunk);
d. defective wiring harness;
e. loose ground.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 2004 Suzuki Forenza, the interior lights don't work, trunk release button don't work, windshield washer don't work. What could of caused this? If it is the fuse then which one. Help!


I have a 2004 Forenza. Don't know about the washer. The 15A fuse marked "I/P" next to the "Fuel Pump" fuse in the main relay center under the hood disables my trunk release and interior lights.
Found this out because the battery started to drain and die within a week. Several mechanics/electricians looked at it but couldn't figure out why. One pulled out that fuse and now the battery holds up fine. Problem is I don't have the use of the interior lights or trunk release.
Does anyone know what the cause of the battery drain is? Has something ground out? Btw, I got a small shock the last time I played with that fuse. Not sure if that's a sign of anything.

You might want to check with the dealer to see if you have the correct key. You could try some WD-40 on the lock. As far as getting to your trunk, you could go in from the back seat.
Did you check the circuit going to your lights with a meter?
