My 2008 town and country trunk will not open at all with key, inside or even manually. It just beeps and then sounds like it's latching to close again?


central locking fault might just need resetting, if you can get into the vehicle and remove the battery terminal. negative side. leave it off and then open all the doors by hand, and leave the doors open/boot as well. reconnect the battery after a few minuets or after 10min. it should reset. if not then it might be the drivers side lock that's the problem it has switches in there that control alarm and central locking

Removed bAttery from 2004 mini Cooper and accidentally closed the trunk where the battery go, how do I open the trunk when the key will not unlock the trunk


In the engine compartment you'll find a positive terminal you can use. Use jump cables to connect the positive and negative terminal of another car to this and some part well grounded in the engine compartment. After this your car got current from the other car and the trunk should now open. Brgds Jonas

Battery drain


When the car is shut off, there should be a very small load on the battery to keep the clock running, the security system on etc. But the amount of current is really small. If the battery is dying overnight, something is loading it;
Charge the battery right up.
Have ignition off, doors and trunk closed, no interior /exterior lights on and leave the driver door window open.
Take a fairly large automotive bulb like an 1157 or even a headlamp.
Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery.
Connect one wire to the negative terminal of the battery from the light, and the second light terminal to the negative battery cable you diconnected; connecting the light in series. Don't put the negative battery terminal on the battery.

The bulb should not light if all your ignition system is off and you have no lights turned on.

Turn on the lights or blow the horn by poking through the open window without opening the door, the test light should light and the horn sound.

If the light lights without anything being on, then you have something constantly draining the battery.

Go to the fuse panel and remove and re-install each fuse one at a time from every circuit. You may have to close the interior light door switch by pushing it with something while you are getting to the fuses so the circuit is in the off state all the time. Everything has to remain off.

When the light goes off when you removed a fuse, that is the circuit which is loading the battery. Check the fuse description for the circuit affected.

My guess is a trunk light that stays on even when the trunk is shut. If it is a lighting system fuse causing the problem, remove the trunk bulb and replace the fuse. If the light goes off, the trunk switch is defective keeping the light on all the time.

You can also place a battery charger on the battery (connect the negative back on the battery) and go and check the car in the dark. Is there a light on like a floor lighting in the interior? Do you have a light on under the hood that can't be seen during the day?

Always make sure you have a good charged battery, and that the terminals are really clean before you start analyzing the problem.
Does the alternator charge the battery? Check by measuring the volatge across the battery engine off, no charger connected; should be 12V or close.
Start the car, the meter should read 14V or so, but more than without engine running. If not, the alternator/charging circuit may be the real problem.

Anti theft will engage


Try disconnecting the positive from the alarm. Sometimes its connected straight to the battery. If its not connected to the battery look underneath the dash drivers side. Find the alarm brain, the power cable (RED) should have a fuse on it. Take the fuse off, disconnect the negative from the battery wait five minutes. Then connect everything, if you took off the right fuse the alarm should restart. If its still doing it the alarm is not the problem. If you have a trunk switch to the alarm, you can simply disconnect it. These switches are optional and often get corroded or defective almost always causing the problem described. After disconnecting the negative from the battery you might notice your car's driveability different. This is because the car's computer also gets restarted. Don't mess with anything in the car the computer will set on its own. Let me know if you still have a problem after this.

How to reset 1995 nissan sentra security system


larrylisa2: When you refer to reset, do you mean arm the system?
If so, it can be done providing all the doors, the trunk and hood are closed.
Using your key, you can lock the drivers door or passenger's door and it will arm the system. The trunk, all the doors and hood must be closed.
You can also arm the system without the key in the same fashion insuring all the doors, trunk and hood are closed.
To disarm the unit, you can do this from the driver's door, front passenger's door or the trunk lock.
The other option is the remote. There is one other way to shut down the alarm system. Disconnect the negative battery cable, put the ignition key in the run position and reconnect the cable. This will keep the system from arming until the car is locked.
There is no reset procedure other than the ones I have described.
