    You could get along by just using your key to open the doors for now
    but I suggest you do not use the remote until you get the part replaced. the door motor can be a problem too so get it repaired.

    Then its need a repair man who can identify the correct door motor which has gone bad, its not the remote its the door motor.

Rear Compartment Lid Release
The rear compartment lid can be released by depressing the rear release button in the glove box or holding either front power door lock switch to the unlock position for a minimum of 2 seconds or by pressing the rear compartment release button on the key fob. The transmission must be in the PARK position for the rear compartment to release. No Key lock on the trunk ?

On 2006 saab conv trunk wont unlock using handle on trunk lid, works using remote and door button


Saab have an auto-lock to thier trunks. So that nobody else can open your trunk while you're in the car etc. If you open and then closes a doot the lock should unlock. If not, your modell is only unlockable with key/doorbutton.

Vw 2004 passat alarm goes of when car is locked


If I stand correct the security system when functioning when remote locking is executed the horn and parking lights should sound and flash once unless there is an open door, hood, trunk lid and the lights would flash but no horn confirmation (beep) Does this happen when manual locking the car with the door lock mechanism?

2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold


you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

2006 Porsche cayenne trunk will not open.


Emergency operation of rear lid
If the rear lid cannot be opened with the radio
remote control (e.g., if the battery of the remote
control is dead), the emergency operation must
be performed:
1. Unlock and open the driver's door with the
vehicle key.
2. Switch on the ignition so that the alarm system
will not be triggered.
3. Check if the TAILGATE function is activated in
the multi-purpose display of the instrument
panel.
Please observe the chapter “TAILGATE” on
Page 119.
4. Press the central locking button in the armrest.
The rear lid is now unlocked and can be opened
with the unlocking handle

Trunk wont open


MY 06 Impala tunk would not open using my key fob, or the trunk button on my car . IF you own this vehicle you know that there is no manual keyhole on the trunk. I had to remove my back seat . It is held on by two bolts. In the trunk on the trunk lid is an emergency release handle. Once the trunk is open you need to remove the lock mechanism. Take a test lightand check the wire harness. If you are getting power to the harness and the lock still does not work, you need to replace it. GM wanted 189 for a new lock mechanism, i went to a auto scrap yard. they didnt have an 06 impala, but they did have an 06 malibu. they use the same lock system.the wire connectors for the harnesses look different but it fits fine. the only drawback is my convenience light in my trunk does not work when the trunk is open. only cost 15 bucks for the part.
