Question about Porsche Boxster

1 Answer

The remote hood release solenoid for the front storage compartment is not releasing fully. The fuse is good. There is a definite relay click when the trunk is released and a low pitch thunk when the front is tried. Where is the manual cable release located. Most forums state it is in driver side front wheel well in top next to spring pack. Others state in the headlight well. My owners manual shows an emergency escape egress handle inside boot on passenger side.

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.

Can open my trunk doesn't work with remote or from inside of glove compartment thanks 2005 ssr chevorlet


Rear Compartment Lid
The rear compartment lid can be opened by operating the rear compartment lid release switch, located on the instrument panel, or by using the manual release located on the rear compartment lid. Battery voltage is supplied to the rear compartment lid release relay through the Main Power fuse. The roof and door module (RDM) receives the rear compartment lid release request via the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit. The RDM grounds the rear compartment lid release relay coil when a release input is received through the instrument panel (I/P) switch. Grounding the coil causes the rear compartment lid release relay to energize, providing power to the rear compartment lid latch assembly through the rear compartment lid release actuator supply voltage circuit.
As an alternate method of operating the rear compartment, an emergency release handle is accessible from within the rear compartment. When the handle is slightly pulled, it will provide a ground for the bed cover release relay which will cause the actuator to operate and open the rear compartment lid. If the handle is pulled further, it will mechanically open the lid, so even if the battery is discharged or there is an electrical concern, the emergency release handle will mechanically open the lid.

My trunk will not open. When I take off battery cable and replace, it opens once. Is there an easy fix? relay etc?


When the rear compartment lid release switch is pushed, the rear compartment lid release signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is grounded. BCM then grounds the coil side of the trunk release relay through the trunk release relay control circuit. With this voltage is applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator, opening the rear compartment.
Rear Compartment Lid Release Relay
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the trunk relay.
  2. Test for 65-90 ohms of resistance between terminals 85 and 86.
  3. ?‡'
    If the resistance is not within the specified range, replace the trunk relay.

  4. Test for infinite resistance between the following terminals:
  5. ?€¢
    30 and 86


    ?€¢
    30 and 87


    ?€¢
    30 and 85


    ?€¢
    85 and 87


    ?‡'
    If less than infinite resistance, replace the relay.

  6. Install a 10-amp fused jumper wire between relay terminal 85 and 12 volts. Install a jumper wire between relay terminal 86 and ground. Measure for less than 2 ohms of resistance between terminals 30 and 87.

If greater than 2 ohms, replace the relay.


Rear Compartment Lid Release Relay Malfunction

  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the trunk relay.
  2. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the coil side B+ circuit of the trunk relay and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal and the B+ circuit fuse is open, test the voltage control circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, test or replace the trunk relay.

  4. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the switch side B+ circuit of the trunk relay and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.

  6. Disconnect the harness connector at the rear compartment lid latch.
  7. Ignition OFF, test for less than 5 ohm of resistance between the rear compartment lid latch ground circuit and ground.
  8. ?‡'
    If greater than the specifed range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.

  9. Connect a test lamp between the trunk release relay control circuit and the coil side B+ circuit of the trunk relay.
  10. Command the trunk release solenoid ON and OFF with a scan tool.
  11. ?‡'
    If the test lamp remains ON all the time, test the control circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.

Locked out of trunk 2000 cadillac eldorado release button not working i removed lock on trunk still cant get in trunk


Pressing the rear compartment lid release switch provides an input signal to the instrument cluster. The instrument cluster sends a Class 2 serial data message to the body control module (PZM). The PZM grounds connector C6 of the rear compartment lid release solenoid through CKT 1344 (LT BLU) if the following conditions are present:
?€¢
The transaxle is in the PARK position.


?€¢
The valet lockout switch is closed.

Power is supplied through the following components to the now-grounded CKT 1344 (LT BLU):
?€¢
The RADIO/PHONE fuse


?€¢
CKT 40 (ORN)


?€¢
The coil of the rear compartment lid release relay
The relay coil energizes and closes the relay contacts.
Power is supplied from the CONVENIENCE fuse through the following components:
?€¢
CKT 2040 (ORN)


?€¢
The now-closed relay contacts


?€¢
CKT 56 (BLK/WHT)


?€¢
The rear compartment lid release solenoid
The solenoid energizes and the rear compartment lid latch assembly releases the rear compartment lid.

Trunk release for 98 pont gp no power, can't find the fuse and the switch itself was checked and was good


Check trunk release solenoid for power and ground when applied from switch. If power and ground ok, then release solenoid is the problem in the trunk lock mechanism. If misssing power or ground, then electrical diagnostics will be required

My trunk won't open. What's wrong


Hi Annette, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Annette, if you are already able to get inside the trunk, remove the lever that goes to the lock actuator because the actuator may be locked up. Then see if it will open. NOTE: If the lock solenoid is mounted to the latch this will not work. If that doesn't help, then see if you can remove the bolts that hold the latch to the trunk and open the trunk that way so you can see better what the problem could be. Keep me posted at my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Back up lights and truck release not working, changed fuses


If you replaced the 10A B/U fuse in the underhood fuse block, power should be getting to the park/neutral position switch. In the R position, the back-up lamps should turn on. If not, the lamps could be burned out, the switch could be defective or the sockets could be corroded, or the black ground wire could be disconnected/broken

The path from the B/U fuse to the park/neutral position switch is the same. With the switch set to P, the rear compartment lid release relay closes and the rear compartment lid lock release actuator solenoid operates to pop the trun. There is a parallel path through the manual rear compartment lid release switch which also should pop the trunk. If the trunk can't be released either automatically or manually, the solenoid may be defective or the relay or switch could be defective or there may be no input from the body control manual or the remote control door lock receiver could be defective

How do i open the hood.


there should be a lever that is on the bottom edge of dash that is under the steering wheel along the trim. if the handle is broken you can use pliers to grab the cable and pull it to get the hood to realse. if you found all that and i seems to work ok then when pulling the release lever have a friend hit or shake the hood to get it to pop up a little so that you can open it all the way.

Power Distribution Box
Located under the hood, inthe engine compartment. It houses the fuses and relays for most of theunder hood components which are not controlled by a dash mounted switch(such as the alternator, fuel pump, ECM, etc.). The fuses and relaysare replaced in the same manner as the fuse panel inside the vehicle.The power distribution box cover is hinged on one end and utilizes aretaining latch on the other. Simply release the latch and lift thecover up to gain access to the fuses and relays.

Good luck (remember rated this help).
