Question about 2004 Mazda 6

1 Answer

Power trunk not activating.

The power trunk solenoid will not activate during normal use. It does not matter whether I use the button on the dash or the key fob, nothing works. I cannot find any information on the electrical circuit for this system. I have checked for power at the connector in the trunk lid. There are three wires in this connector. One of the wires is a ground wire, one of the wires has 12vdc on it and the other has 0vdc. With a meter across the two wires showing 12vdc and 0vdc I do not see any change when I activate the power trunk using the key fob. This would tell me that my problem is not with the power trunk solenoid directly. Please can you shed some light on this situation for me. Thanks Blake

My trunk wont open after un locking cars security system but after unlocking trunk from inside of car trunk latch works as long as trunk is open


No mention of make/model but does key fob open doors OK? If so it isn't the fob batteries... Could still be a bad button on the fob but it could be a balky solenoid on the trunk latch. Maybe try 12V direct to the solenoid?

Trunk wont release with button on dash or using key fob


Hi, I believe this may be a fuse problem. The owners manual will show you the fuse box or boxes locations and what each fuse powers. If it is a blown fuse it may be that something in the trunk pinched the wire and shorted it. The wires as they run from the body to the trunk lid is a good place to check for a pinched wire or short. The unlock solenoid may be the culprit if it shorted out, just a possibility. If a fuse is blown, replace it then check to see if the brake light works. If so then try opening the trunk electronically, if the fuse blows again then you know that circuit is the problem. Good Luck, Jim

Trunk button doesn't work


I have a 2003 Nissan Sentra and have had this problem myself. When you operate the slide switch that is left of the steering wheel on the dash or push the trunk button on your key fob, can you hear the solenoid click, but the truck doesn't open? If it does, open the truck with your key and raise the lid. I found that the lever assembly in the bottom lock was hanging up. I lubricated with WD-40 and using a small screw driver I moved the levers until they moved smoothly. Then activated the key fob switch and it started operating. If the solenoid doesn't work then there probably is an electrical problem. Let me know.

But a used 2006 solara but key fob does not remotely open trunk. Any suggestions?


Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.

Engine compartment lid of Pontiac Fiero


There are only 4 ways to open a Fiero trunk. With the key, with the electric trunk release, with a locksmith, and with a big hammer and screwdriver.

Some year Fieros required the parking brake be applied to activate the electric release, some had to be in park, and some of the early models would work just by pushing the button. The ground is through the latch, itself. If anything has gotten on the body portion of the latch and the trunk was closed, like a towel or plastic bag, that prevents the trunk portion from making metal to metal contact with the body striker, the release won't activate. If you can put power to the car, insert a key into the trunk lock, clamp one end of a negative jumper cable to it, and the other end underneath to some part of the frame. Hit the release button. This trick completes the ground circuit directly into the latch mechanism and bypasses the body striker plate.

If this doesn't work, remove the release switch from the dash, unplug it, and apply power with a 9V flashlilght battery to the terminals. You may have to play with the emergency brake handle during these processes.
