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

Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

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.

Needles on dash guages (temp,fuel,speed) chatter or vibrate on their lower limit pins when the ignition switch is turned on or the engine is started. After about 30 seconds the needles move to their normal...


Disconnecting the leads from the solenoid,avtivating the switch, and reading 12V is normal because you are not reading anything but the signal applied to the solenoid.You need to attach the leads and THEN activate the switch and read the voltage across the terminals.12V would mean the solenoid is good because a voltage reading is a DIFFERENCE of electrical potential.If you have the leads attached and read 0V,there is no difference of electrical potential meaning there is actually 12V on both sides and the solenoid is not absorbing/using the power like it should be.If you simply read the 2 terminals on your battery it would read 12V,likely higher because a good battery will usually read close to 13V.A bad battery may read as high as 11.8V.As for the guages,it may also be that the battery is low if it has never been changed.The average life of an alkaline car battery is about 6 years.If yours was made and sold in 2000 like they like to do these days,the battery may have been changed once and is starting to be borderline.With the car off,no keys,nothing,read across your battery terminals and please let me know what you find. gmccarthy 86 hotmail

Trunk release switch does not work


1) check trunk fuse
2) check if there is voltage at the trunk latch and that you can hear the solenoid at the latch activate.
3) if voltage present and solenoid does activate. Try lubing the latch. May be binding.
4) voltage present, solenoid activates, latch lubed. trunck still does'nt open. replace solenoid

I can not open my trunk without useing the key


There is a lock solenoid in the trunk. You will need to check for power and ground at the solenoid while activating the switch.

2001 f250 won't shift into 4wd high using the dash panel button. can manually lock hubs. how do i diagnose whether the transfer case shift motor is actually getting power, or if the motor itself is...


you can use a test light to see if you are getting power to your shift actuator by unplugging actuator and testing for power at your wires while someone activates your switch,if you have power then should be a bad actuator.

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.

2002 toyota celica power door lock problem


Are you hearing any noises from the pass door when you activate the lock switch? If not, the power door lock solenoid has failed, and prob needs to be replaced. Pull the door panel & check to see if it is getting power to the solenoid in lock & unlock. If it has power, the solenoid is def bad.
