The cable on the underside of the body have bound up. The bind is most likely at the brackets where they attach to the levers under the body. I hope this helps! Please rate if so.

Have a good day!

I've had this problem also. I followed the instructions exactly and nothing happened. I troubleshot the issue and I realized that the clamp on to the door latch was not making a ground connection. Try touching the ground clamp directly to the head of one of the bolts on the door latch. This worked for me and the hood opened instantly. The quality of the ground connection seems to be the key. By the way, if you do not want to use a donor battery, a battery charger will provide sufficient power to release the hood latch. Good luck!

The trunk lock latch is in the lock position in the trunk and the key will not open the trunk in a 1994 pontiac grand am


Often,the trunk latch does not get lubricated enough(I can tell you from my dealer tech experience that places like Jiffy Lube NEVER service the body latches).Try pulling the release handle while some else "slaps" the trunk lid.This usually works on the hood,trunk,and remote fuel door release.I would see many Grand Ams that were only 2-3 years old with these problems.

Trunk will not open fuel door will not open all fuses ok


You have listed the vehicle is a 1987 Jaguar XJ6. The trunk is not electronic and only unlocks with the key as well as both the gas doors. Any issues here then it is your key or the actual trunk latch. If you do have a 1988 model year then the trunk lock has 3 positions. locked all the time, unlocked all the time or the vertical position locks and unlocks with the vehicles drivers door lock. If the trunk button (paddle) is loose and moves but nothing happens then the inside rod has come loose and you will have to manually operate the latch by removing the license plate and taking a long screw driver through the lower plastic bungs. The fuel flap is a separate unite and does have a manual release but you need to open the trunk to get to it. If the fuel flap stays locked all the time then the actually filler neck module will need replacing.If you have a 1997 which has the electronic release button to open the trunk (95-2003) Then you will need to firstly lock all door and unlock the drivers door 2 times. Check the fuel flap is now released, if not then the fuel flap actuator located on the filler neck inside the trunk is bad. If the trunk does not open with the remote, inside car switch and trunk mounted switch then the passenger side trunk harness is broken. Open the trunk with the key and on the right(passenger) hinge there is a grey plastic cover, remove that cover and carefully peel back the wiring harness cover and you will find 1 or more broken wires. Once the wires are repaired then I recommend you zip tie them in place and retest the trunk release button.If this does not answer any of your questions please feel free to email mejpseuro@gmail.com

My 1999 porsche boxter got wet inside. Now the lock on the driver side does not work. That means the front latch and trunk latch do not work. What can I do?


Have you tried locking/unlocking door with the key not the remote
If central locking is working ok this will release front/rear levers
You still need to get to the cause of the problem
If you have a local mechanic [dealer would cost a fortune] go to cannell.co.uk
In list click on manuals,here you can download full/part work shop manual
good luck barry

More than likely something is loose on the release latch. I had the same thing happen to my parking brake. You are going to need to drive it down to a shop. It should be a fairly quick fix.

I have a 1999 boxster. Everything works and runs fine except my trunk and hood latches were stuck in a lock position and would not unlock no matter how many times I tried to lock and unlock the door. So a...


The computer that controls the trunk and hood latches is under the seat, as you discovered. Unfortunately, this is not a good position to have a computer when moisture enters the car (to say the least). The Boxster being a convertible makes it especially susceptible to moisture problems here. I've seen the same trunk/hood latch problem, and it had to be reset by a dealer tech. Took about 3 minutes. I suspect your additional problem to be a) a wiring short when you did your microsurgery, or b) you activated the Boxster's anti-theft defense. Again, I suggest professional help. For the car  ;-).

Battery needs to be recharged after 3 days of sitting.


There is a slow drian being placed on the battery from one of the VW accessories installed on your bug. I had a very similar problem with my daughter's 1998 Beetle, and the cause was traced back to the hood latch. There's an electrical connection to the hood latch, and when the connection fails it places a slow drain on the battery. Although I'm not fully certain, I beleive the connection is part of the circuit that allows the security system to sense that the doors, hood and trunk are all closed.

I also had a problem with the electrical trunk release actuator, and had to have it replaced once. The remote key fob signals a the electrical actuator to open the trunk lid when the trunk release button on the key fob is pushed. If your trunk release operated normally, you probably do not have an electrical problem by your trunk.

About 60 percent certain you problem is located in your hood release circuit. An experience car nechanic should be able to test this circuit using a hand held electrical meter before it is removed and replaced.

Good luck. My daughter's bug has been acting normally ever since the latch was replaced about 2-3 years ago.

My Boxter battery is dead and I am not able open the trunk lid.


I have two Boxsters and have had to use this fuse box procedure on each. On the first car I followed the instructions in the manual and it worked perfectly. On the second car, I followed the identical procedure and nothing happened. After much fiddling, I realized that the clamp on to the door latch was not making a ground connection. Try touching the ground clamp directly to the head of one of the bolts on the door latch. This worked for me and the hood opened instantly. The quality of the ground connection seems to be the key. By the way, if you do not want to use a donor battery, a battery charger will provide sufficient power to release the hood latch. Good luck.
