First, please read this article: Where's The Fuse?

Then to answer your question...There are actually 3 fuses involved...
Your trunk release is controlled by the Theft Deterrent And Door Lock ECU. The three fuses that can affect your trunk release are:

1. ECU-IG fuse (15 Amp)
2. CIG fuse (15 Amp)
3. POWER fuse (30 Amp)

These are all located in Junction Block #1 on the left side of the dash.
If any of these fuses are blown, there will be a bunch of other stuff also not working.

Trunk on my malibu keeps clicking to open with no one around or touching anything. what to do


Step 1:

The year of your Malibu should not matter.

Step 2:

Locate the electrical fuse panel inside the passenger compartment. It should be located behind a plastic panel (kick panel) to the left of the drivers feet or to the right of the front passengers feet.

Step 3:

If you have your cars factory Owners Manual, it can assist you in locating the fuse panel. Once you have located the fuse panel and have removed the plastic cover, read the sticker that is attached to the back of the fuse panel cover. It should show you which fuse is associated with the trunk lock or trunk latch.

Step 4:

If this fuse is found, remove the fuse and determine if the trunk latch has stopped clicking. If you can not find the responsible fuse, you can do the following-

Step 5:

You can pull one fuse at a time until you find the one for the trunk latch (remember, a fuse often is responsible for more than one circuit), or

Step 6:

You can locate the back side of the in-cabin trunk switch, disconnect the connector that attaches to the switch and see if that stops the involuntary activation of the switch. If it does stop, you can safely conclude that the switch that you push to open the trunk will need to be replaced.

Where is the fuse for the trunk latch?


There is no fuse as there is no power to it. It's a cable. If it is sticking you may want to oil it, latch. It may be just stuck.

Trunk release button on 2001 ford focus will not work


So your trunk release button on the dash dpesn't seem to open the trunk.
Does your key fob button open the trunk? yes....then could be problem with switch but read on.
no......are your power door locks not working as well. not working.....check
fuse, on 2001 Focus the fuse is a 20amp number 63 on the back of the fuse panel under the dash. Pop cover off and undue the rwo screws. hold plastic retainers and pull off the fuse panel from metal frame. pull fuse panel down toand turn over so you can see the fuse.check fuse. blown? yes.......replace fuse with good one. test all door locks open/close then check fuse...if its blown the problem is something to do with the door lock circuits. if the fuse is still ok...try pushing the trunk open button. fuse still ok? then I am a loss toas to whats the problem but if the fiuse blew when trying the trunk button your problem is the trunk latch circuit.
Now if the trunk latch button is popping the fuse then disconnect wiring to
trunk latch (in trunk) and try the button again. Still blowing the it is the electrical before the trunk latch unit. If it did now blow the problem is something to do with the part of the circuit you disconnected.
How to go farther and find the problem exactly is not covered in this answer. You have to take it from here. JAG

2003 VW Passat wagon, trunk alarm keeps indicating the luggage compartment is open and alarm goes off. Many dealer attempts to fix have failed. Is there a specific fuse for the trunk latch/alarm?


Hi

You have to replace the latch of your trunk. The contact is in the latch and most of the time you have to change the wire and the connector because they are oxided and make a resistance.

If I remember well you cannot remove any fuse to solve your problem because the fuse will affect some interior lamps and door lock system.

I had the same problem on a VW Golf

Gas latch and trunk release fuse location


The Gas latch and trunk release fuse location is by your left foot on the drivers side of the vehicle. You will pull off a small plastic panel then open the door to the fuse box. The fuse is a 15 amp mini. Hope this helps

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
