How do i get into the trunk on my 2003 grandam with no key and my trunk button on my door doesnt work


Voltage is applied at all times through the TRUNK REL/RFA fuse to the rear compartment lid release switch and the switch side of the rear compartment lid release relay. When the release switch is pressed, the following actions occur:
• The switch closes.
• Voltage is applied to the coil side of the rear compartment lid release relay.
When the transaxle is in PARK or NEUTRAL, the rear compartment lid release relay is grounded through the transaxle range switch. With the coil side of the relay energized, the relay contacts close, applying voltage to the rear compartment lid release motor.
If the vehicle is equipped with remote entry, the switch operation is the same, except when the contacts in the rear compartment lid release relay close, voltage is applied through the normally closed contacts of the remote control door lock receiver. This action occurs in order to apply voltage to the rear compartment lid release motor.

Can you check fuse's , relay ? Both are located in the left insturment panel fuse box . Fuse Block - Left I/P
On the left side of the I/P
you need to open the drivers door to get to it ,on very end of the insturment panel .
Do you know anything about relay's , how they work ? If you pull the relay out of the fuse box an look on the bottom you will see four set's of numbers . 30 & 87 . if you took a piece of wire an jumped were this pins plug into the fuse box the trunk would open . provided there is B+ voltage at pin 30 .
There are videos on youtube showing how to test relays and their circuits .

Michael Pryor I got a dryer model number.WED7500VW, is not turning on door switch onewire Was burn....


The door switch activates when the dryer door is closed. On most dryers, the door switch makes an audible clicking sound when it activates. To determine if the door switch is working, try starting your dryer and then listen for the "click." If the door switch makes a clicking sound, it is probably not defective. If you don't hear a click, use a multimeter to use the door switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Kitchenaid dryer model kgys750jq0 wont start


The door switch is located near the dryer door and is activated when the door is closed. If the door switch fails, the dryer won't start at all. Many types of door switch will make an audible click when they are activated. If the door switch makes a clicking sound when activated it is probably not defective. If it doesn't make a click, it can be checked with an ohm meter or continuity checker. The door switch is relatively easy to replace and is usually not very expensive. Here is the switch to order if it is bad.

The thermal fuse helps to prevent a dryer fire by shutting off power to the dryer if it overheats. If the dryer won't start check this fuse first. Test the thermal fuse with an ohm meter or continuity checker. This is the most common part to fail when the dryer won't start. Once the thermal fuse has blown, it has to be replaced. It can not be reset. Here is the fuse to order in case it is bad.


Post back your findings and I will post the repair video for the repair.

Does a 2002 Toyota RAV4 have a relay for window motor? This car is one of the cheap-material-made junk one ever buys, it took Toyota years to finally recall transmission problem on sears of 2001-2003 more...


Hi, there is only one relay for all of the windows, so that is not the problem. The likely problem is the switch. I recommend you test the switch using an ohmmeter.
In the case of the door lock, that problem may be a failed lock motor. I recommend you apply power directly to the lock motor to see if it works. If it does, check the switch. If not, replace the motor.

Hi, When closing the driver's side door, the door


The obvious choice is the cheapest. Somewhere in the door jamb is a small push button switch which either closes opens a circuit when the door is closed. That state is relayed to the computer which turns the interior lights and the door ajar system on or off . The switch generally either screws or snaps in. So as a first step I would get another switch and replace it. If it still does not work then I think the fault lies in the computer, however it is a VW and I have been wrong before.
