Can not open trunk on a pontiac soltice. No clicking sound from remote or switch in glove box fuses are ok


The rear compartment lid release system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top cover actuator
• GMLAN serial data link
• Keyless entry transmitter
• Rear compartment lid ajar switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Rear compartment lid release switch
• Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
• Trunk fuses
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release System Operation
The rear compartment lid can be released by operating the rear compartment lid release switch or pressing the rear compartment lid release button on the keyless entry transmitter. When the rear compartment lid release switch is operated, the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is switched to ground. The BCM receives the rear compartment lid release switch input and applies ground to the trunk release relay control circuit. This energizes the trunk release relay coil, closing the switch side contacts, allowing battery voltage to be applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator and folding top cover actuator, releasing the buttresses and opening the rear compartment lid. Ground for the rear compartment lid release switch is provided at G300. The rear compartment lid ajar switch, rear compartment lid release actuator, and folding top cover actuator are provided ground at G301. The rear compartment lid will not release until the vehicle speed is zero and in park.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B3265 01 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Battery
DTC B3265 06 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Ground or Open

Do you know what a relay is an how it works ? TRUNK release relay located in the underhood fuse / relay box.

Tip

Cleaning battery contacts to keep your laptops, portable dvd players, etc...


Cleaning battery contacts is an important general maintenance procedure and should be done about every 6 months. The following are some reasons why you should keep battery contacts clean. The steps provided in this tutorial applies to any battery operated device.

1. Cleaning the contacts keep the devices that use the batteries working properly.

2. Keeping the terminals/posts and contacts clean from corrosion can help extend the life of the battery, especially rechargeable ones.

3. Keeping the contacts clean will save you a lot of time and money in the long run.

Battery contacts come in different shapes, sizes, configurations, and are made from different materials. The following picture shows you some examples:

Example of a spring end of a battery contact:

Keeping rechargeable batteries and the contacts clean can extend the life expectancy of the batteries and keeps the device operating properly. The following is a chart that demonstrates the life expectancy for lithium-ion rechargeable batteries commonly used in laptops:

Picture of a laptop battery and it's contacts:

If batteries and the contacts become dirty or build up corrosion, the battery can no longer make a proper contact. This causes the battery to loose their charge faster and also prevent the device from receiving the proper voltage and prevent it from operating properly.

You can purchase products to help clean the batteries or contacts. The following shows you some examples of a battery cleaning product and a battery contact cleaning pencil. You can actually use a regular pencil eraser to clean battery contacts if you want.

Cleaning steps:

1. Make sure you have the proper tools you might need to access the batteries or contacts. Wearing gloves and eye protection is always a good safety precaution when handling batteries.

2. Make sure you have a flat, clean surface to work on with adequate lighting.

3. Remove the device cover to the battery compartment and remove the battery.

4. Check the batteries for burnt spots, leaking, bulging, cracks or breaks. If you see any of these, discard the battery because it will need to be completely replaced. These are indications that the battery is no longer serviceable and failure is imminent.

5. Check the contacts for any signs of damage such as breaks in the metal, broken springs (if applicable), etc. If any damage is found, replace the contacts before continuing to use the device.

6. Using the pencil eraser end, clean the tops and bottoms of the batteries (or if you have purchase a special battery cleaning product, follow the directions).

7. Next, tilt the device you are cleaning (if possible) so that any debris will not fall further into the device. Take the pencil and clean the contacts in an outward motion to help sweep dirt, corrosion, etc away from the device. You can use a small keyboard vacuum to help clean the inside of the battery compartment also.

8. If the pencil eraser is not cleaning the contacts due to large amounts of corrosion, you can use a small piece of metal (this should be the last resort). You gently scrape away any corrosion or packed on debris from the contacts. Exercise extreme caution to not damage the contacts by severely scratching or breaking them.

9. If you are cleaning a 12 volt car battery, you can apply the same measures as mentioned. If you are having trouble removing debris, you can use a wire brush to gently remove it.

10. You can now replace the batteries into the compartment and replace the device cover.

CAUTION: It is not advisable to use chemical cleaning solutions on batteries.

Following these steps and regular preventative maintenance on your batteries and device can help ensure a longer life expectancy for the batteries and longer use of your product.

Rear Compartment Lid
The rear compartment lid can be opened by operating the rear compartment lid release switch, located on the instrument panel, or by using the manual release located on the rear compartment lid. Battery voltage is supplied to the rear compartment lid release relay through the Main Power fuse. The roof and door module (RDM) receives the rear compartment lid release request via the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit. The RDM grounds the rear compartment lid release relay coil when a release input is received through the instrument panel (I/P) switch. Grounding the coil causes the rear compartment lid release relay to energize, providing power to the rear compartment lid latch assembly through the rear compartment lid release actuator supply voltage circuit.
As an alternate method of operating the rear compartment, an emergency release handle is accessible from within the rear compartment. When the handle is slightly pulled, it will provide a ground for the bed cover release relay which will cause the actuator to operate and open the rear compartment lid. If the handle is pulled further, it will mechanically open the lid, so even if the battery is discharged or there is an electrical concern, the emergency release handle will mechanically open the lid.

You have to clean the contacts that touch the battery with a metal screwdriver, rub them until the metal shines.

Will not power up, even with fresh batteries


You may have a more serious problem that will require professional repair, but the problem that you describe may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Canon s5 is it will not power up


OK, since I'm an engineer I couldnt resist the temptation to open up the beast for more than 5 minutes so I opened it up to see what's inside (I can't recommend this due to the small screws any tiny delicate connectors inside). Along the way I discovered and fixed the problem.

As is typical for broken appliances usually the primary method for succesful repair is: open, vacuum clean, close. And otherwise see what happens along the way.

What I found in my case is very simple: when I close the battery compartment latch you are supposed to hear two sort of "clicking" sounds. The first one is a obvious one which happens when the plastic of the lid snaps into the plastic latches on the camera body, it is a clearly audible plastic-on-plastic like clicking sound. The second clicking sound, which was the missing link to make my camera work, is a higher pitched, lower volume, metal spring like snapping sound. I don't know where that latch occurs but it only happens when I push the plastic lid all the way in even after it seems it is already fully secure. Without that second metal-like click my camera won't power on. I can reproduce the problem by closing the battery lid but not to the point of the second "click".

So my simple solution is, push or jam your battery lid all the way in until you hear the metal-spring like clicking sound. Worked for me, hopefully works for you too.

My camera will not work


This may or may not apply to your case, but I read a few other articles in this area that mentioned battery type and quality. My ViviCam 3915 stopped working suddenly as well even though the batteries I was trying were showing 1.5+ volts using a multimeter. These were all name brand (like Panasonic, IKEA, Toshiba) but cheaper quality - I tried some higher quality Duracell Ultra batteries and it turned on just fine.

The main reason for this problem is the design of the contact plates for the batteries terminals. From inside of the battery compartment lid, you can find two tiny prong shape metal spring. One has small pieces of plastic guides for holding the positive terminal in place. The problem can develope pretty early, depends on how often you open the lid. That spring like metal piece is too delicate to be shifted out of place, even just a very, very slight shft can rest the tiny plastic pieces at the tip of the prong to rest on top of the battery terminal. Using some kind of batteries with bigger, or not too round terminals can contribute to the same problem, even the metal prongs are not shifted. Solution: Check the available batteries that you have, and use those with smaller terminal tips to power the camera. If still not turning on, then the prong(s) might be shifted a little bit. It is hard to check if the prong tips are fully in contact with the battery terminals, because after you push down the lid, it needs to be pushed in to lock. So you can only see they are good in contact before fully pressed down and pushed in. One of the best way is to use some kind of tools to remove the tiny plastic pieces at the tip, but make sure the prong tips still be able to get in contact with the terminals. I, myself just remove the two spring prongs and cut a piece of copper (the old metal tie for electric wiring) a bit longer then the inner length of the lid across, bent the copper strip slightly and sit it on top of the metal door glider. Press down to ensure the ends of the coppper strip touch and stay firm to both inner ledges of the lid. Now, before closing the lid. Cut a piece of plastic (from a ziploc bag) to a size that fits to be slided between the copper strip and the metal door glider. This forms a isolation between the two meatl pieces, the reason is the rubbing of the two metal pieces, if in contact, can cause the batteries installed to be drained faster than to power up the camera itself. This is important, or you will have a new problem with the camera. Finally, as long as you know what you want to do is to ensure a good contact of the prongs and the terminals. You may fine tune and use some other materials to achieve the goal. Your camera might have a different fault developed other than the above findings of mine that is the cause of not powering up. Good luck, Paul
