It's either the button or actuator. Listen for a clicking sound when you press the button with trunk open. If you don't hear sound have a friend hook a multi meter up to the connection and set it to continuity and press button have friend listen for a beep it will be short if no beep replace button. If beep reconnect connection and perform the following press button and listen for sound if no sound replace actuator if sound close trunk and press button listen for sound if sound or no sound actuator is sticking.

    If sound is heard that means switch and electric part of actuator work. Check connection of actuator rod to trunk release could be broken or loose. The problem could also be that a piece in the actuator that activate trunk release is broken in which case you will need to replace actuator. Which is most likely the case. You could spray WD-40 into the trunk latch mechanism this will make it work better. If this fixes your problem great if not replace actuator.

    Thank you. Think I need to replace the actuator. I used wd40. Didn't help.

    Use a test light or volt meter an test for Voltage at the lock actuator when the button is pressed !

  • Jeff Armer May 27, 2017

    Plus the trunk release is controlled by the BCM - body control module !

  • Jeff Armer May 27, 2017

    Is there B+ voltage at the switch ? Check relay too !

  • Jeff Armer May 27, 2017

    If you can open it with a key , the electrical part of the actuator is no good , need a new one !

Trunk latch


Check in the glove box for a push button to open trunk. Also along the driver's side floor sill (between the seat and the door). Along the bottom of the dash on driver's side, check there too. My son has a '92 Lesabre, and there is no trunk release-only the key opens the trunk.

Open the trunk and check the wires near the right hinge. You'll probably have some cut wires that will need to get re-connected that go to your lights and trunk release.

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.
