I want to get in the trunk from the backseat of my 2006 Saturn ion, how do I go about that?


You can fold either side of the rear seatback down for more cargo space.
To lower the rear seatback, follow these steps:

Open the trunk and pull one or both of the small handles located in the center of the trunk.
Once the handle is pulled, the seatback can be pushed open through the trunk, or pulled open from the inside of the vehicle.

Sorry ,but you need the trunk open ! What's wrong with your's ? loose your key . trunk release inside the vehicle doesn't work .
Luggage Compartment
Your best bet , have a qualified repair shop check it out . May have DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored .
DTC B3267: Trunk Release Output Circuit Low
DTC B3268: Trunk Release Output Circuit High

The rear compartment release circuit consists of the following:
• The intergrated body control module (IBCM) fuse
• The rear compartment lid release relay
• The rear compartment lid lock release actuator
• The rear compartment lid release switch
• The cargo lamp/trunk ajar switch
The rear compartment release circuit operates as follows. Battery positive voltage is applied at all times to the rear compartment lid release relay. The rear compartment lid release relay is energized by either depressing the rear compartment lid release switch, or when the IBCM receives a rear compartment release signal from a key fob. The IBCM then provides a path to ground on the rear compartment lid release relay control circuit, energizing the rear compartment lid release relay. When the rear compartment lid release relay is energized, battery positive voltage is supplied to the rear compartment lid lock release actuator causing the actuator to energize releasing the rear compartment lid. The rear compartment may be released with the dash mounted rear compartment release switch. The ignition must be in the OFF or ACCESSORY positions for the rear compartment to be released with a keyless entry transmitter fob (RFA). The rear compartment may also be released by an OnStar commanded using RFA functionality.

Locked out of trunk 2000 cadillac eldorado release button not working i removed lock on trunk still cant get in trunk


Pressing the rear compartment lid release switch provides an input signal to the instrument cluster. The instrument cluster sends a Class 2 serial data message to the body control module (PZM). The PZM grounds connector C6 of the rear compartment lid release solenoid through CKT 1344 (LT BLU) if the following conditions are present:
?€¢
The transaxle is in the PARK position.


?€¢
The valet lockout switch is closed.

Power is supplied through the following components to the now-grounded CKT 1344 (LT BLU):
?€¢
The RADIO/PHONE fuse


?€¢
CKT 40 (ORN)


?€¢
The coil of the rear compartment lid release relay
The relay coil energizes and closes the relay contacts.
Power is supplied from the CONVENIENCE fuse through the following components:
?€¢
CKT 2040 (ORN)


?€¢
The now-closed relay contacts


?€¢
CKT 56 (BLK/WHT)


?€¢
The rear compartment lid release solenoid
The solenoid energizes and the rear compartment lid latch assembly releases the rear compartment lid.

LID WON'T LOCK & LID LOCK LIGHT WON'T COME ON


I would suspect that your lid lock switch is faulty, or maybe it has come unplugged from the motor controller module. You can access this by removing the whole top moulding but I cannot remember now how to do this now. But it wasn't difficult. Hunt around and download a copy of the service manual and the IPB.

Aquasmart lid


Is the lid lock tang on lid broken.
2.9 Lid Lock
The Phase 7 Washer uses the same lid lock that is used on
the Phase 6 series 11 & 12 machines. The difference being is that the lid is now locked for the entire cycle. When the lid is locked the Lid Locked LED will illuminate. Once the spin
has completed, the lock will release and the lid can be
opened. To open the lid during the cycle the
START/PAUSE button must be pressed, the machine will
come to a halt, and the lid locked LED will extinguish.
If the lid is left open, the machine will be unable to lock the lid
and the cycle will be halted. The machine will play a tune
and the lid lock will flash until the lid is closed and START/PAUSE is pressed.
• If the lid-lock fails in the closed position, the locked lid can be forced upwards and out of the
lock. Note: This is the only time in which we would recommend doing this.
• If the harness is damaged, the complete lid lock assembly will need to be replaced.
If the power supply is cut during the spin cycle, the machine will keep the lid locked until the rotor has ceased to turn (3 to 10 secs). Only then will it release the lock. The motor is acting like a generator and allows the lock to stay energized under the bowls inertia.

My Sharp washing machine model es-s520p is always on auto-lock. so i forced the lid to open before it locks. now, my washing machine detects that its closed.. repeated blinking red lights on delicate...


the lid lock system was designed to really lock the lid during a 'spin mode operation to avoid accidents..pushing the on/off power botton usually releases the lock I can imagine that the lock/release solenoidis now 'jammed and it is best to replace it..you will have to open the top part of your washing machine to do that..2 visible screws on the sides and 2 hidden screws behind the rear portion of the top cover..be careful with this repair job electricity can kill people..good luck

The locked light is on but I am able to open the lid. It will not start


Hello barbarafreel,

Your machine type is a FAV6800A correct? If so I would try to recycle 120VAC power to the machine. Pull the washer power cord for 30 seconds then repower backup. Do you still have the Lid Lock LED lit? If so further trouble shooting is required. I would next have you go into Service Mode. Once in Service Mode we need to go Board Output Test on page 16 of the Service Manual I will summarize below.

Here is the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for your machine. Follow all safety warnings when working on the machine.

Let’s see if you can get into Service Mode, from the Service Manual slightly modified;

Enter Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys simultaneously for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Now look at page 16 of the service manual let’s see if you can with the Board Output Test function unlock and lock the Left and Right Lid Locks.

Now press the Delicates key.

The LED display should show ot and the Quick Wash led will be lit.

The Left and Right Lid Locks will lock.

Now press the Extra Rinse key pad.

A few seconds should elapse and the Whites led will go lit for a short duration then off and in a few seconds the Lid Locks should unlock. Do the Lid Locks unlock?

Now press the Colors / Jeans key pad again.

Do the Lid Locks lock?

Let me know what action took place and we will go from there.

You can get out of Service Mode by pressing Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys simultaneously or press the Off key.

What I suspect is one of the lid lock is not releasing completely which moves a slide switch in the lid lock to signal the control board that the Lid is Unlocked and the Lid is Locked.

If you still have the issue I would release the washer top form the base and unplug the Right Lid Lock and see if that right lid lock is signaling incorrectly and possibly causing the issue. The Service Manual will show you how to release the washer top from the base. The left lid lock because of its dual signaling function “the Lid is Open/the Lid is Closed” and “the Lid is Locked/the Lid is Unlocked” can’t simply be unplugged. If you pull the Left Hand Lid Lock plug you will show a OP or OD error from the Control Board. If you are up for the troubleshooting I will help you proceed further.

Only the Left Lid Lock assembly needs to be plugged in for the washer to work as designed. I removed my Right Lid Lock a year ago and would never spend the money to replace it my choice.

2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold


you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

Lock light wont turn off


Hello shon95m,
Glad to hear you did some troubleshooting on the first go around of your issue, we need to do some more. I haven’t experienced this issue but will troubleshoot with you if you can tolerate the down time. I will be doing this from the schematic of the machine. In this condition with the Locked LED lit are the Lid Locks actuated not releasing the lid to open? I know you know how to release the washer top from the washer base. Can you get into Service Mode in this failure condition?
First I would try the first two bullet points on page 13 of the SM for Will Not Unlock. I think you may have it, if not here are a couple of links to support troubleshooting efforts; Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
If that produces no results I would next pull the right lid lock off and leave it off it’s not necessary for normal washer operation and we need to reduce the failure points for fault isolation causing the lid lock circuit to remain lit.
Pull washer power plug first then pull the right lid lock off and leave it off. With the right lid lock plug pulled power up the machine does the Locked LED remain lit?
Repeat the step for the left lid lock after machine power up dose the Locked LED remain lit?
The “Lid Is Locked” inputs to the control board are in parallel from the left and right lid locks. From the schematic it looks like when the lid is locked +12VDC is connected thru the left and right lid locks to the input of the control board via Pin 8 of connector P3 marked on the schematic as “Lid Is Locked” input to the control board. From the schematic it looks to me that +12VDC signals the control board that the lid has successfully locked. So what is causing the Lock LED on the console? If it’s not caused by +12VDC switched to the input of the control board marked “Lid is Locked” from the left lid lock then I feel the control board has failed at component level causing this issue, but that is a WAG right now. The SM also speaks to a possible Motor Controller board as a possible fail point. If the Lock LED goes out when we pull the plug on the left lid lock then we need to open up that left lid lock and inspect for a possible corrosion paths at the plug or the left lid lock. See pic below of some nasty corrosion that can cause issues with the left lid lock assembly. Maybe we can get some other forum members to offer some additional support. I will continue to help until I hit a brick wall in troubleshooting or you need to move on. Rich

Display error code of Lr on control panel


L means "Lid or Door Lock" problem
r probably means 'release' I couldn't find it anywhere... so I'd guess that Lr means the machine did not detect that the Lid Lock released and cycle end (which means either the sensor is bad or the Lid Lock dosen't lock the Lid).

Either way, something with the Lid Lock system ais not right. Be glad it releases ;-)
