I'm at whits ends. This shouldn't be that hard to figure out, but I sure can't. I checked lots of other threads but none have difinitive answers other than replacing parts which I have done!
My trunk release won't release the trunk from either the key fob or the glovebox switch. You can hear the sender in the trunk click, and there is a small signal at the solenoid, but not enough. The solenoid works when I jump 12v to it directly and a new solenoid has the same problem as the original one.
Added to that, the pull down doesn't work! The motor works fine after I manually jumped 12v to motor it down. I replaced the switch with no difference. There's 12v at the red orange wire, but no power at the red, green or black. I tested the switch on the hood lid and it functions. The only other thing that doesn't seem to "work" is there is an open connection between the terminals on the key hole cover whether it is open or closed - I'm not sure how that relates to anything...
Meanwhile, I adjusted the pull down latch so it latches tightly the old fashioned way - a good slam!
Thanks in advance for your HELP! - Don
