Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Lets start with the first problem, the trunk release: How did you find this problem? Is the external trunk release working?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Key release is working.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 9 months ago.

Ok, so it is just the pull release in the trunk...what happens when you try to pull it? Is there tension on it or does it feel floppy?

Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 9 months ago.

I'm sorry, are you referring to the pull handle in the trunk or to the push button inside? As I read the question, it seems that you are most likely referring to the button inside...

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Its push button. All started together with head lights going on and off with key (switch not working), Air bag sign on dash and heater not blowing.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 9 months ago.

All that happened together?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
yep. That's why I thought it was a fuse.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 9 months ago.

Wow, that sounds like a pain in the ... you know. So, please clarify the heater problem. Do you mean that the blower is not blowing air at all or that it is just not blowing hot air

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Not blowing at all. worked great up to this point. When I turn it over to AC you can hear the clutch engaging but does not blow. Nothing comes out.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 9 months ago.

Gotcha, thanks. Give me a moment to look over the wiring diagram for these systems

Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 9 months ago.

Check fuse f71 and f85 in the body control module fuse panel (the panel inside the car). The first should be a 10 amp fuse and the second a 7.5 amp fuse.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Checked all fuses, rechecked 71 & 85, they are good.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
