I have a 1997 hand me down Olds Aurora. The trunk switch

Customer Question

I have a 1997 hand me down Olds Aurora. The trunk switch inside and on the remote does not work. The key does. Also, the fuel switch inside sticks and will not pop the door. Any suggestions?

The fuel switch you can take out and try to spray electrical cleaner and see if that works if not , you just have to replace it

on the trunk issue , have you checked all interior fuses in the fuse box ?

if the fuse are good , the trunk motor latch actuator could have went bad .

when you say it doesn't work with remote like you cant pop it open with remote , how about the other function of the remote are the working like the lock & unlock ?

please let me know

Thank You

1-you need to check all fuses in the inside compartment

2- check with a test light are you getting power on one of the wires on the rear trunk actuator lock, i sent you a diagram

3- the is a relay call er the RAP relay , i sent you a diagram for it also

if the fuses are good , relay is good , and you are getting power to trunk actuator on one wire and when you press the inside switch you getting a ground on the other wire and the trunk want release then change the trunk actuator
