    I have not had this problem fixed. I was wondering if anyone out there had the same problem. I can't get the trunk to open using the key or the remote.

    Dash pot came apart in trunk lid. I was able to remove it and secure together with chicken bands and re install, and it works fine now.

  • From experience, this should not be a problem. I am just writing a solution. It depend on the lock position of your trunk. Insert the small key facing your chest, and rotate it 180 degree and stop right there. Lower the trunk slowly and let it lock automatically. Then open the trunk by using the command in the Driver's door and it should open. As soon as it is opening from the Driver's door command, then it will definitely open using the remote key-less control. There is no parts to purchase at all and I have done several cars.
