Trunk won’t open from release button on dash, key fob or by trunk key. Spinning sounds electric..
A Customer brought in their Park Ave because their significant other severely screwed up the tune up after having a issue with frozen fuel lines. I recommended dry gas, they put it in then the plenum managed to literally explode after a bad backfire. (Before I was involved) The plenum was replaced as well as the intake gasket, then the #3 and #4 Injectors stopped firing. Apparently it turned into a hash match and 3 days later new front plugs, #3 Injector, Plenum, Gaskets, and Fuel pump were put in. They also managed to COMPELETELY screw up the plug wire firing order and after I fixed that it still runs rough. I put a noid tester on all the pigtails which they all passed, and even swapped out the one injector yet it still doesn't want to engage until the car's been redlined under load and THEN It'll fire until it's restarted. I haven't been able to do a impedance test since can't find the proper resistance anywhere to what the injector should be firing to.
All will light up the numbers will appear but nothing will not come out. No heat or air

When I purchased the car the car dealership could not find the key so they had a locksmith come out and rekey it. Now the rekeyed key has been lost but the original key was found. When put the key in it turns on and lights and radio work but will not crank the car. Is there something I can do to get the key to work again to start the car without having to call a locksmith?
The dark shading has "peeled" away.
My dash lights blink from dim to bright every so often and my DIC memory vehicle personalization is no longer working, on the passenger side only parts of the elect. seat works, and some time the car stall when I first try to start, Also my ac/heater fan is not working. Is there any way this is all related? Or at least some of it for this just started and seams like all at the same time.
Sounds like I'm being hit from the back when shifting into gears. When going up a hill from stop car slowly and roughly chugs up the hill with the gas pedal almost to the floor. It seems like it drives alright when the car has just been turned on and then maybe 30 minutes or so the transmission starts to bang into each gear.
