When I pulled it up to look inside I hear something snap when I pressed the release button. I don't know what it was but it worked since then. Put it back together and tested it. Screwed it back in and tested it.
So I assume it was just stuck on the cover in some way. I may have broken it somehow but it works perfectly! So if nothing else works from what you have read... open the truck latch module press the button and close it up... hopefully that works for ya!
Nightdevil: am also having trunk lock issues and would be interested to hear more about the "snap" and what you did to get the lock working again.
My lock was not locking. When I use the remote trunk button I do hear the actuator doing something but it won't lock. I can't lock it with the key either.
I removed the lock/actuator assembly and saw the spring had broken. Repaired and re-installed the spring. But still no luck getting the lock to work.
I am not sure what the 4 latches are that you are referring to.
Was the snap just the spring mechanism pulling the lock?
I am debating whether I need to spend $125 for a new lock/actuator assembly or I am not "resetting" the lock properly.
