The rear compartment lid release system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top cover actuator
• GMLAN serial data link
• Keyless entry transmitter
• Rear compartment lid ajar switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Rear compartment lid release switch
• Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
• Trunk fuses
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release System Operation
The rear compartment lid can be released by operating the rear compartment lid release switch or pressing the rear compartment lid release button on the keyless entry transmitter. When the rear compartment lid release switch is operated, the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is switched to ground. The BCM receives the rear compartment lid release switch input and applies ground to the trunk release relay control circuit. This energizes the trunk release relay coil, closing the switch side contacts, allowing battery voltage to be applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator and folding top cover actuator, releasing the buttresses and opening the rear compartment lid. Ground for the rear compartment lid release switch is provided at G300. The rear compartment lid ajar switch, rear compartment lid release actuator, and folding top cover actuator are provided ground at G301. The rear compartment lid will not release until the vehicle speed is zero and in park.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B3265 01 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Battery
DTC B3265 06 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Ground or Open

Do you know what a relay is an how it works ? TRUNK release relay located in the underhood fuse / relay box.

SOURCE: my trunk switch from inside wont open trunk

Yes, it has a fuse but I do not have a diagram unfortunately. Or it could be your indicator switch on the inside driver's side of the trunk. The remote will not work if the trunk is already open OR if the switch is bad/not contacting the stopper (at the base of the trunk) and falsley telling the PCM that the trunk is ajar. But if this were the problem, your should be getting a warning that your "trunk is ajar" from the onboard warning display on the guage cluster. The switch is cheesy...had to replace mine.

You likely need to disable the Valet security switch located on the left side of your glove box.

SOURCE: popping sound from near glove box in dash in 2008 Impala

This is the location of your BcM or Body control Mod. This controls all the things you are talking about. Lights, flashers,door locks trunk lock, that clicking you are hearing is a relay turning something on. So Lets say you are driving and it starts to get dark your BcM will change your driving lights to full night time mode, turning lights on, on your dash. Now you have Bright and dim functions. There is a sensor in the dash up front in the windshield that senses dark/light and does this. That is what you hear, a relay in your BcM clicking off/on some function of the car.

Looked at the fuses under the hood and by the glove box, and can't find the trunk release switch fuse. The trunk is continuously opening by itself and I want to pull the fuse.


There isn't one. It's controlled by the BCM. You have a shorted wire or the switch is bad. Pop the switch out and unplug it. If it still happens(shorted wire) open the trunk and pull the plug off the latch.

My valet mode in my Cadillac dts will not turn off. It's a 2006. Can't get to my music or my trunk won't open. Please help.


It may be the ALDL fuse in the underhood fuse block, so check that. If OK, it may be the trunk release relay in the fuse block under the rear seat - also check that.
If those are OK, the valet switch in the glove box may have failed in the open position. Remove the glove box and disconnect the wire connector from the switch; then jumper the two wires together. If that fixes the problem, replace the switch.

2007 hyundai azera trunk lock


I have a 2012 Azera and had the same trunk lock problem -- there is a security cutout switch located in the top center of the glove box opening which can be tripped if the glove box contents stick up over the lip of the opening. This switch disables the truck release on the dash and on the remote fob. On earlier Azera's the switch is located on the left side of the glovebox opening.

The trunk would not open on 00' Bonneville


Check the fuse labeled ALDL. It is in the fuse box under the back seat, it is a 10 amp fuse. I had the same problem and it was blown. I replaced it and the trunk now pops and the fuel door works too. I found this on one of the bonneville forums. Hope this helps.
