Park Avenue Electrical Questions
I have a 1998 Buick Park Avenue. It has had a power drain when the car is off for some time now. I had it isolated to the power line that goes across the "Battery 2" Fuse. On a mechanic'* recommendation, I disconnected the front power seats. That seemed to get rid of most of the drain.
1) Now, however, everything quit working on the Battery 2 line. I assumed the fuse had blown, but it'* still good. So I put a meter on the line in place of the fuse. No power is crossing it at all. Any ideas?
2) That line isn't such a bit loss anyway, except for the trunk. I really need the truck, but the power trunk button is on that line. I would just open it with the key, but my key has never gone in the trunk lock since I bought the car. It'* the right key, and fits in other Park Avenue trunks, but won't even slide into mine! I suspected a broken off key, but I can put a small nail in the entire length of the key. What could this be? Frozen tumblers?
3) Any other ways to get the trunk open? I couldn't find an emergency release anywhere (where it would open from the inside). If I knew how much power to put on it, and what wires to put it on, I'd jumpstart it like that. Any help?
4) Ok, now the easy one (I hope). How do I clear the warnings in the car? I just changed the oil and aired the tires, but it'* still telling me to check my tire pressure and change my oil!
