Default Driver'* door trunk pop button

Anyone have a wiring schematic for where the trunk pop button switch wires run and terminate. I paid the dealer to fix it years ago but it never really worked right and i want to fix it myself so that i know its done right? Anybody have any experience with this?

EDIT** I have tried the button with the Valet switch in either position..nothing helps...

I will crack open my fsm when I get home, if no one else has replied by then.

the first thing I was thinking about when I read the topic was "valet switch"

I'd say bad switch or bad Trunk Release Relay

If you find it to be a bad switch let me know. I have a brand new one in the wrapper.

alright, right hand ip fuse box, fuse 2 (15A) , orange wire to relay "D" (same fuse box), blk/white wire out of relay goes to lid release actuator, then to ground. the other side is the ground start. Ground goes to the park/neutral switch, then to the lid release switch,(driver door) then to the valet switch, then to the relay mentioned above.


easy test would be to get access to the blue wire on the valet switch and put it to ground. trunk actuator should engage. if it doesn't, your looking at power (fuse 2), relay (D), or maybe even trunk lid actuator.

you could just pop the switch out, strip the wires, touch the wires together and it should pop if not, then wiring is probably broken somewhere.

sorry, I didn't catch that bit of info from the original post, yes, pop out the switch in the door and short the 2 wires together. shorting the door button still leaves the park/neutral and valet switch in circuit though, so keep that in mind. the circuit goes - ground, park/neutral, door, valet, relay.
