The did away with the central locking module. It's all built into the BCM now. That small motor is a solenoid, that's probably your problem. It only takes a moment of charge to open it.

How to open boot on volvo s40 manually

It depends on how old your Volvo is. Some of the older models have a hidden key slot near the release button. Newer models don't have an emergency release.
You can unscrew the four bolts under the outside boot trim with a T25 torx screwdriver. This gives you access to the wiring for the switch. You can use a multimeter to test if there is a power supply to the connector. If there is power and using a replacement switch, (usually cheap to buy), connect it to the wiring plug and press the release button to test.
If this doesn't fix the problem or there is no power you will need to drop the rear seats and remove the inside trim panel. You may have to damage it to get it off. Once it is off you should be able to unbolt the latch from the body panel, opening the boot lid with the latch still in the locked position.
Check all the wiring points including the covered sleeve where it leaves the body panel and enters the boot lid. This point sometimes 'nips' the wires breaking any power supply to the boot release. Damaged wires here will need replacing by a good auto electrician.

Boot wont open with key fob

Try standing at the rear of the vehicle, putting the fob against your temple and activating it... This realy works!
Replace the battery in the fob.
If all else fails buy a new one from the manufacturers.

Nissan sentra 2006 My trunk wont open && I spent 2 1/2 hrs trying to break in from the back seats. trying to reach the seat release but cant. The key or remote wont open it. The car latch wont open...

does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.

Power hatch release quit working

Most likely the latch itself went bad. You can disconect it at the connector and have someone work the latch, while you check it with a 12 volt tester to see if the power is coming back to the latch. If it is, the latch will need to be replaced.

Ford focus boot lock will not open using key in lock or key remote. Front panel button has not worked for a long while. The boot opens to about an inch on the latch. Is there anything I can do to release...

try spraying some lithium grease into the latch assembly... Since your latch is releasing the primary catch point and not the secondary, it means the latch itself still works... After using the grease and letting it soak for a few mins, close the trunk and pop it several times and hope it fully releases. If not, you could try putting pressure on the trunk by pulling it open as the key is turned. Don't use WD-40

Latch problem

My wife did the same thing to my truck. I am a bodyman so I know your problem. The Latch mech that is held by the 3 screws you mentioned needs to be replaced. The release leaver that engages your door strycker is not returning to the correct position when you press the door button. the inside door leaver activates the mech from a different position and has more throw so it often releases. Unfortunately the latch is very expensive at least I think so!
it is a bit complicated to exchange so get someone who has done it a few times... not much room in there to connect the leavers. Phil

Car trunk problem

Open the boot with the key and ask someone to activate the lever while you have a look on the latch in the boot. You should see the cable moving if not, it might be broken or just disconnected.

No pulse at injectors

The normal way that injectors are controlled is via the permanent application (ignition on obviously) to one side of the coil that operates the enclosed piston, and the precisely timed application of ground (negative) to the other side of the coil. The transistors that control this switching under the command of the engine computer are typically contained within the computer itself. Measuring the voltage at the injectors is not productive since the common multimeter is incapable of detecting the very short pulses that activate the coil. Some kind of visual means would be needed to observe this pulse such as an oscilloscope or an engine analyzer equipped with a 'scope.
It's unlikely that all of the switching transistors (or the injectors) have failed simultaneously so either the computer has a problem or there is no fuel being delivered to the fuel rail that feeds the injectors. You should find a pressure regulator that sits between the fuel line coming from the tank that controls the fuel pressure for the injectors. This device seem to be a sore point in many vehicles and can make it appear that the injectors are not working. Many fuel rails have a fitting similar to a tire valve to allow the testing of the pressure being delivered. I would recommend you check this before assuming that the injectors are at fault.
