Question about 2005 Nissan 350Z

3 Answers

The trunk latch on my 2005 350Z sticks sometimes and does not fully unlatch. I use the remote and after about five times it will open properly. I tried spraying WD-40 on the latch and it did not help. Rodney

Adding new oil on old sticky oil is not helpful. I would clean the mechanism with brake parts cleaner, let it dry, then re-lube with white lithium spray grease.

Does not open all the way ? Gets stuck on a 2nd latch ? You will have to perform the "Penny Trick" and get 6 Half inch 1/2" Rubber Washers. look the trick up on google for info.

Look closely to see if anything was dropped or anything heavy placed on the latch. It may be bent ever so little. If not then your servo is losing its value and will have to be replaced.
I hope my suggestions helps and all the luck to you.

I have G6 convertible sensor "top not secure" warning on panel. However secure and working. The hard top just stopped opening. Please advise Deborah


Before taking this problem to the dealer, you might check this quick fix. I had the same problem on my 2007 Pontiac G6 Gt Convertible, and just resolved it.
First, you can access your trunk by disconnecting, and then reconnecting your negative battery terminal-this clears the safety code momentarily allowing the trunk to be opened using your trunk release button.
After you have the trunk open, check the wiring harness located in the top right corner of the trunk lid where the hinge is attached to the trunk lid. My wiring harness had come loose, allowing a wire to get stuck in the hinge, resulting in a cut wire-it was a red one. I spliced the wire back together, taped it up with electrical tape, and then secured the harness to the hinge assembly so wires couldn't come loose again. The problem resolved immediately with no further issues. Good luck.

Trunk will not close


check that latch is releasing when using remote. remote uses a cable to pull latch and cable may need to be lubed causing the latch to stick open. Let me guess if you slam a couple times it will latch, lube the actuator cable and latch well. hope this helps

AUTO TRUNK LID DOES NOT FULLY CLOSE


adjust the latch so that the catch will lock over properly. You may need to use a round bar ( screwdriver blade ) Place it under the latch and while pressing on the release button pull the latch out to the open position. The latch may be 1/2 closed before the boot is put down and the latch will not go any further

My trunk is stuck closed, Its not the remote it is the latch.. What can I do to get my trash out of the trunk and to make sure this doesn't happen again?


DO YOUR REAR SEAT LAY DOWN? IF SO YOU CAN GET IN THE TRUNK AND EMPTY IT OUT AND USE A LIGHT TO SEE IF SOMETHING IS CAUGHT IN THE LATCH...NOT SURE IF YOURS IS NEW ENOUGH TO HAVE A RELEASE INSIDE THE TRUNK BUT MAY HELP YOU OPEN IT

Trunk will not open when button on keyless remote is pressed


Then you probably have a sticking trunk latch, a weak/partially shorted trunk latch actuator, or high resistance in the trunk latch actuator circuit.

Has anyone else had trouble with the trunk latch on their Volvo S40 2005?


A problem I had with my 2003 BMW was that the wiring near the trunk hinge that feeds the lock mechanism had been bent back and forth enough times (I open my trunk several times a day) that some of the wires broke. The only way I could get in the trunk was by the mechanical key. The fob and the button release in the cabin did not work. I was able to access enough wiring before and after the hinge area to do a continuity check on the wires and at least a quarter of them had broken. Later I realized that the third center brake light (which is on the trunk lid) was out too. After some patience of unraveling all the wiring I was able to reconnect everything ... but it took several hours....
In your case I do not understand that your latch will not open. Usually if it is set in the lock position when open ... you can stick a screw driver in the mechanism and rotate back the engaging hook which then stays in the open position until you close the trunk again.
If that is not the case with yours, then the mechanism may indeed be toast.
Helpful?

My 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited convertible has a problem with the trunk latch. It won't stay closed. It keeps unlatching. Do you know what the problem is? How do I get it to stop unlatching?


I did this to my car once. Be sure the latch isn't closed as you are trying to close the trunk. With the trunk open pop the trunk once, then see if the trunk latches properly.

2003 VW Jetta trunk does not open


most likely cause is latch cover plastic has broken and got lodged in the latch mechanism. now the fun part, fold down back seat , slide into trunk with a phillips screwdriver a flashlight and a large strait blade screwdriver, once in trunk remove trunk cover, then with strait blade unlatch the trunk. once lid is open remove latch and take out broken plastic to free up latch and reinstall then retest before closing trunk.
