  1. Trunk won't open by hand. Only by key/door button

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I can't get the trunk to open by holding the handle. I can use my key, and the button at the door. I've gone through settings with the T2 and nothing. And before you say the trunk handle itself is bad, I replaced it with a BRAND NEW 2012 GRIFFIN one. Neither the old or the new change the...

    Tech II Workshop
    I have a 2004 9-3 convertible with 130k miles. I've had this car for a few months and haven't had any sort of issues until yesterday.

  5. Trunk Popping Open by Itself Occasionally

    9-5 Workshop
    Has anyone experienced trunk popping at random? Or any suggestions on where to look for troubleshooting? Is there an open/closed/resistance sensor I can check? Or a relay? Wife is claiming fob button is NOT being pressed in pocket or purse, but I'm not entirely convinced.

  14. Trunk lock not working correctly

    9-5 Workshop
    All of a sudden, a few mornings ago, my trunk wouldn't open. I have tried both the button on the key fob and the one on the door. For now I've had to resort to using a rope on the emergency handle through the armrest opening. My first thought was that the wiring had frayed again, since I've...
