Hello all,

Does anyone have any ideas on how to go about troubleshooting the remote trunk release on a 1996 3.5 RL Premium package. It simply stopped working after years of faithful service. Should I remove the door panel first or is there some way to determine exactly where the fault lies? Everything else seems to be working fine.

Thanks for any help.

I would first check to see if the solenoid in the back is getting the signal from the switch in the door.

Does your remote still pop the trunk? If so then it sounds like you just lost power/ground/ or have an open circuit in the car.

I'm unfamilliar with the RL, but earlier Legends have a valet switch for the trunk release inside the glove compartment. This switch disables the trunk release button on the door. I do believe that the RL has this too, and would check that first.
