The trunk doesnt open and top wont go down already tried the S69/10 ground but no go - all windows roll down and thats about it

can I ground S69/12 ? is there a DIY or color code?

There is some oil leaking from Top / windshield hydraulic cylinder so Ive tried to open the lock manually with a hex key I can push the Top out of the lock but there is no point because the trunk is stuck


at this point I need to get the Trunk open somehow

the keyhole / push button doesnt do anything and the key doesnt turn

The car doesnt lock / unlock with the remote either -the lights blink probably cause of the trunk

what are my choices? I've read about drilling a hole behind the license but what am I looking for?

really need to resolve

thanks

I have checked all fuses possible - but which one control's the PSE ill double check.

I tried Wd40 into the trunk lock but the key doesnt turn eitherways

When I press the lock /unlock button on the remote the turn signal lights flash / Dome light goes on/off (3secs) as usual but the car doesnt lock/unlock.

Locking the drivers side door with key only locks that door and not the passenger side. looks like the Pump to me.

but the question comes back how can I open the trunk to get access to everything

There is a small accsess panel located on the drivers side of the dash, ( open door to see panel) remove the panel and look for the 20a fues or just read the card if there is one guled to the back side of the panel.

Do you see one for the PSE? If you have a new one replace it, i had this issue over the summer and what looked like a good fuse turned out to be bad. If your problem is not solved by replacing that fuse then you can at least cross that off the list of possibilities.

On the left of the Dashboard there is no fuse 20A - only 15A or 7.5A - but I found central locking Fuse under hood on drivers side fuse box.

I took it out swapped it with another still the same

I got the trunk open it was stuck so I sat/pushed down and magically the key turned and it opened - the Hydraulic Pump was empty so i filled it

I tried to lower the roof but oil came out of the roof hydraulic, would the trunk open or not regardless of the roof hydraulic leak?

or is it a step by step that it unlocks the roof first then goes to step two of opening the trunk etc

thanks
