What would cause no power to the trunk lid on a 2006 PT Cruiser convertible?

Asked by May 15, 2012 at 04:52 PM about the 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There is absolutely no power to the trunk lid. There isn't even a clicking noise when using the key fob or button in the glove box. Any idea what the issue could be? Trunk lid will open manually with key.

The electrical soleniod that operates the trunk linkage probably failed. That's why you can still use your key, but not the fob.

Check your wiring harness to the trunk lid, wires often break where they bend along decklid hinge. Happened a couple times to my wife's 06 convert.

Thanks Jim. It was a broken wire where the wires bend when you close the trunk lid. Wired it back together. Trunk lid works with key fob again.
