Default Trunk won't open (2000 vr6)

All it does is click and lights flash.
Would this device help? Anyone use it?

I have a video from the inside (removed interior) but unfortunately the format cannot upload here. I can probably email it if necessary (or YouTube?).

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

You don't post your location in your profile. We do have VAG-COM/VCDS User Locations but very few members add their details.

I've watched that video in your first post, have you checked that?

With VAG-COM\VCDS you can check the voltage and current to components.

Default Trunk won't open (2000 vr6) (Not acuator issue)

Trunk issues, blah blah blah.
Bought a new actuator and installed. Worked randomly. Ironically when the trunk is open, but not when closed. After I installed the old actuator, it worked.

See this video:
? He mentions roughly 30 seconds in that the issue was the wire towards the left of the actuator and not the actuator itself. Any idea how I can look into this?

PS: How do delete threads I started? I'd like to tidy up here for others if I can.

Is that your video or one you have found?

Do you have access to VAG-COM\VCDS to check systems out?

If you can't delete this thread confirm that is what you want and I will delete it.

Not my video.

Do not have access to suggested device. But I think I figured it out. See attached photo. When I moved the wire(s) slightly the mechanism worked (and stronger). But I guess I moved it too much and now won't work again. I also noticed my radio reception has got worse. Related?

Referring to another thread. Will comment there. Many thanks.

Why do you want them deleting?

Oh, good idea.

I thought declutterig my posts with no solution would be helpful for other visitors.
