    Hi All,
    I have 2002 concorde LXI and its trunk is not opening via remote nor
    from the control inside the car. Its opening with key only now. I
    check the fuse box and did not find anything relating to trunk. Would
    you have any idea how to fix this.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would take first a look at opener solenoid, check for contacts and if
    it's energized.

    I have the same problem with my 02 concorde lx, Chrysler diagnosed it as a
    bad cable in the interior in the car.
    I did not bother having it fixed as they wanted a minimum of $200.
    My solenoid is good , If i apply voltage directly to it, it activates. Check
    the continuity of the cable that goes through the trunk lid, it might be

    A common problem with the trunk release/light/center stop light is
    breaks in the wiring harness leading to the lock/unlock mechanism (I
    had it happen on some of my LH vehicles).

    So check for continuity (there is a connector on the driver's side of
    the trunk and thus you can check whether the wires are in tact with a
    standard multi-meter).

    The dealer wanted around $70+ for the new harness. So I decided to
    fabricate my own -- the weak spot of the existing design is that they
    have a thick plastic stick inserted into the harness at the point
    where it has to slide through the ring on the trunk lid (to ensure
    that the wires don't twist, etc). The breaks happen at the point where
    the ends of the plastic rod rub against the wires.

    Initially, I just simply fixed the breaks and put the harness back
    together -- however that did not last for long, the wires broke in
    about the same spot.

    The lasting solution was to get rid of the hard plastic stick and
    instead rewire the harness using NEW wires. I taped the wires together
    with an electrical tape to make them into a harness. In the place
    where the wires were attached to the plastic stick I instead put them
    into a piece of clear tubing of about the same length as the plastic
    stick was.

    This solution worked out OK for me.

    As the others have suggested, check the wiring from the instrument panel
    to the actuator. When my '99 did the same thing, it turned out the
    connector had come loose at the actuator/lock, and all I had to do was
    re-connect it. I hope it's that easy for you.
