Trunk not opening and convertible two press
Longtime member, on my 2nd XLR now. I am so happy to be back! I have read through the posts and could not find something similar.
Trunk does not open either of the 3 ways (fob button, trunk button on trunk lid, trunk button inside). You can hear the latch "unlock", but the top does not open with the hydraulics. I can tell because you hear the latch noise, and you can actually lift the trunk after hearing the unlock latch (however it's very difficult). After a few seconds, the trunk automatically locks when it detects the trunk did not actually open.
Trunk DOES open during the convertible open/close cycle. However, it's a 2-step process that requires I release the button and press it again towards the end of the cycle: Hold button for top open, 20 seconds later to close trunk, I hear a pump/buzz from the hydraulic pump area while still holding the button. I can hold for a while but I don't want to damage anything. If I let go and press again 1 second later, the trunk then closes. Similar for the reverse. Does this make sense?
The hydraulic bay is dry, but not clean. 1 hydraulic line (13) has a bit of a leak or corrosion, white powder like.
I have checked all fuses I think are related. Before I check 30 more unrelated fuses, or resort to a TechII reprogram, any other troubleshooting tips?
Thank you to all in advance.
