Chrysler 300 Trunk Lid Release

I repaired the wiring 3 years ago (where it bends to go from the car to the trunk lid) but something has failed in the system again. My thought would be that there is a device that the wire in the lid goes to that might be the culprit this time, but a call to the dealer came up with a part for a Dodge hatchback but nothing for Chrysler. PN 5102338AC Am I close?

I don't recall anything in the wiring path from the hinge location to the lock but if you leave all the vehicle info.... I'll look up a wiring diagram for it.

Chrysler 300 Trunk Lid release

Thanks for the reply Pete, I went looking for a Utube video and found a 'trunk lock actuator motor" that fits my car (2007 Chrysler 3000 with 3.5 V6) It was aftermarket, but at least I can show the dealer what I might need. (I might have more broken wires elsewhere. It was part number 731-714 (Denler?) for about 84 bucks. If I can get my wife to stay at home long enough for me to trace the wiring diagram you send me, I might be able to save some money two ways!

Thanks again!

I gueuss you could say I got Lucky in that all I had were 3 broken wires a little further up in the wire loom. I spliced some new heavier wire in place of the old wire and soldered and taped them all up Good to go. The wires send 12 volts to a device attached in the center of the trunk lid that when actuated, it releases a latch and a spring attached to the Car itself forces the trunk lid to pop up an inch or two, enough to get a set of fingers under the lid and raise it the rest of the way.

Good job.

Sometimes heavier is not better..... but more flexible is.

Chrser 300 Trunk Lid release

10-4 on the "more flexible" I don't think the wire I used was more than on or two steps in the wire gauge scalel. Don't think I lost any flexibility
