 Do you know of a way to test the pump to see if it still works.  I've
checked the wiring in the door of my 4kcsq and all seems fine.  One wire at
the plug connection tested around 12V so it's definetly getting power at the

 On my 90Q, the trunk lock failure was mechanical.  There is a mechanical
thingy that slides left and right to disable/enable the push-to-open
