Trunk will not open

Postby stan0614 » Mon Sep 14, 2015 8:17 am



I have a new 2015 Goldwing. The trunk will not open. I can pop it open with the key FOB but I cannot open it manually. The Saddlebags open manually with no problem - just the trunk will not open.
A couple of questions - Is there something I’m missing ? and this is a warranty item right ?

Definitely a warranty item. If you can pull the manual releases down for the saddlebags and they open, but the trunk release when pulled does not open the trunk, then get the dealer to fix it.

If you haven't already tried to, push down on the trunk and hit the release....
