      2009 CC trunk has a short to ground or something. Will not open at all, only option is to have my 7 year old daughter climb through from the rear seats and pull the cord. Anyone have this happen to them? if so is their an easy fix to avoid waiting around at the dealer.

      Thanks

      Have VCDS? Scan for fault(s) to narrow it down. Maybe a faulty lock actuator.

      Make sure it is not locked with the key from the driver's door lock near the trunk release button.

      How did not drying cause this problem to occur ?

      Hard water buildup as soon as I cleaned and dried no problem with it

      I took the car into the dealership and they diagnosed the problem as a faulty CCM. My warranty replaced the unit for free.

      My trunk stopped opening as well.. i check all the locks. (ie: driver door key lock, 2nd button on remote, unlock button for doors) the only way for me to open the trunk now is to pull emergency manual handle inside the trunk.

      You mentioned a faulty CCM.. r u refering to the main computer? please elaborate. thx

      Behind the lower dash close-out panel, behind the tilt-open storage cubby by your left knee.

      It happened to me as well last year.

      For some unknown reason the wires that were strapped to the frame from factory got loose and when I closed the trunk one got cut.

      Opened the left panel and taped the wire back and good as new.

      Very lucky otherwise CCM costs here in Romania more than 100 Euro

      thank you for posting.. I thought i had a bad module. But like yourself, I think i have a some kind of a short circuit in the trunk.. I used the manual pull lever to get in the trunk then i started checking all the wires around the panels.. next thing i noticed, the trunk started working again... I'll have to keep digging around to find which cable it actually is because a couple days later... the trunk stopped opening.

      Hi,

      My 2010 CC Luxury in Canada has roughly 100,000km. so no warranty available.

      Here is chain of events that happened to me:

      1. Closed the trunk as normal
      2. Tried to open. The remote didn't work, the interior button (driver's door) didn't work.
      3. Climbed into the trunk and opened it with the emergency pull.
      4. When started the car it showed that all lights that are located on the trunk door are not working.
      5. Confirmed by seeing that my reverse and the other two lights are not working.
      6. In the garage (it's cold in Alberta) I took apart the trunk and that's where the mystery started to happen.
      When I unplugged the trunk opener motor, the light on the trunk door came alive. As soon as I plug the power into the trunk opener, the lights go off. I decided to check if trunk would open now - when the trunk is opened (upright position) the remote and interior button top open it - it all works. I got prematurely excited since I thought it was just a loose connection of some wires. Put the covers all back closed the trunk - it doesn't work. I open the trunk manually - the remote and the button work. I can hear them move and when I manually close the little tongue on the trunk door - it opens but only when the trunk door is in the upright position.

      I got mad and decided to come to VW vortex for some advice before taking it to my good mechanic.

      It seems that there is no issue with wiring or fuses. It is really weird that the trunk opener will not work when in the closed position but only when in the opened (upright) position.

      Anyone can help me with some advice? Is it some shortage? Or just VW mystery in the electrical department as always.

      Thank you in advance.

      This happened to me. Luckily my car was under 80k. Because they had to replace the CCM. The total cost billed to VW warranty was around $700.


      Tits? or Tires? they are both going to cost you money!
