    I don't have a hatch, but if I did I would stick my key in and turn hard.

    I could have sworn that from the factory, the 94-01 Integra had a cable-operated remote trunk release.

    All you had to do was lift up on a small lever near the drivers seat, and the cable would trip a lever, unlocking the trunk.

    Now, if someone installed an electric solenoid as part of a keyless entry system, then it's certainly possible that the solenoid itself has failed. Also, the cable may have snapped or disengaged from the lock.

    Open the hatch from the outside using your key, then remove the trim panel that covers the back of the trunk. The lock is bolted to the inside - obviously - and you'll be able to visually inspect the lock and related components.

    No, this is a stock feature. Not added, the fuel is the only in car lever its big and takes up the whole area where on older integras had both trunk/fuel. I can take a picture if you dont understand. But im certain its a stock feature. it is absolutly cable less and i can hear the motor doing something i think its jammed

    I have the same prob with my 99 LS. I have taken out the side and back panels to see what's up. Everything is connected. Although I saw there is a little black box mounted on the side where the antenna is and am wondering if that part could have gone bad. I think it is an acuator, but not sure since I don't have a repair manual. If any body does have a repair manual your help would be greatly be appreciated

    I have a '99 Integra GS and have been experiencing the same problem with my electronic hatch lock. I read a post by an Acura technician saying they always replaced the actuator assembly when they came across this problem. I assume he meant if the electronic lock is still working. I can still hear my lock working, so I'm probably going to order part # 74840-ST7-A01 (ACTUATOR ASSY.) from Sunnyside Acura (http://acuraparts247.com) sometime soon (item number 25 in the picture).

    Is it stuck, or does the electronic latch just not work? I can open mine with the key by turning the key clockwise and lifting the hatch while holding the key.

    i think i have the same problem. i can unlock everything with my power door locks, but when i try to open the trunk with the lever, it doesnt work. i have to use my key to open the trunk and use the lever at the same time. so try that to get the trunk open.

    Part # 74840-ST7-A01 (ACTUATOR ASSY.) did the trick. Now, for the first time in 2˝ years my electric hatch latch finally works!

    I do the same thing this guy does to my 99 GSR. Otherwise it is stuck. I don't know what the f!@# is wrong with our latches, but I think we have enough people here on this one page to cast a recall.

    I have got the exact same problem on a 99 GSR where the hatch on the trunk doesn't seem to open. I just got the Haynes repair manual and was thinking about replacing the actuator. Just to confirm, did this do the trick for sure?

    Hatch Is Stuck

    My 99 GSR hatch is stuck...I read the post and tried everything with no luck....the key will not open it, the lever makes the noise like its trying to open but doesn't, and I do not have a lever by the fuel pop. Any input/ideas on how to get this thing open to fix it would be great.

    Your key WILL open it. You have to turn the key clockwise as far as it will go and hold it there while lifting the hatch. If you do not have a hatch lever by the fuel lever that means you have the newer and far more failure prone electric actuator release. You will need to replace the part I talked about above.

    Yeah, replacing the actuator solved my problem.

  26. #26

    key opened it after many turns

    I tried my key again, and you were right. I had to turn it about 12 times clockwise and pull back and forth on the trunk but finally it popped a little bit so i could get it open. I appreciate it, and will replace the actuator. Thanks again

    Hello? I have a 98 LS, and i have the same problem. I have to turn the key while lifting the hatch. So the Actuator part mentioned cost how much? is it available at the dealer?

    Yes, the part is or should be available at your local dealership. If they don't have it in stock, they can surely get it. The price online at Sunnyside Acura is $58.27 plus shipping. They also say the list price is $72.84. My guess is that's what your dealership would charge you for the part. If you plan to do the work yourself, you should just buy the part from Sunnyside online.

    This is what I paid for it...


    This is what they are charging for it now...


    If you have issues with buying online you'll just have to pay a little more locally at the stealership.

    Good luck,
