After finding out that you had to take apart the passenger side door to get to the control unit to try and figure out what was wrong, I decided it was a lot easier just to use the key to open the trunk of my 2009 versa sedan. I know that was not the answer you wanted to hear, but it works for me. Good luck!!Come on Folks, still no one found a reliable Fix for this issue?
I'm having the same issue with my Nissan TIIDA 2012.
Seeking for a reliable solution...
The same thing happened to me! Replaced with an OE Quality part that fixed the trunk not opening at all, but now I have this problem. Did you ever find the fix for this? Wondering if I should have coughed up the extra dough for the Nissan manufactured part...However, the hatch will only open if the passenger door is open for some reason. It is not tied into the latch. I manually closed the latch with the door open and it would open, but with the door closed it will not open. Better than not opening at all, but still a pain. Hopefully I can figure out the problem and update.
