Why will the wireless remote not open trunk but it will unlock the doors on your 2000 Avalon?

If you haven't already done this, try holding the trunk release button down for a few seconds on your remote. Toyota set it up this way so that you don't accidentally open the trunk when you mean to lock the doors. There is also a button inside the glovebox that will disable or enable that function. try pressing it and then use the remote.

You have to press the unlock button 2 or 3 times to get both doors to unlock no programming needed

Press it once for the driver's door only, and again to unlock the rest of the doors.

if your vehicle is equipped with remote to unlock doors it will work that way, otherwise you must unlock from the inside.

One reason that your remote key will not unlock your Mazda 6 is that a fuse is blown. You may need to replace the batteries in the remote or reprogram the remote. A bad body control module is another reason the remote will not unlock the doors.
