Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency

1 Answer

Trunk lid closer will not work, fuse is good.

The trunk lid closer on my 1992 Olds 98 Regency Elite won't close the trunk. I checked the fuse and it is good.

If I remove the trunk lid closer motor and worm gear will the trunk close all the way or does the closer motor and gear have to be replaced?

Thanks, Phil

    I have a 1993 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight and the trunk lid closer works intermittently. What needs to be done to make it work all the time? Currently the trunk will not shut.

The trunk motor won't work


Hi!!

Remove motor from trunk and test it using jumper wires from the battery.

You can get a used one for $20 at the junk yard or a new one at the dealer for about $80.

Trunk doesn't close all the way


Before going to a repair facility, check the fuse for 'convenience group' , the relay in the distribution box under the hood, the connector in the trunk, and the closing motor itself--sometimes they get loose on their brackets, and fall away from the metal closing loop on the trunk lid. Also check the metal closing loop on the trunk lid--sometimes they get loose and don't enter the closing motor mechanism at the right depth for the motor to capture it and secure it down.
