Fold down rear seat and climb in the trunk....there is a manual release at the center of the trunk lid. (mandated by the government to kids don't get trapped in the trunk).

Trunk release works as intended when ignition is off and remote is used. when trunk is closed and ignition key is turned on, trunk opens and latch keeps clicking until key is turned off.


Hello James Squyres,

Of the 33 TSBs (tech service bulletins)...

I found nothin on your issue...

Going to the vehicle drawings... (I'm guessing you are considering keeping this beauty)...

Get the FACTORY+WORKSOP+MANUAL... I HIGHLY
recommend for drawing (exactly this issue) and easy secrets to get through those nasty UNIQUE Caddy tasks.. that NO body but your friendly CADDILAC Club might ALSO know...

Nevertheless...
your drawings are presently available on one of my favorite sites "BBB Industries: (see below, registration required).

Perusing the drawings...
The only source not shared with your manual ignition source appears to be through your "TRUNK RELEASE" function.. is sourced (without the ignition) through "THE TRUNK LID LATCH SWITCH"... (ground source).

I am thinking LATCHED (totally defective, replace) contacts there would cause your problem...

BUT... on further consideration...

The drawing show a total TRAVEL of the un-latched lock should completely open the ground circuit... reversing POLARITY of the motor and ready it for the LATCHING sequence...

To me...

It looks to be the trunk lock TRUNK-LID PULL DOWN MOTOR STRIKER SWITCHES... failing to release (change polarity) in the UP position...

Replace the "TRUNK-LID ADJAR" switch.
Everything SHOULD come up peaches...

As to why it is not an issue with manual control...
I'd need to be there with a Volt-Ohm Meter

(perhaps we could dialog)...

Happy hunting...

8/11/2016... post week-long silence

So... 9 DAYs later

little more dialog is not acceptable (?)
I'll go to my monolog:

If you don't know how to run a Volt-Ohm Meter
I'm wasting your time (GOOD DIGITAL $10).

Because of the POLARITY REVERSAL (to push the latch up (when radio-released))...
IS A GROND START SEQUENCE..!!

It is not reasonable to look beyond the mechanical contacts (which I ALREADY) noted... previously.

The full open motion
(at the end of the open cycle)...
Should push the contacts (to reverse polarity)... STOPPING THE UPWARD DIRECTION...
The battery contact (close sequence) is a BATTERY START SEQUENCE) is triggered by gentle push of the trunk lid into the LATCH.

It the travels down tightening the trunk-lid into place... and reversing the MOTOR POLARITY again at the FULL CLOSED POSITION

The ONLY thing that can keep the motor running is bad contact in the release switch... or (somebody) HAYWIRED it.

It would HAVE BEEN be nice to know if you UNDERSTAND the electro-mechanical nature of your lock assembly.

HAVE you done any rewiring (HAYWIRING) would be the PRIME CONCERN...

ELSE... It is the trunk latch contacts.

When last I looked ... those parts were still available...

and having spare parts for a collector quality car cannot be that DISTASTFUL...

I'd give it a TRY (I'm just saying)

2008 Dodge Avenger trunk will not open


It's a common problem. The electronic release mechanism for the trunk breaks and has to be replaced. Until you replace it you will have to use the manual pull.

Trunk lid will not close - either electronically


Once a close fails, the latch may be now in the closed position, preventing a second try.
So release it first.
You should see the latch open up, so that it can accept the locking pin once again.
Then try closing it again.
If you have pounded on it, it may be hard to get it to release now, so you may have to pry on it with a screwdriver.

The trunk won't latch shut. It has the interior trunk release and electronic release from keychain. Also has trunk lid pulldown.


Try this forum. I had the same problem and they were saying to take off the trunk release actuator. I did and it worked. Don't take the whole piece off of the trunk lid (although if you do, it's easy to put back on), but take the one piece (the actuator) off of the latch. I don't know anything about cars and I was able to do it. Not hard at all. Take a look at the forum:

Rear trunk lid wont close


There's an electronic actuator inside the trunk door. The actuator opens the trunk lid when you press either the remote keyless entry or the inside trunk release. If the electronic actuator fails it usually fails in the trunk open mode which will not allow you to close the trunk lid. You can either remove the actuator and take the car to the VW dealer, or buy a new actuator and replace it yourself. It's a tough fix, but not impossible for the mechanically inclined.

2002 Mercury Grand Marquis. Backup lights won't work


Does pushing the trunk release button make the back up lights illuminate? Has the car been serviced or wrecked before this problem? Have you been golfing and put clubs in the huge trunk. Either the ground wire for the trunk lid devices is bad or the trunk release wire (purple/orange) and the reverse lamps wire (purple/white) have been reversed.

Car won't start after using Auto headlights on 2005 Lexus LS430


The trunk should auto close when you manually lower the lid to the almost closed position, but it is NOT designed to open up fully when you hit the trunk release on the key fob, nor when you open the trunk manually using the touch sensitive button under the lip of the trunk.

Trunk won't close


You should be able to Close that Manually. Just wait for the Electronic Close to Stop Trying before you close it and it should be just fine.
