You need a new Starter and Solinoid. The solinoid could be what is Killing the Battery also.

My 1987 Cadillac fleetwood D'elegance trunk wont open,even when i push the trunk release button in the glove department


Do you hear a click noise at all? You could try this.. One person sit on the truck lid, (heavier may be better) relieving the lift tension on the lock, while the other person push the button and hold. Sitter then hops off and pulls up on the trunk lid. If not working, Sitter person could try gently bouncing on the trunk lid while you hold the button.
Groceries still in trunk after 3 months???
If no joy, then you need someone to replace or remove the lock and pop it with a screwdriver.

My battery wont stay charged in my 87 fleetwood what wrong?


Check for corroded terminals and loose or dirty ground wire to engine from battery.,

Have a load test done on your battery to ensure it's supplying enough cold cranking amps to start the car.

Have your alternator tested to ensure it's putting out a minimum of 13.5 volts at idle and 14-14.5 volts when given a little gas to raise the engine rpms.

Where is the starter on a 87 cadillac


Disconnect cable from battery negative terminal. Raise and support vehicle. Remove starter brackets or shields that may interfere with starter removal. Remove starter mounting bolts and lower starter. Disconnect solenoid wires. Remove starter.
The starter is located at the front of the vehicle, near the bottom.. have a look under, it's round.. It'll look something like this http://www.turnermotorsport.com/image/engine/engine_starter_lg.jpg
