Question about 1990 Cadillac Eldorado
The trunk lid on my son's 1990 Eldo no longer pulls down. I checked out the switch that is on the motor and it works properly. There is a remote switch located somewhere on the trunk lid that detects when the lid is down to begin the pull-down sequence. It is obviously bad as I get no continuity through the two leads that go to this switch. These two wires get lost in the harness and I cannot locate the switch for replacment or repair.
The trunk closer motor has a plastic drive inside that fractures over time, electrically it will check out,may even function WITHOUT latching the lid(no load), but will slip when trying to engage the lid, solution replace the unit. Yes, the switch is inside. Have replaced too many to count and all that where"autopsied" were broken as described.
