Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille
I can not open my trunk without using the key what can do to fix this ?
There is a lock solenoid in the trunk. You will need to check for power and ground at the solenoid while activating the switch.

You may have simply pushed the valet button inside your glove box. The button need to released or in the out position for the trunk relase to work on the remote.

hello theres really not many choices if you have a trunk key it should work if not and the inside trunk release isnt working either you could try to get at the lock setup from the back seat take your lower seat out remove the lower holding bolts slide up off the top lock setup see if theres enough room to work from there to pop the trunk open with a flash light and a screwdriver if not your going to have to pop the lock cylinder at your trunk once its out you can get a aftermarket replacement under $ 20 goodluck please rate

I believe you can remove the back seat and get into it. Remove the lower part of the back seat first and remove attaching bolts/screws to remove the upper part of the seat.

Yes, it has a fuse but I do not have a diagram unfortunately. Or it could be your indicator switch on the inside driver's side of the trunk. The remote will not work if the trunk is already open OR if the switch is bad/not contacting the stopper (at the base of the trunk) and falsley telling the PCM that the trunk is ajar. But if this were the problem, your should be getting a warning that your "trunk is ajar" from the onboard warning display on the guage cluster. The switch is cheesy...had to replace mine.

isn't there a MANUAL RELEASE CABLE in the trunk ? Check for a blown 20A fuse. Ck fuse around fuse # 22. Hope this helps
