Is there a noise within the door when the button is depressed? If so, sounds like a connecting arm in the locking mechanism may have come loose...

It won't open with the remote because the button doesn't work because there's probably no power to the button.

Check ground and power to the button with a little voltmeter.

Check fuses that are related to the button.

If you find a fuse is blown, then throw a new fuse in. If it blows again, you know you have a bad ground.

Check fuse.. Test for power to trunk release solenoid. When door button, or remote trunk release button is pushed. If there is power ( use a 12 volt test light ) most probably faulty release . Hope this helps

Trunk won't open with either remote but will open with trunk button on drivers door


I would check the owners manual or with Cadillac - its possible the remotes lost part of the signal and need to be reset. It sounds like the receiver is not getting a signal from them by using that button.
Could be the receiver too.

I have a 2004 Cadillac CTS and after changing my battery the driver side windows won't go down. the whole electrical on the driver doors isn't working. what do i need to do?


First check your fuses (Manual should have that location for the window fuses). Also do the other windows go down on the other side with the switch on the drivers door? And what else doesn't work ( Mirrors, Locks )?

I have a 2005 CTS cadallic And I cannot open the trunk with my remote or my button oin the drivers side door panel. What do I need to do?


Open the trunk manually. Pull down the back seat armrest and open the door for trunk access. There is a yellow handle that is above the door, pull the handle and the trunk will open manually.
The remedy for your problem is probably the fuse that runs the solenoid to the trunk opener, it is found under the rear seat passenger side. It has a black cover over it, remove the cover and find the corresponding fuse.

if you here a clicking sound when you push the remote or the drivers button then the solenoid and fuse are probably o.k. lubricate the trunk lid catch and operate the latch a few times, also check the tension on the trunk itself , it should lift up part of the way by itself, if not 1. lubricate the hinges and move trunk lid up and down. if still bad 2. if it has a tension rod adjust the rod to a stronger setting if it has gas shocks, 3.replace shocks. if no click and fuse is good solenoid may be bad
