Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Need to replace 1994 Cadillac Sedan Deville Trunk emblem

I got a new trunk emblem because the old one that has sliding cover that hides the key lock cylinder broke off (cover) so I have this new cover and can not figure how to get the trunk lock cylinder that has the cable running to it for remote release free from cover and free from trunk
Is there a DIY proceedure for this, I think I need to remove the plastic casing that hugs the back of the key lock cylinder but do not want to break it off, is there a way this snaps off or is there a turn and twist or are there hidden clips. its kinda tight in that inside trunk area and thought this would be an easy job once removing the U clip that holds the key lock cylinder in place against the trunk inside.

Please help
Thanks, James

    C17hydro, thanks, I will give it a shot this weekend. I just looks like that plastic cover on the backside of the trunk cylinder looks impossible to "pop" off with out breaking it. Pulling on the Cable that goes into it also may break or be damaged.

    I think I will definitly take some pictures for futhur comment incase anyone else can benifit from this DIY proceedure.

You should have a trunk lock cylinder in the trunk lid. Look to the right side of the license l plate by the license plate light and you will see a black plastic cover. Remove the cover to expose the lock cylinder then use your key.

There should be a key slot in the trunk emblem, or the emblem will spin to reveal it. If the key just spins it needs a new door lock cylinder. You can see my previous solutions for how to remove it.

Hey i have a 1991 buick park ave i lost my keys i went to the dealer to get one made they said its to old no codes are comen up what do i do please help

You will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder and it will come with a new ignition key. As for the doors/trunk you will most likely have to hire a locksmith to make you a new one. Or you can replace all of the door lock cylinders as well. See links below.

If that were me, I would remove the switch from the glove box, get a long wire, hook it to a power source and tap the side that goes to the trunk lock solenoid, take the power wire from your power source and just tap ends til you hear the trunk lock solenoid open. That should do it. Let me know if you need anything else.
