Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

The trunk will only intermittently open from the key fob or the interior button, most of the time I end up having to open the trunk using the key. Posted this with not much response. I'm hesitant to buy another remote as this is the third one I've bought for this car.

Locate trunk latch for dodge charger 2014


I'm not sure what you're definition of trunk latch is so let's cover all the bases.

The trunk latch mechanism is inside the trunk well. When you open the truck lid, look down, right in the middle of the back lip that you would have to lift things over to put them in the trunk. The latch mechanism is right there in the middle. While you are looking in the location, look just to the left as you are standing behind the vehicle, and you will see a handle kind of like the pull handle on the end of the cord for your walk behind mower. That is a glow in the dark, emergency pull release for the trunk latch. If you or a child ever got caught in the trunk for some reason, you can pull that handle to manually operate the trunk latch to allow you to open the trunk lid.

On your key FOB, you have a trunk release button as well. If you push that button twice within 5 seconds, the trunk latch will release. You also have a trunk release button to the left of the steering wheel. It's a round button with a picture of a car with an open trunk lid. You can push that to open the trunk lid as well. To use the button inside the car, or the one on the key FOB, the car must have the transmission in park. It will not release the trunk latch if the vehicle is in gear.

The Liftgate Module does have something to do with the remote FOBs (it has the receiver for the FOBs) and could also have an effect on the courtesy lights, it senses an open liftgate and sends that info to the Body Control Module (BCM). An area of common problems are the wires in the rubber boot between the body and the liftgate, these wires need to be checked for breakage.

2011 Nissan Altima - trunk will not lock and if you push button on trunk after locking with key fob and it opens up - what's up with that?


My wife is in San Francisco on business right now. She is driving this vehicle as a rental and found out that the trunk can be opened after you have locked the car the hard way. Her luggage and computer was taken from the trunk because of an outer trunk release button that you can access. Nicely done Nissan. Thanks. (sarcasm)

HHow to open trunk


To open your trunk there is a lever to the left of the driver seat, on the floor. If you lift this it will pop the trunk. If you have the electronic key fob that came with the car , there is a trunk button on it. If you press the trunk button twice the trunk lid will pop open automatically. You can get inexpensive key fobs on line and program them yourself if you do not have an electronic key fob.

But a used 2006 solara but key fob does not remotely open trunk. Any suggestions?


Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.
