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

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.

Remote control won't lock/unlock doors, but will open the trunk. What;s wrong?


There is a fuse box under the right rear seat cushion behind the driver. In that box is a 10 amp mini fuse marked "TRUNK DR RELEASE". That is the fuse that powers your remote receiver. If that fuse is good, the receiver may have failed. To remove the seat cushion, pull the front of the cushion up and then forward.

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.

Trunk will not close


With the trunk open try to accuate the button on the driver's door, check the state of the lock in the trunk first and see or have someone watch it if it moves when you push the door's button.

You may also try manually to open the lock right in the trunk.
