    Have you checked to see if the bolts were loose on the latch assembly on the lid? And, is your catch bent?

I'm going to guess that it is electric. If so then you are in luck, otherwise you will have to make a manual adjustment. If it is indeed an electric truck then there is a small place where you can press that will make the "catch" rise back up. It is located around the truck catch. You will have to thumb around for it but it is there. This is something that I've done many, many times. Also if the trunk is electric then make sure that you never slam it. Hope this helps.

If it has and electric pull down motor, the motoris out and should be replaced. if it is manual, it is probably locked or out of adjustment

How to replace 1989 camaro trunk lock


You will have to access the lock mec from the inside of the trunk. By removing the trim panels to access it. Or if the lock mec is not destroyed like someone has to to break into it. You can have a locksmith rekey the tumblers to match your existing door key. Hope this helps.

Where is the "Interior Relay Panel" for an 1989 Cadillac Eldorado? The power trunk will not close and I need to check that fuse.


Before you go looking for the fuse check to make sure there is power going to the electric motor that raises and lowers your trunk lid, If you have power and if you have ground it is a burnt out motor and needs to be replaced. However the relay should be in the interior relay panel against the firewall on the interior of the car behind the dashboard. Until you find the solution you can always take the motor out and turn it to the closed position and your trunk will close like any normal non electric trunk.

I replace a u joint on a 1989 camaro but it wont drive no where only on reverse sometimes


It sounds like you have a failed transmission, the U-Joint would not correct that. Have a local transmission repair facility road test the car and give you a preliminary diagnosis, it is free in most cases. I thank you will need to replace or rebuild the transmission.

TRUNK WONT CLOSE


After years of use either the actuator is interfering with closure or the pin assembly has pushed the lock asembley down. May need to be loosened and raised for proper closure around the pin that keeps it closed. Also oiling may free up some funtion of the trunk closure assembly.

1989 Camaro. Trunk latch will not catch and


Lube it up well & try a screwdriver in latch, the same way it would catch on striker on body and see if it snaps in and holds, if it doesn't, keep lubricating latch and try again until it does. Work key position in lock as well, to make sure it is actually in the latch position & not stuck in open position.When/if it does, and still won't hold closed, then you need to loosen bolts at latch and adjust a little at a time until it does.

Rear motorized hatch stuck in up posotion


I had this same problem. Try slamming the trunk close so that the latch on the door of the trunk will catch onto the motor and then try opening it back up with the key, That worked for me. If not you just may need a new motor.
