Check to see if the fuse has popped to power it, check its eletrical connections by pulling the carpet bit away and seeing if it "looks" ok no obvious damage, See if the latch moves correctly by popping it etc and check if the latch hasnt been bent and your just hammering it further away every time you slam it down.

Trouble with trunk lid staying closed goes down but comes back up


Please make sure your keys are not in the trunk because there is a safety mechanism that will not allow the trunk to stay closed if the keys are detected in the trunk. The other issue will be if the hold down mechanism is not pulling the trunk completely closed once the trunk engages the lock. You will then have to have it serviced to make sure the pull down motor is operating.

Trunk pull Down Motor Suddenly stopped working


did it quit making the noise when you lightly push down on the trunk? most people slam these trunks and your not suppose to you are only to put light pressure on them and they pull it closed theirself.. you might check your relays under the hood and look in the box lid to see which one it is.. if this is not the problem you might have to replace the motor to the latch .. you might check with a test light to see if there is power to the motor first though .. thanks and holler if you have more Jerry .

My trunk on my eldorado 87 wont catch to close


sounds like the the trunk pull down assy is not raising. On the pull down is a black little piece of plastic ( part of the switch ), Flip up plastic to see if motor wll raise pull down, then the trunk can be closed normally. If it doesn't raise, further diagnosis will be required in the pull down motor area
