Question about 2007 Cadillac DTS Sedan

What might be wrong with the trunk release on this 2007 Cadillac DTS? (It's not the valet switch)

I have a 2007 Cadillac DTS with a trunk release problem. it was working fine, and than just stopped. Checked the valet switch, not the problem. I am not getting power to the fuse on either side, and when i power the fuse up with a hot positive, it instantly pops the trunk. Thought it was a bad relay and swapped it, but it does the same thing with or without the relay installed. Anyone have any insight?

    The Solus scantool reads proper operation of the butto on the dash as well as the fob. i can open the trunk with the solus, but the button/fob will not unlock it. like i said, the car is picking up the signals.

Which fuse were you checking? There are two fuses in the trunk release circuit - one underhood (ALDL) which feeds the trunk/fuel door release circuits via the valet switch and also the ALDL circuit; and one under the back seat (BODY fuse) for the trunk release.

Unfortunately, relay control signals for these releases run through the IPM (Instrument Panel Integration Module) which handles the release buttons on the dash, and the RIM (Rear Integration Module), which receives these signals from the IPM and handles them and the trunk release button on the keyless remote.

If the fuel door release is working at the dash and the trunk release is not, the ALDL fuse should be OK and the problem may still be with the BODY fuse, trunk release relay or wiring. If that isn't the problem, then I suggest you check for IPM and RIM DTC's (error codes).

The body control module (BCM) may be at fault.

My valet mode in my Cadillac dts will not turn off. It's a 2006. Can't get to my music or my trunk won't open. Please help.


It may be the ALDL fuse in the underhood fuse block, so check that. If OK, it may be the trunk release relay in the fuse block under the rear seat - also check that.
If those are OK, the valet switch in the glove box may have failed in the open position. Remove the glove box and disconnect the wire connector from the switch; then jumper the two wires together. If that fixes the problem, replace the switch.

Assuming the center high mounted stop lamp (LED) is OK, both symptoms point to the BCM but in the case of the trunk the valet switch could be on or shorted to turn on.

How to reset 1992 cadillac deville truck release


Hello: THERE IS NO RESET for the trunk release button. In the glove box there is a valet switch. If it is in the valet position the trunk release will NOT work. Also check the fuse. If those two items are okay then you will have to diagnose as a electrical problem.
