Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight

1 Answer

The trunk release buttons on my 1995 Olds 88 starts the car but does not open the trunk!

I inherited this car from my sister-in-law and it had only 52,000 miles on it. When I tried to open the trunk using either of the two trunk release buttons, it starts the car! I bet nobody has ever heard of this problem. And they do not open the trunk. When you start the car that way, the key will not turn it off. You have to push the trunk release button again.

Seems to me the auto start and your factory key fob have the same freq. if it is a factory remote start there is something crossed somewhere. You should be able to find a disconnect switch for your remote start somewhere( in fuse box area or underneath the dash) once found follow the wire to the remote start receiver. Visually check wires and try and get a make and model number of the remote starter. Google the wiring diagram for that type of RS.

    I don't have a remote starter. I have no idea if the car came with one or not but I know I only got two keys that are just normal keys. It's when I press either the button on the dash or the one in the glove compartment that the car starts.

Cannot open the trunk of car with key. This was my mother-in-law's car and we're wondering if there is a trunk release somewhere?


There's a trunk release under the dashboard under the steering wheel. Square yellow button. Once you get it open. WD 40 the lock. Plus, sometimes junk in the trunk will get tangled in the locking mechanics.

Power trunk not opening trunk


Check the release solenoid for power, open the trunk and have someone press the remote release button, does it make a kind of clunk noise at the latch area? If not check the fuses and the power to the release solenoid in the trunk.
