I assume the key works or you would've mentioned it. So my first thought was fuses, you should pull the fuse for the trunk mechanism, put in a new fuse even if that one still looks good, if that doesn't work, try the original fuse to see if the new one was a dud. Either way you'll know if that's the problem or not. Another thought, it could just be the remote. Some car makers saved some money by removing the mech. connection from the handle to the lock, since the remote receiver and motor were already there. Pushing the button would send the same signal out as the remote. Put new batteries in the remote. One last suggestion, read the owners manual and/or website, and find out if you can simply re-set the code/frequency to default. Hope that helped, Grimm

SOURCE: Trunk wont open on my 2001 vw tdi jetta

You can open it old school. Insert the key in the trunk lock in the VW emblem and turn it while pushing down on the trunk lid with the other hand a little bit. It should open. The plastic arm that the motor is pushing to unlock may be broken. I have the same problem. You can see it if you unscrew the fabric from the trunk lid and press the button on the remote. There are about a dozen fuzzy head screws (nicely masked btw.) that hold it. I am still looking for the proper name of the part so I can order it for my car.

SOURCE: how to get into trunk w/o keys and trunk opener. Keys are locked in trunk and button inside car is locked.

Using your keyless entry on the keypad, press the 5 digit code to get into the door and press the 6 key immediately after. Lincoln has several codes in addition to the 5 digit keyless entry like pressing the 3 to open all the doors, the 6 for the trunk and pressing the last 2 buttons at the same time to lock the doors.

SOURCE: Trunk does not open with button inside car. Does

Your Valet cancel switch is set.


Open your glovebox and you will see a pushbutton on the the left side, if memory serves. When this button is set, the power button will be disabled, but the key fob button will still work.
This is for when you Valet your car, you push the cancel button in the glovebox, lock the glovebox, then give the Valet your Valet key, which will not open the trunk or the glovebox. Voila, no Valet rummaging through your trunk :)

Often full gloveboxes will be the cause of the button getting pushed accidentally.

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.
