SOURCE: 1996 Cadillac Deville trunk pull

There is a switch that lets the motor know that the trunk is closed all the way. This switch may be faulty or not adjusted correctly. Find the wire that feeds the switch and check it with an ohm meter to see if it is working.

Why doesn't pull down switch grab the trunk lid?


There's a motor that pulls the trunk lid down after it latches. The motor is under the latch on the body side. to test it, push a philips screwdriver shank into the latch like it was grabbing the trunk pull down motor to see if it triggers the motor to operate

Which fuse is for the trunk lid release


There is a motor back there. You gently push the trunk lid down, then the motor pulls it closed. Fuse #8 15 amp, but usually people damage this system by slamming the trunk lid, then the motor needs replaced. I hope that's not the case; they are $$$ not cheap. if the door locks and the power mirrors work, this fuse is good.

My trunk will not close completely it will lock but it does not secure flush as normal at it will not allow me to push it close shut please help in this issue


Your vehicle has what we call a trunk pull down motor. The silver bar on the body of the car is attached to this. When you close your trunk, it latches and then this motor is supposed to pull the trunk closed the rest of the way. You will need to replace this motor assembly. When purchasing the replacemeny motor, make sure it comes with the black switch with the little flapper on it, as this is the part of the assembly that fails.

I have a 1996 lincoln towncar and the trunk isn't closing all the way. from what i have read it is probably the pull down motor???? could you tell me where that is located and what to do to test it to see...


The pull down motor is easy to change open your trunk and look where it latches thats your pull down motor it is probably 3 10 milimeter bolts you will probably have to take out the plastics that cover it up and push back or remove the trunk liner material by it. change your motor and you will have to adjust the motor by lightly snugging the bolts and closing the trunk till it is in the right position then tighten bolts and reinstale liner

Trunk wont pull shut.


You have a pull down switch that activates the pull down motor for the trunk lid to close. The manufacture of this part supplies this to Ford & General Motors vehicles. You can go to a Cadillac dealership & purchase this part far cheaper than at Ford. I use to work at a GM dearlership & my neighboring Ford dealer would order this part from me for the cost of mine where less than the cost from Ford. Figure those guys out at Ford. No wonder they don't need a goverment bailout

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
