Starter motor on this car is imposible to get to..better find the post forward of the drivers side fuse box in the engine compartment where a bunch of wires come together. This is a positive terminal attach red jumper here put the negative jumper on any bare metal bracket of the engine

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.

Hi Mac...Not sure what year or kind of car but...When your trunk opens, the trunk light comes on which will drain battery down. You can remove the bulb for quick fix...for the drain problem. You can do a battery drain test after you pull the bulb out...just to make sure it is not something else draining Batt down. Remember...your car comp has a small drain to operate clock, radio memory, and computer memory...So when doing Batt drain test you need to know factory allowed Amp drain.
.Trunk latch probably needs an adjustment. Bolts could have loosened on latch. Sometimes you can see the bracket has shifted. Loosen bolts and slide bracket back to original markings. Tighten bolts. My kids thought it was funny playing with the fob key on wife's car and accidently setting off alarm. I had no fob for the key I used on her car. Body shop can quickly adjust trunk latch for a few bucks. Once it is adjusted, put the bulb back in.
