Try having someone pull up on the trunk lid while pulling the lever or using the key. sounds like something may have jammed in the lock or the lock striker. this actually happens quite often.

The trunk open indicator shows trunk open, but it's closed.


There is a switch in the trunk, that will close when the trunk is closed. This switch probably has become loose and out of adjustment, failing to work when trunk is closed. Find and readjust the trunk open\closed sensor.

My 1987 Cadillac fleetwood D'elegance trunk wont open,even when i push the trunk release button in the glove department


Do you hear a click noise at all? You could try this.. One person sit on the truck lid, (heavier may be better) relieving the lift tension on the lock, while the other person push the button and hold. Sitter then hops off and pulls up on the trunk lid. If not working, Sitter person could try gently bouncing on the trunk lid while you hold the button.

If no joy, then you need someone to replace or remove the lock and pop it with a screwdriver.

My trunk popped open for no reason at all on 3 different occasions. Twice when I went down to the garage it was open. (I keep the doors unlocked in the garage so I didn't hit the remote at all). And...


Most often I'v encountered a 'sensitive' button (trunk open) on the key fob. Did you have the key fob in your pocked or purse (no offense, don't know your gender). Check the fob for 'sensitivity' of the 'trunk open' button. This could be where the issue/problem is.

It's the body control module. It's located under the dash to the left of the steering column. I had same problem, went to the junk yard and bought one and the problem went away. Dealer wants $600.00-700.00 for the BCM, I paid $30.00

Try pressing down on the trunk /hatch and at the same time turn the key to try and open it. It might take a lot of downware pressure to finally get it to come open.
