There is a short in the tail light wires. Have someone hold the brake pedal down, and get the trunk open and access to the wires, now go along the harness and gently wiggle the wires and see if you can get the trunk latch to release.

2003 Cadillac deville trunk randomly opens on its own when sitting and not running occasionally what could be the cause.


Do you know anything about automotive electrical testing ? how to read a wiring diagram ? How to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? You can find a free wiring diagram here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html

The trunk release is controlled by an electronic control moduel .
Trunk Release Relay
Output Controls
The rear integration module grounds the trunk relay when commanded ON. The rear compartment should release.

This vehicle has a very complex body control system of three different computers

The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Each of the 3 body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each module is connected to the Class 2 serial data circuit, many of the control functions are implemented by Class 2 messages.

. Rear Integration Module (RIM)
The various RIM inputs and outputs are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the RIM electrical schematics.
The RIM functions include the following:
• Automatic level control
• CIGAR relay control
• Class 2 communication requiring RIM interaction
• Content theft deterrent
• Fuel door control
• Fuel level sensor input
• Heated seat control
• HVAC blower control
• LK/CYL relay control
• Park brake relay control
• Rear defog relay control
• Rear park assist chime control
• Retained accessory power (RAP) relay control
• Reverse relay control
• Transmission shift inhibit
• Trunk release relay control
• Various controls for the interior lamps


Luggage Compartment Description and Operation (General)
Rear Compartment Lid (trunk) release actuation is controlled by the following components.
• Rear Compartment Lid Release Relay
• Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• Rear Integration Module (RIM)
• Valet Switch
• Rear Compartment Lid Release Switch
• Rear Compartment Lid Release Actuator
Battery voltage for the coil side of the trunk release relay is supplied through the Valet switch (with the valet switch in the OFF position) by the ALDL fuse located in the Underhood Fuse (Bussed) Block. Battery voltage for the switch side of the trunk release relay is supplied by the Body fuse located in the Rear Fuse (Bussed) Block. When the rear compartment lid release switch is momentarily pressed, it provides a ground circuit for the trunk release signal of the Instrument Panel Module (IPM). When the IPM senses that the switch has been activated, it sends a Serial Data Class 2 message to the Rear Integration Module (RIM). The RIM then provides a path to ground on the F/TNK DR REL relay control circuit. The trunk release relay is then energized, and battery voltage is applied through the switch side contacts of the trunk release relay to the rear compartment lid release actuator. The actuator is connected to ground through a ground splice pack located at the left rear corner of the rear compartment, near the left tail lamp connector.

Locked out of trunk 2000 cadillac eldorado release button not working i removed lock on trunk still cant get in trunk


Pressing the rear compartment lid release switch provides an input signal to the instrument cluster. The instrument cluster sends a Class 2 serial data message to the body control module (PZM). The PZM grounds connector C6 of the rear compartment lid release solenoid through CKT 1344 (LT BLU) if the following conditions are present:
?€¢
The transaxle is in the PARK position.


?€¢
The valet lockout switch is closed.

Power is supplied through the following components to the now-grounded CKT 1344 (LT BLU):
?€¢
The RADIO/PHONE fuse


?€¢
CKT 40 (ORN)


?€¢
The coil of the rear compartment lid release relay
The relay coil energizes and closes the relay contacts.
Power is supplied from the CONVENIENCE fuse through the following components:
?€¢
CKT 2040 (ORN)


?€¢
The now-closed relay contacts


?€¢
CKT 56 (BLK/WHT)


?€¢
The rear compartment lid release solenoid
The solenoid energizes and the rear compartment lid latch assembly releases the rear compartment lid.

Trunk release for 98 pont gp no power, can't find the fuse and the switch itself was checked and was good


Check trunk release solenoid for power and ground when applied from switch. If power and ground ok, then release solenoid is the problem in the trunk lock mechanism. If misssing power or ground, then electrical diagnostics will be required

Is there a fuse or relay or micro relay for the CHMSL on 98 sts


check the lt blue wire at upper lamp,(under trunk lid trim panel) for 12 volts when brake is applied. if no voltage,check same color wire at brake lamp switch for voltage.(by brake pedal).if no voltage replace stop lamp switch asm. if voltage is detected at rear by lamp then replace CHMSL asm.(center high mount stop lamp). this lamp is made of many LED's,if some work and some don't you will need to replace lamp asm. can be repaired by a trained GM tech, possibly. there is no seperate fuse or relay for this lamp,only a stop lamp fuse.

I need to remove the lock on the trunk of my 96 intrepid. The key is broken in it. What size socket do I need to remove the tumblem assembly? Thanks


the tumbler is usualy held in place by a clip made of spring steel. Pulling it downward from the back side of the tumbler will release the lock from the trunk lid.

Stuck in park position


check the brake switch and adjust or replace accordingly. It must be tripped for the car to be able to shift. It is behind the pedal.

See if you have a switch at brake pedal & test if so. Power one side all the time, power other side when brakes applied.

When we bought our car the only tail lights it had was the big one in the center, so i went to buy tail lights but they dont work when you step on the brakes if i remove them the brake light bar on the...


Check the connections going up from the body to the trunk lid. Right at the hinge point, the wires often break internally. If it's the ground wire for the centre light, it's getting it's ground through the tail lights which should cause the problem.
The other thing to check is the switch at the brake pedal. I think it's 2 seperate circuits right from the brake switch.
