Cant get trunk open on 1998 cadillac sts ,i tried the botton and key.neither which work,


Try spraying WD40 or PB Blaster into trunk lock cylinder. Let it sit for a while to work things loose, then keep wiggling the key while you try turning it gently. Work the key in and out of the cylinder to try and free up the tumblers. As for the electrical switch, check your owner's manual to see if there's a "Valet" switch or some other lockout located somewhere else in the car.

does the key turn the trunk lock?if not theres one issue right there.the other may be that the valet lever on trunk latch assy. may have inadvertantly been engaged if deck lid was slammed closed.the release solenoid will make noise when activated by fob or lever in car but because of valet being engaged cannot release latch.does key unlock glovebox?if not this may also be a valet key cut.contact nissan dealer to cut regular key.ive seen the slamming the deck lid scenario a million times as the valet lever takes hardly any effort to engage.good luck and let me know how you make out.

Hello: On the rear bumper, driver side lower portion you will see a square which you can flip open with the key you have. Once open you will see a lock cylinder, insert the key and turn. That will open the trunk. Inside the trunk you will see a handle, pull it and it will open the drivers door. That should do it.

The car door wont lock


This might be a shot in the dark, but check for a valet switch, possibly in the glove box. It might turn off the those functions.

What you will need to do is get the theft deterrent codes read.This will help in finding the problem.You will probably have a B 2960.The problem is usually the ignition lock cylinder.This reads the key and if it sees the correct code it allows fuel to the motor.What usually happens is the wires break from the ignition cylinder being turned on and off all the time.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I had the same problem with my STS. Go back through your programing menu and "check" remote start again. Somehow, mine defaulted to not allowing remote start feature. It was good to go as soon as I re-programmed it.
