The motors never burn out in a cadillac ive had them since 69 its always the switch on top , hook up a hot wire and a ground wire from a car battery to where the switch hooks up to and the hold down will go up and down , get your money back for the motor if you can , the switch is about 75 dollars from the factory, i herd a lot cheaper at a ford dealer because they are the same switch they use in big ford cars. the switch has 1 screw and one 2 wire harness, just a thought , you must know where the switch goes because you took it off the old motor and put it on the new motor ,,right?

Window will not roll up or down . trunk will not shut completely


Two problems are simular but not related. The power window the door panel can be removed, theres screws behind the door opener handle. and on the bottm edge of the panel , under plugs in the ends on the door closer armrest handle. once their all removed the panel needs to be lifted up and off its hooks theres wires connected to the switches in the panel and they can be picked unlocked and unplugged, Once the wires are off the motor is in plain veiw and it can be unbolted with 3 10MM headed screws with it off reconnect the switch and turn on the car and work the window with the swich if the gear turns good and you can't hold it back the window regulater has come off the window or it's broken the gear drive in the motor has a clutch and it can fail too. Removing the screw that holds the gear into the motor the gear can be lifted out. the clutch has three plastic roolers and they can break and or change to mush. They can be bought at an auto parts store. A new motor sometimes doesn't come with the clutch and the gear as your suposed to move them to the new motor. So if you end up needing a new gear make sure the new motor has all the parts that you need.

My 92 eldo cadi trunk won't close it latches but the motor doesn't pull it down to close fully


There is a electric motor on the lower part of the trunk that usually goes bad. Not on the trunk lid but the trunk part. You can remove the assembly and take it apart so you can turn the latch all the way down , Once youy have done this you can put it back in place. Make sure you unplug the motor so it won't go up again, You should be able to use the release button inside.
