Trunk release works as intended when ignition is off and remote is used. when trunk is closed and ignition key is turned on, trunk opens and latch keeps clicking until key is turned off.


Hello James Squyres,

Of the 33 TSBs (tech service bulletins)...

I found nothin on your issue...

Going to the vehicle drawings... (I'm guessing you are considering keeping this beauty)...

Get the FACTORY+WORKSOP+MANUAL... I HIGHLY
recommend for drawing (exactly this issue) and easy secrets to get through those nasty UNIQUE Caddy tasks.. that NO body but your friendly CADDILAC Club might ALSO know...

Nevertheless...
your drawings are presently available on one of my favorite sites "BBB Industries: (see below, registration required).

Perusing the drawings...
The only source not shared with your manual ignition source appears to be through your "TRUNK RELEASE" function.. is sourced (without the ignition) through "THE TRUNK LID LATCH SWITCH"... (ground source).

I am thinking LATCHED (totally defective, replace) contacts there would cause your problem...

BUT... on further consideration...

The drawing show a total TRAVEL of the un-latched lock should completely open the ground circuit... reversing POLARITY of the motor and ready it for the LATCHING sequence...

To me...

It looks to be the trunk lock TRUNK-LID PULL DOWN MOTOR STRIKER SWITCHES... failing to release (change polarity) in the UP position...

Replace the "TRUNK-LID ADJAR" switch.
Everything SHOULD come up peaches...

As to why it is not an issue with manual control...
I'd need to be there with a Volt-Ohm Meter

(perhaps we could dialog)...

Happy hunting...

8/11/2016... post week-long silence

So... 9 DAYs later

little more dialog is not acceptable (?)
I'll go to my monolog:

If you don't know how to run a Volt-Ohm Meter
I'm wasting your time (GOOD DIGITAL $10).

Because of the POLARITY REVERSAL (to push the latch up (when radio-released))...
IS A GROND START SEQUENCE..!!

It is not reasonable to look beyond the mechanical contacts (which I ALREADY) noted... previously.

The full open motion
(at the end of the open cycle)...
Should push the contacts (to reverse polarity)... STOPPING THE UPWARD DIRECTION...
The battery contact (close sequence) is a BATTERY START SEQUENCE) is triggered by gentle push of the trunk lid into the LATCH.

It the travels down tightening the trunk-lid into place... and reversing the MOTOR POLARITY again at the FULL CLOSED POSITION

The ONLY thing that can keep the motor running is bad contact in the release switch... or (somebody) HAYWIRED it.

It would HAVE BEEN be nice to know if you UNDERSTAND the electro-mechanical nature of your lock assembly.

HAVE you done any rewiring (HAYWIRING) would be the PRIME CONCERN...

ELSE... It is the trunk latch contacts.

When last I looked ... those parts were still available...

and having spare parts for a collector quality car cannot be that DISTASTFUL...

I'd give it a TRY (I'm just saying)

Broken trunk latch


Unless you have rear folding seats (only an option, not standard equipment- 2 release handles, one on each side of the rear hat shelf by the rear door opening) then yes.

My 2001 mistubushi mirage trunk wont shut


make sure the interior release is not stuck in the up position and does not feel 'sloppy' then spray some WD-40 in the key hole and work the lock to make sure it is free. if that doesn't work take a small screwdriver and push it into the latch an the lid. If it catches the screwdriver then the latch needs to be adjusted closer to the hasp on the body of the car. Find and loosen the bolts that hold the latch in place just enough so they are finger tight then push it down some. re-tighten and test. If the latch does not catch the screwdriver then disconect the intereor release cable and see if that works. If not then you probably need a new latch.

Trunk wont close tight


This car should be equipped with a trunk closing motor. If they wear out they will not pull the trunk firmly closed. If you have a standard latch or other you can try to adjust it by 1) open trunk 2) loosen the two bolts that hold the latch to the trunk lid and moving the latch just slightly higher and retightening the bolts. A couple of tries should do it. Thanks for asking at Fixya.com.

Trunk is broken.


With the trunk open try putting the key in and turning so that the latch swings open. This may be the problem. The latch may be stuck closed. with the key turned make sure the latch is open if it is not then take a scrwedriver and pry on the latch with the key turned to open it. Then try to close the trunk. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. thanks.

Car trunk problem


Open the boot with the key and ask someone to activate the lever while you have a look on the latch in the boot. You should see the cable moving if not, it might be broken or just disconnected.
