Trunk pull down motor stuck in up position


Two things it could be , the striker motor needs replacing or the actuator on the latch is bad or damaged and needs replacing.. most common is the actuator due its a plastic very easily broken. its about the size of a quarter bolted to the latch and has a little 2 mm arm coming off of it that get broke off all the time.

Good luck

My trunk will not close


There is a possibility that the remote latch cable is stuck (lubrication is gone) . With a screwdriver, NOT the fingers, try to return manually the latch, to its open position (instead of the pull open position). If you push it too far, it will go into locked position, and when you pull down the trunk lid, it wont reach its normal closed position. In that case, pull the latch back open, with the remote lever. Should you manage to close the trunk properly, spray some WD40 or some lubricant on the latch assembly.

Trunk Latch will not pull closed.


The small switch is the trunk by the pull down motor with the flap that depresses down is at fault. That is what you call the truck pull down switch. You can take this part and show it to a Cadillac or Ford parts department sales person and get a replacement for you car. Ford uses the same part for their Lincolns and Crown Vic's. The part is made by the very same supplier for Ford & GM. Ford will sell this part at a much lower cost as well compared to GM

Trunk doesn't close all the way


Before going to a repair facility, check the fuse for 'convenience group' , the relay in the distribution box under the hood, the connector in the trunk, and the closing motor itself--sometimes they get loose on their brackets, and fall away from the metal closing loop on the trunk lid. Also check the metal closing loop on the trunk lid--sometimes they get loose and don't enter the closing motor mechanism at the right depth for the motor to capture it and secure it down.

There is an auto matic pull down thats in the trunk.If you look where it latches thats where it is..It might be bent over or it is stuck in the down position.The motor that pulls the trunk down in that latch might be broke or the gear that rotates it is not working..Thats where the problem is.I hope this helps you and Have a great night...You can also tell your wife its not her fault its just not working any more..
