Question about 1992 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

Hi-I have a 1992 Cad. Eldorado with a remote trunk release feature. It no longer works. Also, there is a button in the glove compartment that releases the trunk also which does not work. In the trunk mounted behind the back seat there is an extensive amount of electronic hardware. I do notice that there is a small electoinc box that I hear a clicking sound in when I hit the remote trunk release. It has number 084-2c on it. Could this be the activation unit & may be defective?

Most...note the word most of the release units are mounted directly to the latch assy. Some are remotly mounted and use a release cable. Check near the latch for the release mechanism.
The clicking of the box is a good thing that means power is making it back that far. You did not mention the location of the box but if it is near the latch then it is most likely part of the mechanism. If it is mounted away from the latch then it is a module and wires should come out of it and run up the trunk to the release. if in doubt...pull out the trunk latch after marking the location of its mounting. Looking at the back side of the latch should make things clearer as to how the release works. With it out you could check for power at the release. If power is there you will need a new release. (kinda sounds like your problem)
Good luck!

Can not open trunk on a pontiac soltice. No clicking sound from remote or switch in glove box fuses are ok


The rear compartment lid release system consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Folding top cover actuator
• GMLAN serial data link
• Keyless entry transmitter
• Rear compartment lid ajar switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Rear compartment lid release switch
• Remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
• Trunk fuses
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release System Operation
The rear compartment lid can be released by operating the rear compartment lid release switch or pressing the rear compartment lid release button on the keyless entry transmitter. When the rear compartment lid release switch is operated, the rear compartment lid release switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) is switched to ground. The BCM receives the rear compartment lid release switch input and applies ground to the trunk release relay control circuit. This energizes the trunk release relay coil, closing the switch side contacts, allowing battery voltage to be applied to the rear compartment lid release actuator and folding top cover actuator, releasing the buttresses and opening the rear compartment lid. Ground for the rear compartment lid release switch is provided at G300. The rear compartment lid ajar switch, rear compartment lid release actuator, and folding top cover actuator are provided ground at G301. The rear compartment lid will not release until the vehicle speed is zero and in park.

Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B3265 01 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Battery
DTC B3265 06 : Trunk Relay Output Short to Ground or Open

Do you know what a relay is an how it works ? TRUNK release relay located in the underhood fuse / relay box.

My trunk won't open. What's wrong


Hi Annette, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Annette, if you are already able to get inside the trunk, remove the lever that goes to the lock actuator because the actuator may be locked up. Then see if it will open. NOTE: If the lock solenoid is mounted to the latch this will not work. If that doesn't help, then see if you can remove the bolts that hold the latch to the trunk and open the trunk that way so you can see better what the problem could be.

Power trunk not opening trunk


Check the release solenoid for power, open the trunk and have someone press the remote release button, does it make a kind of clunk noise at the latch area? If not check the fuses and the power to the release solenoid in the trunk.
