I think the latch is adjustable. Look at the latch and see if you can tell if it has slipped. If there is a clean space and the rest of the latch is dirty or discolored, move the latch part back to cover up the clean part. This is probably the right location for the latch. You may have to loosen the bolts a little to move the latch but no need to take them out.

Trouble with trunk lid staying closed goes down but comes back up


Please make sure your keys are not in the trunk because there is a safety mechanism that will not allow the trunk to stay closed if the keys are detected in the trunk. The other issue will be if the hold down mechanism is not pulling the trunk completely closed once the trunk engages the lock. You will then have to have it serviced to make sure the pull down motor is operating.

1996 Cadillac Deville trunk pull down motor continues to pull electricity after trunk is closed (does not do so when trunk is open). The pull down motor works correctly other than that. Do we need to...


There is a switch that lets the motor know that the trunk is closed all the way. This switch may be faulty or not adjusted correctly. Find the wire that feeds the switch and check it with an ohm meter to see if it is working.

Trunk does not completely close


The trunk latch contains a switch which closes when the trunk lid is pushed closed by hand, then this switch sends power to the trunk lid pull down motor which then finishes closing the trunk lid. Often the switch or motor will go bad and the whole thing will stop working. It takes a little testing to figure out which part is at fault but they are usually quite easy to fix.

It wont latch on n shut.


Good afternoon! The cadillac you have uses two switches to control the automatic pull down feature. If the trunk was unintentionally slammed it can break one or both switches. The switch in the decklid (or trunk door)controls the light in trunk and is also a input to the lower switch at motor to signal trunk closing. Even though the light in trunk works this does not mean close signal portion is ok. The limit switch(mounted to pulldown motor unit is the other switch. This switch has a small plastic lever,a even smaller little tab,and has one screw retaining it to pulldown unit. I have replaced the switch on the pulldown unit 90 percent of the time. As i said earlier there is a chance both switches could be damaged. Hope this information helps you!
