Hello. Remove the cover on the bottom of the trunk where the latch is(pull down motor assembly) On the drivers side of the pull down assembly you will see a black switch. It has one electrical connector and one screw holds it on. Carefully note how it is mounted. This is a high failure rate item and I think it is a dealer only item.

SOURCE: 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

How can I close the trunk manually?


Sounds like the pull-down motor is not working. You may need to disconnect the latch and remove the motor or fix it to get the trunk lid completely closed.

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 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.

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.

1997 Cadillac Deville Concours Trunk will not close!


latch mechanism is probably motorized. Gently pushing the trunk lid down slides the lid/latch bar into the mechanism. this pushes a tab inside the motorized latch and the drive motor pulls the lid down tight and secure. you may be able to test the latch mechanism by sliding a pen or screwdriver into the latch groove to simulate the lid coming down. if you see the motor drive engage, and pull down the tool, you at least know this is working.
