Question about 1996 Cadillac Seville CA Value

1 Answer

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 replace the motor, and what other electrical parts are involved other than just the motor that could be causing this drain? (Battery is drained within 4 hours).

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.

How to repair pull down motor on 1994 cadillac deville?


Thjese are kind of tricky systems #1 if someone has slammed the trunk closed this can break the motor drive transmission housing it is plastic #2 this system uses a limit switch so as the motor rises from being open it stops at the top and clicks the reversing switch then when it closes it latches against the pressure switch that starts the motion. ALL THESE SWITCHES ARE OBSOLETE only can get used but used on Oldsmobile (land yacht) 98 and cameros,firebirds hatch backs.

Trunk pull down


Inoperative trunk pull-down motors are very common on Cadillac. The sytem simply needs to be diagnosed. The most common causes are bad switches on the latch assembly (there are switches on both the body part of the latch and the trunk-lid part of the latch) or broken wires inside the wiring harness that connects the body with the trunk lid. Proper diagnosis required.

Cadillac 96 deville - Trunk won't close


Try spraying the inner portion of it with some WD40 or similar lubricant. It sounds like something must be stuck. After you spray it, keep working the key and pushing the remote until you get some results. Good luck. Let me know how you make out.

Trunk wont pull shut.


You have a pull down switch that activates the pull down motor for the trunk lid to close. The manufacture of this part supplies this to Ford & General Motors vehicles. You can go to a Cadillac dealership & purchase this part far cheaper than at Ford. I use to work at a GM dearlership & my neighboring Ford dealer would order this part from me for the cost of mine where less than the cost from Ford. Figure those guys out at Ford. No wonder they don't need a goverment bailout
