Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 1992 oldsmobile 98 regency and the automatic trunk closer doesn't work. I purchased a new electric pull down motor and switch mechanism. I checked the wiring test procedure seems ok. The connector to the motor unit has constant 12V power from the solid orange wire and constant ground from the solid black wire but what is the 3rd wire for it is black with a thin yellow stripe. When I hook up the new trunk closer unit it pulls the latch all the way down and stops then doesn't do any more function. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Kevin M.

Where is the anchor hook i the trunk of a 98 caddy deville so i can bypass my automatic trunk?


Hello: The electric pull down assembly is the hook for the trunk to latch to. If the pull down assembly is not broken the a pull down switch may correct your problem, it is mounted on the side of the pull down assembly.

Hello. is there a way to disconnect the trunk pull down feature? if so then maybe mine is disconnected, before i assume the motor is bad


attach to the motor pulldown unit there is a electrical plug. check to see if this is plggged in and the the pull down motor assembly is making a good gound connection. also the problem could be the switch on the pull down unit which is a replacement item. if trunk was slam closed , it damages this switch.

Hello; Remove the trim around the latch check the electrical connectors, also check the fuse for the pull down. The pull down switch may be bad, its mounted on the side of the pull down assembly. It has a electrical connector. Thank you.

I have a 1990 oldsmobile 98 and every day i have to get a boost to start it. what's the problem


it is the automatic load leveler that pumps air into the back shocks to level the car so it rides better when there are lots of people or weight in it. it is in the frontof the car opposite the battery, just disconnect it. had the same problem on my 1990 olds 98.

The trunk motor won't work


Hi!!

Remove motor from trunk and test it using jumper wires from the battery.

You can get a used one for $20 at the junk yard or a new one at the dealer for about $80.

Does this car has power trunk?


If you mean automatic closing check at the latch area inside trunk and look for wiring going to a motor that would pull the trunk lid down when latched.I am almost sure only the 98 series had auto close function.
