Question about 1992 Buick Park Avenue

Trunk won't close.

Sometimes the sensors get out of alignment (I think) and the trunk won't close. Is there a way I can get this problem straightened out without taking it to the shop?

If you slam it closed (or someone else has), it will bend the bracket down so that the closing actuator will not engage nor will the latch. Check to see if its bent down. I had to take mine off and straighten it, as well as using new bolts and washers. then it worked fine.

Check it out!.....On the bottom portion of the latch where deck lid meets the "male portion of the latch....you will see a black, square "flap" of sorts. With one finger, lift up on this flap. Upon doing so, the electric motor will raise receiver back into position, allowing deck lid to be drawn down as it is supposed to.
If, however the system has been damaged, it may be necessary to repair/replace parts before normal operation can resume.

My trunk will not stay locked


If you have factory alarm on it its is the trunk latch for some reason needs to be adjusted. anything gets packed in the trunk and it was hard to close it will put it out of alignment. I also think its the electrical issues they have.it releases the latch if theres a serge in the system or batterie needs replacement or possibilty and or the alternator have it checked sounds,
Fun nylon but these cars trip out if the power is not all there.

Sometimes the lid get twisted. You can open the lid and with one arm pull down on the side that is up and using the other arm push up, twisting the lid a little. That should level it. There are also rubber stops that turn up and down that help adjust it. But I would try twisting it first since thats how it got missed aligned.

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier and the trunk latch won't click into place and close fully, therefore the trunk won't close fully.


yes that could be the problem. try this putt your key in to the lock and turn it to unlock it , check to see if latch is open ,while still holding the key in the unlock position close the trunk and relock it with the key while pushing down on the hood at the same time. replace the lock when you can .there is no quick fix for this unless u use a bungee cord for it .

I accidentally pulled the interior trunk release of 2008 volkswag


Try a screw driver,and release the trunk release at the same time and unsnap the latch,the latch thinks it is closed,because the latch never opened back up to allow the striker to go in it and trigger the latch to close,the latch is in closed mode,you will have to manually unlatch the latch sort of speak.

The trunk won't open w/ remote or elct. sw. only


Hello. Chances are that the Unlocking mechanism in the trunk is either out of alignment or broken. Take a close look at it. It is where the trunk lid actually latches and locks. See if it is loose, or bent, or broken.
