SOURCE: my trunk on my eldorado 87 wont catch to close

sounds like the the trunk pull down assy is not raising. On the pull down is a black little piece of plastic ( part of the switch ), Flip up plastic to see if motor wll raise pull down, then the trunk can be closed normally. If it doesn't raise, further diagnosis will be required in the pull down motor area

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

Where is the "Interior Relay Panel" for an 1989 Cadillac Eldorado? The power trunk will not close and I need to check that fuse.


Before you go looking for the fuse check to make sure there is power going to the electric motor that raises and lowers your trunk lid, If you have power and if you have ground it is a burnt out motor and needs to be replaced. However the relay should be in the interior relay panel against the firewall on the interior of the car behind the dashboard. Until you find the solution you can always take the motor out and turn it to the closed position and your trunk will close like any normal non electric trunk.

Sounds like the blend door actuator which diverts air from defrost,to bi-level,vent etc. It's vacuum driven and when it fails, it's usually an indication of a vacuum leak. To trace the leak, start the car, turn the AC on high and starting at the firewall in front of the passenger's side, trace the vacuum lines backward until a leak is detected. If no leak is detected, it's very likely that the blend door actuator is faulty and needs either repair or replacement. Best of luck.
