    Trunk light does not work either. When I disconnected and then reconnected the battery cables, the units all work properly for 3-4 cycles. But then the trunk mechanism goes dead.

    Fuse is good. Remote works all functions except trunk. Trunk release on driver door does not work. The only way to open trunk is by inserting key. Disconnecting battery and reconnecting worked for a short time, then stopped working again.

Check and replace the fuse located underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip the fuse box cover lid over and you will find a diagram that shows what fuse controls which component. Pull the trunk fuse out and replace it with the same number fuse. Also make sure that the battery in your remote is brand new.

Chances are the motor is failing, or possibly the wiring is faulty. The unit will have to be troubleshot to figure out what is going on. First thing to do, is get at the motor, and see if it's getting voltage when the button is engaged, then go from there. If it's getting voltage but not working, it's bad. If it's not getting voltage, check the power to the button switch and check the switch. If the switch is good, the fault may be a grounded or broken feed wire, which sometimes has to be parallel'd to be fixed, since it's difficult to run the wire like the factory did.
A Chilton manual might help you figure this out.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Trunk will not open using the release button inside a 2004 lincoln towncar


Are you hearing the trunk solenoid engage when you press the button? Check for a blown fuse. Have someone listen at the trunk when you press the button. Check the trunk solenoid for a loose wire or it could be a bad trunk solenoid. If the trunk won't open easily with the key, it could be a sticky trunk lock mechanism.

1994 buick lesabre trunk lock-how can I open the trunk without using a key. the key doesn't work although it open the doors to the car. is there a release button somewhere? we do not have the r


If it has the electric trunk release, the button could be in the glove box.
Otherwise you may have to remove the back seat to gain entry to the trunk.

Trunk won't open with either remote but will open with trunk button on drivers door


I would check the owners manual or with Cadillac - its possible the remotes lost part of the signal and need to be reset. It sounds like the receiver is not getting a signal from them by using that button.
Could be the receiver too.

My 2003 Saturn Ion remote trunk release won't


Check to make sure the button on the trunk latch is turned from manual unlock...they made that feature so only the key will work to open the trunk that way if someone breaks in the front of your car they can't hit the trunk release and get into the trunk...may be the same thing for your remote. Hope that helps.

Trunk latch pull down


You could try setting release to work manually. I have had the same problem. Take tne motor off set the catch clip at the right height. This should work with no cost.
