Question about 1992 Cadillac DeVille
Out of nowhere, the mechanism that fully closes and seals my trunk has stopped working. The trunk will still latch, and it seems this is a good enough seal to prevent water from getting into the trunk, however it doesn't fully close and causes the "Trunk" light to be constantly on whenever I'm driving. Any quick fixes for this, or should I just take it in to have it checked?

There is a electric motor on the lower part of the trunk that usually goes bad. Not on the trunk lid but the trunk part. You can remove the assembly and take it apart so you can turn the latch all the way down , Once youy have done this you can put it back in place. Make sure you unplug the motor so it won't go up again, You should be able to use the release button inside.

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
