is it the electric pul down that isn't operating.
If it is and you cant get a new one, remove it from the car, remove electric motor( the gear on the trunk hold down tends to break, it is plastic).
Disassemble from the top metal plate(2 screws) raise it up and inspect the gear, if missing teeth just hold the gear and rotate the trunk hold down it will lower. Re install in car.
You may have to adjust the heigh to get the trunk to shut correctly just raise or lower the hold down(you can do this while it is in the car)
try from inside the trunk
If the trunk is actually closed, sounds like a faulty sensor
it has to boxes under the hood and one in the trunk
The 1997 Cadillac trunk fuse location is dependent upon the type and model of the Cadillac. The trunk fuse will be in the fuse box. The location should be listed on the inside cover of the fuse box.
Latch stuck in locked position? Electric "pull down" not working?
In the trunk, right hand side behind carpeting. The radio controller is in the dash. The actual tuner and amplifier are in the trunk.
IF IT WON'T LATCH WHEN YOU CLOSE IT, THE PROBLEM IS THE SWITCH THAT IS MOUNTED ON THE MOTOR. THE SWITCH HAS A FLAT PLASTIC ACCUATOR.PRESS DOWN ON IT TO HEAR IF IT CLICKS. YOU CAN GET ONE AT A BUICK DEALER CHEAPER THEN CADILLAC,ABOUT $19.00. REGARDS PAUL G

how do you open gas and trunk lids when button will not work or trunk key
i believe this to be on the passenger side if not the driver side of the trunk you must remove the side carpet corner by unscrewining the little knobs upper corners
It is in case you get stuck in the trunk. If you do then you just have to pull the lever and it will pop the trunk from the inside.
