Have the same problem with mine. Lent the car to a friend and he did not relize the trunk was power assisted and kept slamming it down breaking the latch and sensor. Now the trunk will not close.. Am ordering a manual converson kit today from Strutmasters who I also ordered replacement struts.. Good luck

If the 94 LeSabre trunk does not have a remote release, check the rear sear to see if the back is removable, to gain access to the trunk. If there is no access, then either a locksmith will need to pick the trunk or you will have to drill the trunk.

you can usually open hood latch with a long screwdriver by going thru front grill, and pushing with end of screwdriver on the latch where the cable attaches. failing that, go to local fire dept. they have a special tool for opening hoods that will not do damage to vehicle but will get it open

I BELIEVE that is on the left side of the trunk behind the trunk liner access hole

Need more information. Is the latch behind the grill broken? Or is it the latch operated from inside the vehicle? If it's the latter you can remove the latch mechanism and pull on the cable using pliers or vise grips.

Open the door and look where the latch is there should be a black lever push it down and it should unlock the door.

You can gain access to the bulb from the trunk?

There are several fuse boxes. In the engine compartment drivers side and passenger side , Another is located in the trunk on drivers side. In your glove box there should be spare fuses fuse boxes are in the trunk on the left on the 94 caddy.

Does it work from the outside with the key? That way it will make easier to get to the latch to see if you can get it work. I had the opposite problem in my 94, the hatch was open and the latch wouldn't close. I took the inner panel off (just Phillips screws) and the plate underneath that covers the latch. I used a lot of WD40 and worked the latch back and forth by hand and got it freed up so it works properly. That was 9+ months ago and it still works just like it should. Not sure if this will work for a latch that is stuck closed. I'm assuming that you have already checked your fuses to make sure there is power going to the latch. Hope this is some help with your problem. Good luck.

The amp on my 94 concord is behind the carpeting in the trunk on the drivers side wall.

Inside the glove box there's a yellow button you push

If it is just the inside handle broken off you can pull the cable with a pair of pliers. If it is in the middle, you should be able to reach up from underneath and cut the cable and then pull the inside cable. If the latch end has pulled off, you may be able to trip the latch from underneath, or take the grill out and unbolt the latch.

If your car has a power close mechanism like my 91 Park Ave used to I would recommend taking it to a body shop and have them weld the striker in place. The pull down mechanism is so finely balanced that if you slam the lid a little too hard it will throw the alignment off (between the latch and the striker)and the lid will not close or not close properly. In my case the lid would open at the most inopportune moment, usually on the highway. You should still be able to use the remote entry to open the lid, however I haven't got around to reconnecting mine. . I am a "do-it-yourselfer". I will try to fix almost anything. The power trunk latch on my mom's 94 stopped pulling the trunk lid down so I assumed the motor was bad. It was not the motor. It was the switch. I bought the trunk lid switch from the dealer, installed it and it has been working perfectly ever since. . Welding is not necessary. My 94 power close motor failed. I didn't care for the feature to begin with, so I manually turned the motor gear into the closed position, and now I just slam the trunk like any normal person. The open switch still works, but if it didn't, I could just use the key.
