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.

How do you get the trunk of a 1993 Buick park avenue to close?

If you have an automatic release like I had on a 1994 Buick P.A. and it stopped working and would not close, I had to replace the latch assembly to make it a manual by getting a used one from the salvage yard. The trunk still closes today.

How do you get the trunk of a 1991 buick park avenue to close?

Remove the power trunk release, it may be stuck and holding the latch to the open position. I had same problem and found that if I use the key to unlock power lock then closed trunk - it worked.

Why did the trunk motor on a 1991 Park Avenue suddenly stop working and now the trunk won't latch?

I have a 1992 Buick Park Ave. My trunk did the same thing. You need to go to the GM dealer and order or buy a trunk motor switch. They are only $18.00 and will take you only 30 minutes or less to install. The switch is a little black colored rectangular box shaped thing, with 2 long screws bolting it up next to your trunk closer motor. Without the above, you won't be able to close the trunk unless you "jerry rig" the trunk latch. Save yourself lots of it the right way! Doc..

What might cause the trunk to pop on its own on a 1989 Buick Park Avenue?

Can you switch to a regular trunk latch from a motorized trunk latch on a Buick park ave?

my switch went out leaving my trunk in the "up" position as the motor never activated to pull it down, but the motor was still fine. Instead of replacing it i just used two "jump wires" as in wires with alligator clips on both ends and i applied power just long enough to lower to the desired position to keep dust and water out of my trunk you may find this cheaper then replacing it. if that doesn't work putting in a latch u bolt in place of the motor is possible but a little know how may be required to convert it with lining it up in proper placement etc.
