My truck was also doing the same thing. I cleaned under the switch where it latches with brake cleaner fluid and now it works great
Trunk will not pull all the way down, however it locks

No solution. Cadillac dealer "jerry-rigged" latch to keep trunk closed. Supposedly, part needed was no longer available? It has been fine since but automatic trunk release no longer works.

Trunk pull down motor kept running, so I removed the fuse (located in trunk on left side). I use the trunk now like it doesn't have this feature.
