Cadillac Seville The Trunk Lid Won't Close Due to Trunk Pull Down Switch Failure
Cadillac Seville Problem
Average Mileage: 75,666 mi (12,000 mi - 166,000 mi)
The motor was removed and I close the trunk myself. That was my solution. The self closer was a cool feature, but closing the trunk myself saved me a lot of money.
