Trunk Lid Won't Close Due to Trunk Pull Down Switch Failure on Cadillac Seville

The trunk pull down switch may fail causing the trunk lid not to close completely. Our technicians tell us that the failed switch can be replaced without changing the complete pull down motor assembly.

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.
Trunk lid will not close.
trunk pull down does not operate. must slam trunk to close. removed switch on top of motor, applied direct current to motor, extends and retracks normally. only red wire with white tracer coming into top switch has power. is this fault due to switch? motor is good in both directions.

went to close it one day and it wouldnt pull down the trunk lid, i have to leave it outside for a few days and i am worried about it raining, this car looks nice, and was well taken care of from an elderly couple, it has been garaged ever since i have owned it, for 2 years, and i rarely drive it, but i have had a host of problems from front brake calipers not releasing, to electrical problems, the starter went out, and now this, wtf!!! For a car that sits in the garage and looks pretty, it sure as hell is starting to really piss me off, i was hoping you would have a solution other than a gas can and a match!!!! And I forgot to mention the cracked intake manifold, how the hell does that happen when it just sits in the garage???
