Trunk closing mechanism

Check the lever-operated microswitch that senses the latch. My solenoid would not pull the trunk down because the microswitch wasn't working. It was only like $ 27 for the switch, but because it had to be back-ordered, I went ahead and sprayed it with electronical contact cleaner and actuated it several dozen times, and it started working again. It worked for about three more years, until I sold the car.

Ditto after testing it on the bench, I replaced that switch on my 91 and BAM, it worked beautifully from then on, the dealer has the part! Mike

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

I just repaired the one on my 91 Eldo. Took it all apart and cleaned it and roughed up all of the contacts and it works once again. I didn't want to wait for the dealer to get me a new one!

I took mine apart and cleaned it and it worked for a while then finally gave out again so I just adjusted the lock so I could shut it manually. I could not justify $250 for a trunk motor.
