if you have a pass though in the back seat, open it. look in the trunk area with a flashlight for the trunk release up above. it is a glow in the dark handle.

There is a switch in the glove compartment that may be switched over to valet parking . If it is your trunk will not open.

I took mine to a cad dealer lin san diego and they used rod thru back seat to open. When i got back home and looked on internet and the told me about valet switch in glove compartment. I must have hit it accidentally. three service people at cad never mentioned that at all. By the way when the valet switch is on your garge door opener will not work. So much for the experts. Jerry, mark etc thank you much. It would be to long story to tell you what i went through to get clothes out throght little hole in back seat. Thanks again. one more time the internet is a powerful tool with a lot of very smart people. Bill SAn Diego

My trunk won't open in my 2005 sts, I'm a mechanic but yet I'm stumped I know about the valet switch in the glove box and once it is on you can't open your trunk or your gas cap and ext. But I've flicked it on and off many of times and yet nothing, so I worked my way to the wiring went all the way through and couldn't find anything so then I thought fuses of course! and to my luck of course that's not it. Once I open the trunk and the trunk lid is up it will click like it's supposed to when I press the button on my fob/trunk relese. Once I close the truck nothing happens. The fob and trunk relese won't work so I'm stumped just seeing if anyone has an answer.

Thank you. What an easy fix. I pressed all buttons in my car while trying to figure out why it won't start (found out my ground wire has been severed so I am now off to replace the ground, hopefully). I was going to get my daughter to crawl through the tiny opening to get the trunk popped open. Thank you comes from her as well.

How can I open the trunk from my Cadillac deville 2003?
