    Trunk LIght on 2009 DTS?

    My old Deville had a Trunk Light. I just realized the 2009 DTS I picked up has no light in the trunk. Is it burned out or did it get dropped from the design?

    It's in the trunk.


    Sorry, couldn't resist.
    I hope they moved it to the lid. My DeVille's light was right under the front lip, where luggage tended to obscure it.

    Open the trunk... Look UP and UNDER ... about where the back of the back window is.
    There is a cutout 4 x 6 oval, about 8 inches towards the passengers side.

    That is where the light is.

    Pretty much the same spot as a DeVille's.

    Found it. Oddly enough the cutout for the trunk liner was still inplace so the light was hidden above the trunk liner and does not protrude through the liner. Normal discovery? Or could the trunk liner have been replaced before I bought the used car(Car fax was clean for accidents).
