    Sounds like the switch it bad. (That little button you pushed down on)
    I replaced mine (94 DeVille), Its fairly easy and if I remember right the switch is only about $15

    I have the same problem on my 91 DeVille. I thought it may require replacing the whole mechanism. Is the switch you discussed, just a part of the mechanism? Was it a stock item at the Cad dealer or available at a parts store?
    Appreciate you input.
