    I have worked on the electrical release solenoid for the above...just to completely burn it out. I blows the fuse every time. This is a hard-to-find part for me. Are there other GM part #'s that will work like OEM?

    If your blowing the fuse you have a short to ground.
    Do you have an ohm meter?
    Disconnect the wiring at the release solenoid.
    New fuse
    Push the release button, does the fuse blow?
    If yes, there is a short to body ground somewhere between the push button and the solenoid.
    If the fuse does not blow, then, as you suspect, you need a new solenoid.
