There is a small switch near the trunk latch or in the trunk latch, you will have remove the connector from that switch and put a little wire jumper in it so the body control module (BCM) thinks the truck is closed, otherwise just remove the bulb, but that requires pulling the instrument cluster out.

My 97 honda civic has been in an accident before now my trunk doesn't close completely and water gets in my trunk how do I fix that

The fix depends on what was bent - the deck lid or the back of the car. To find out, clean the rubber seal with brake fluid on a rag, then dry the seal with another clean rag. Put a small amount of motor oil on your finger tip and put a small line of oil on the top of the seal, making sure you have enough oil on the seal to wet it all the length of the seal.
Now close the deck lid GENTLY. Open the lid and inspect the surface of the lid that contacted the seal, as well as the seal. The area of the lid that is dry is where the lid and seal are not contacting.
If you cannot determine where there is oil or not, you can try putting a small amount of fine ground dirt on top of the oil before closing the lid. If you can see bends in the deck lid surface, replacing the lid should fix the problem. If the deck lid is straight, then you'll need to have a body shop fix the car ( expensive). It is also possible the seal is flat, torn, or just worn out - in which case replacing the seal will cure your problem.
Hope this helps!!

I pushed the trunk release button without realizing the trunk hadn't shut yet while I was closing the convertible top. Now the "closing" light is still on and the car hasn't completed...

If you can open the trunk with the key, do so. Then disconnect the battery ground cable for about 15 seconds, and reconnect it. Maybe that will clear the ECM and allow the roof to close and reset the light. Then close the trunk.
Good luck...

1995 lincoln town car trunk will not automatically shut

There is a black flat switch handle immediately to the right side of the latch. Press that switch handle and the latch will make a noise and rise slightly. Then when you shut the deck, the switch activates and recesses, pulling the deck lid down to the fully closed position.

Hope this helps
