did it quit making the noise when you lightly push down on the trunk? most people slam these trunks and your not suppose to you are only to put light pressure on them and they pull it closed theirself.. you might check your relays under the hood and look in the box lid to see which one it is.. if this is not the problem you might have to replace the motor to the latch .. you might check with a test light to see if there is power to the motor first though .. thanks and holler if you have more Jerry .

under the trunk lip (directly where the latch goes into the lock jaws; remove the carpet so that you can see the side of the trunk latch; on the latch jaws (bottom) is a switch that contacts the latch (top) this switch is broken or, mis-aligned it opens (stops the trunk motor) when the latch contacts it.

Testimonial: "Thanks much for your speedy and knowledgeable reply."
i pulled entire lower assembly off, removed motor casing and found that the plastic ring gear that pulls the truck down was stripped. I then pulled the whole thing apart using simple tools and turned the ring gear by hand to about 3/8 inch above the full down position. I then reassembled and re-installed without the switch and without the motor. Trunk closes like a normal trunk now (no pull down obviously. I am not a mechanic and it only took about an hour and two beers, no money. 93 lincoln town car.
Note: you will need torx bits but that is the only thing "specialized" in the operation
