Your jock may be latched in closed position with lid open, I suggest you look at latch and see if lockarm is blocking it. If so use screw driver to pull down on lockarm in latch while unlocking with key or popper. some times u can reset lockarm by pulling on emergency unlock handle if so equipped. good luck

    If lock is stuck in open position, First i suggest using screw driver to push it in and see if it latches, if it does then try method i gave earlier to unlock if latch is working then lockarm is not reaching strikearm in this case i would suggest you look at strike arm and see if it is bent up/down depending if it is mounted on body/ deck lid

Trunk light will not turn off


Trunk lights usually turn off through the latch which is located in the trunk lid. It would be located to the inside of the trunk under the license plate. There should be some wires going to the mechanism. You can open the trunk and use a screwdriver to activate the latch and simulate what happens when the trunk is shut. Move the latch back and forth a little and see what happens. There may be a bad connection or faulty latch mechanism.

I'm looking for the fuse for the trunk for a 94 park ave my trunk lid won't shut and I believe its the fuse I show I have no power to the trunk.If you could please help me and let me know witc


you might try lubricating the trunk latch with a silicone spray or wd-40 and unlocking it with the key while it is open. There is a chance there is a small broken spring in the latch that is not pulling it over to full unlock position and when you tried to shut the trunk it is actually already in the locked position.

2010 Town & Country trunk won't shut


When you pull the trunk handle back towards yourself to open the trunk, it may be sticking in that position, so give the handle a tap to pop it back into its original position. Then shut the trunk and see if it has latched.
