See if you can make the latch work by just using a screw driver in the slot to lock it, then open it with the key. If that works ok, you will need to raise the striker and align it to the latch.

SOURCE: 2005 sunfire trunk won't close
this happened all the time on my 03, take two plyers, one in each hand and put them both onto the u-bolt (the part that the latch latches to) and pull up then try and close the trunk, sometimes the latch pushes that ubolt platform down so it cant grab

Mine also had this problem within the first few months of ownership. I took it to the dealership and they said it was a "known issue" with the latching mechanism. They used some type of tool to pull the latch forward and it worked like a charm. It was free of charge at a Pontiac Dealership. Hope this helps.

You may have inadvertently locked the latch when putting the plastic piece back on look at the latch mechanism and where the latch locks on the bar put a screw driver in the latch mechanism and then operate the lat to open it should open up then try shutting the trunk lid do it with the plastic piece off first to be sure thats the problem because if you have the plastic piece on you may make it nearly impossible to open it up. Then if it works put the plastic piece back on then make sure the latch is open and then close it does it work? if yes you did it if not write back to me for more help. Thanks for using fix-ya.
