Don't replace it until it actually fails. Also the button is seldom if ever the problem the power motorized latch release actuator is the usual problem at the latch.

Trunk will not stay up

2003 BMW 745i - My trunk goes up alright but then it comes back down without me pushing the button that is supposed to make it come down. In order to unload groceries or anything you have to hold the trunk up yourself. What fixes this?

How do i prevent accidental trunk opening on 2009 camry

To prevent accidental opening of the trunk caused by an accidental pressing of the "OPEN TRUNK" button on your keyfob, you can pull the cover that hides the wiring harness on the trunk (you can buy replacement plastic retaining tabs at an auto parts store if you break one) and look for the wiring harness. I cut the wire controlling the electronic trunk solenoid and soldered in momentary pushbutton that goes to the outside of the trunk. To open the trunk, I have to depress the pushbutton on the trunk and then press the "OPEN TRUNK" button on my keyfob. I also soldered in a bypass switch in parallel with the pushbutton in case I want to disable the extra security I get by having a pushbutton. It will cost you about $15 in parts (get a high quality, weather rated pushbutton) and about 3 hours of time.

I repalced the headlight switch but still do not have headlights. My trunk button also does not work. Some issues with dash lights as well.

Try checking the fuses, the seperates fuses and the maxi fuses which are the big master fuses located in the engine compartment.

Town & country trunk will not open automatically

With the trunk open take a look at the lock mechanism (have someone activate it a fes times and watch what it does) it has an electric solenoid that works the lock if it has become disconnected, re-connect it if it is connected, spray working mechansim down with wd40 or other good lube spray. If operation is still not restored then the solenoid has gone bad and needs repalcement.
