Fiat stilo boot open sensor

I think i have broke a sensor in the boot lock mechanism, i was having trouble opening the boot , so i got the manual out and read that you can manually open from inside boot through the small aperture with a screwdriver, tried this and it didnt work so i googled answer..turned out the onboard computer settings were changed so boot was locked so i unlocked now its fine but the boot open warning is now on permanently on dashboard so i think i have broke the sensor,,,how do i fix this

You may have broken it or bent or wire connector is off, you will need to locate the latch and may need to remove it and see if the switch is bent or connector is off, sometimes it gets bent or broken for you trying to open the hood (boot) with screwdriver.
