There is no fuse as there is no power to it. It's a cable. If it is sticking you may want to oil it, latch. It may be just stuck.

    There is a electrical part for the latch. It has a "Trunk Lock Solenoid", which is what my mechanic buddy determined is not getting power.Aside from that, I am now starting to suspect the actual latching mechanism may be broken. When turning the key , I see no action at all with the latch,as if something inside the mechanism is amis

There is a motor on the bottom latch that goes bad. Make sure that the fuses are all good. They can be found on the driver's side left of steering column. On the cover if you flip it over will have a list of the fuses and what they go too. If they are all good, the motor is most likely at fault.

My boot wont close fully


  • Press down on your trunk, and have somebody release your trunk's release mechanism from inside your car simultaneously. These systems can become jammed but can sometimes be released if a gentle downward pressure is applied to your trunk while the mechanism is being activated. If this is the problem, apply some lubricant.
  • Clean the latch and the area where it connects to the chassis. If dirt or debris has become lodged here, it can stop the latch from connecting properly. It's a good idea to vacuum the area to ensure no small bits of gravel have become trapped and stopped the mechanism from securing properly.
  • Examine the latch and the area where it connects to the body of the car. Either of these might have become bent out of shape or damaged in some other way if the trunk has been shut with an obstruction in the way. If this is the case, contact your vehicle's manufacturer or a local garage to find a replacement if the elements cannot be repaired.
Check the latch mechanism, it may have accidentally already be in the closed or lock position. If it is, you will have to pry down on the latch tangs with a screw driver while pulling latch handle to the open position.
Latch could also be seized, in that case , use a thin oil liberally on latch mechanism, and work the mechanism open and shut closing and opening with screw driver and boot handle.

HOW TO TURN OFF THE TRUNK OPEN ALARM



The 2012 Camry's trunk lid has a 'trunk open' alarm that shows up on the instrument panel as 'door open' red icon. It also turns on the door open beeping sound so long as the trunk lid is open. This is normal and is usually not a problem..

However, if you should need to carry a large item in the trunk and can't close the lid, be prepared to listen to the incessant door open sound with no means to turn it off!!

The trunk lid alarm 'switch' is operated by the trunk latch when you open or close the lid. By manually operating the latch to it's closed position, you can temporarily silence the alarm.

Using a small screwdriver, you can easily press the actuator and turn the alarm off.

Picture 1: trunk lid latch in the OPEN (Alarm ON) position.

**WARNING**
YOU MUST RETURN THE ACTUATOR TO THE OPEN POSITION (ABOVE)
(ALARM ON) BEFORE YOU CLOSE THE LID. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY DAMAGE THE LATCHING MECHANISM
**WARNING**

DO THIS WITH THE TRUNK OPEN LEVER OR WITH THE REMOTE TRUNK OPEN BUTTON.

Picture 2: trunk lid latch in the CLOSED (Alarm OFF) position.

IF YOU TRY TO CLOSE THE LID WITH THE LATCH IN THIS POSITION YOU MAY DAMAGE OR BREAK THE LATCHING MECHANISM

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.

Trunk does not latch all times


The trunk latching mechanism may need to be lubed, it may not be completely latching when you close the trunk. Try use some WD-40 on it, if that doesn't work you might need to replace the latching mechanism.

Trunk doesn't close all the way


Before going to a repair facility, check the fuse for 'convenience group' , the relay in the distribution box under the hood, the connector in the trunk, and the closing motor itself--sometimes they get loose on their brackets, and fall away from the metal closing loop on the trunk lid. Also check the metal closing loop on the trunk lid--sometimes they get loose and don't enter the closing motor mechanism at the right depth for the motor to capture it and secure it down.

I have a 2002 chevy cavelier, i used the button on the dash to open the trunk, now the trunk will not latch when i close it.


Try pushing the button under the dash back into its normal 'unactivated' position, and see if the trunk will latch shut. It could be a sticky latch mechanism in the trunk, which some silicone lubricant or WD40 might help to free up. Check also that the latch has not actually returned to the 'locked' position prior to trying to close the trunk. That would definitely stop you from closing the trunk properly! Try unlocking the trunk latching mechanism again.

Rear trunk wont close, power trunk wont close mechanisms seem to be fine just wont latch


You can adjust the trunk lid by loosening the bolts at the hinges. If that wont work then there is a micro switch incorporated within the trunk latch. You will need to replace the entire latch unit unfortunatly.
