Have a 1997 Buick La Sabre & the trunck will not close checked the fuse box & the fuse is good


Check the latch - it may be either broken or may accidentally be in the closed position while the trunk lid is open. Look at the latch to make sure it is working when you have someone press the trunk lid release.

Trunk lid wont close down


Check to make sure there is nothing obstruction the actual trunk lid from closing. If not, check to make sure the arms holding the lid on aren't damaged, and that they have the full range of movement. If not, then check that the latching mechanism isn't broken or obstructed.

Trunk does not completely close


The trunk latch contains a switch which closes when the trunk lid is pushed closed by hand, then this switch sends power to the trunk lid pull down motor which then finishes closing the trunk lid. Often the switch or motor will go bad and the whole thing will stop working. It takes a little testing to figure out which part is at fault but they are usually quite easy to fix.

1995 lincoln town car trunk will not automatically shut


There is a black flat switch handle immediately to the right side of the latch. Press that switch handle and the latch will make a noise and rise slightly. Then when you shut the deck, the switch activates and recesses, pulling the deck lid down to the fully closed position.

Hope this helps

2005 Volkswagon Jetta Trunck Problems


I had the trunk problem, it would open if you use the key, but took a few tries to get it shut. Also the gas cover would not close. Both were covered by warranty because I was just under 50,000 miles.
