How do I get the trunk sensor to shut off on the dash?


Close the trunk.... Just kidding

this might sound odd but it sound like the sensor that sees the trunk as closed is either mis adjusted or faulty.

spray a squirt of penetrating oil like wd40 into the receiver that secures the trunk lid. For example the lid should have a loop or square of metal that when the trunk lid is closed joins with the locking mechanism.

Shoot a a squirt of we 40 into the locking mechanism and see if the light goes out.

Is the boot light staying on? If it is then the switch is faulty!

Buick lucerne trunk latch sensor


There is a small plastic part on the pull down motor that comes in contact with the trunk lid latch. It is most likely broken off.

Dash light looks like a car with trunk open is lit up. All doors and trunk are secure. What is the cause?


The trunk lid is not closed tightly enough....or the trunk lid switch is not properly adjusted.
Try closing the trunk lid a little harder once to see if it works,,,or have someone push down hard there while you watch the panel light.


Hopes this helps

Audi A3, trunk warning light flashing


The sensor is in the locking mechanism, alot of vw and audis have this problem with the hoods and the trunks, you have to remove the panel where the mechanism is and disconnect the cable and leave it disconnected, the light should turn off

Back lights or dash light don't not work


I had the exact same problem with my 94 Honda Accord Lx. The fuse for the dash lights and tail lights blew and when I replaced it, it blew again. After a couple more tries, we gave up and took it to a honda repair place and they did a diagnostic for about $50. What they found was the wiring to the trunk was frayed and touching the other wires. They said its a common problem after years of opening and closing the trunk. I had noticed that the trunk light on the dash would sometimes flicker so it makes sense to me. They removed the wiring harness for the trunk, and replaced the fuse and now the lights work fine. And to replace the trunk wiring harness would have cost $60 but I can live without lights in the trunk for now. I am just happy to be able to drive at night again. Hope this helped.
