Question about 1998 Acura RL
Does anyone know where the trunk gets it's power from, I checked all the fuses and all seem to be good, however, I'm not getting power to the white wire going to the latch.
If its not getting power it should close no problem, the trunk releases when power is supplied by the remote release switch, check for the latch if its stuck open, you could have a broken spring or something causing it to stick open

could be the spring release in the lever on the trunk itself. If you can hear the acuator locking/unlocking(that is all it's ment to do) then the spring release is the problem. you need to unbolt the latch from inside the trunk and once the trunk is open you can trace from there. I had the same problem due to a minor fender bender and I just fixed mine last week.

I"m having trouble with locking and unlocking my hatch using my remote. I have flipped the white switch in the trunk and it acts as a child safety lock if flipped one direction. However I am not able to open the trunk this way. It acts as a permanent lock. So I figure the switch must be flipped the other direction and need to replace my actuator. Is this hard to do. It looks to me like it two switches holding a bracket to hold the actuator itself after plugging in the actuator from both sides. Is it really this simple?? Is there more to it???

SOURCE: trunk won't stay closed or latch
well have a look at it as the part on the body could have worked loose and moved ,look for previous position in the grime this will show you it has moved
