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

It seems that my 2005 Lexus ES330 trunk light won't turn off. How to check whether the trunk light is off when the trunk lid is close?


Remove the bulb if you think it runs the battery down. the switch is part of the latch assembly of the trunk.

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.

Does this car has power trunk?


If you mean automatic closing check at the latch area inside trunk and look for wiring going to a motor that would pull the trunk lid down when latched.I am almost sure only the 98 series had auto close function.

Trunk lid is very stiff to open/close


the hinges for the trunk will need replacing. not the shocks. about $60 a piece from VW. do it yourself about 4 bolts. just get someone to hold the trunk for you. its not necessary to paint the new hinges

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
