Question about 2003 Pontiac Sunfire
This happened all the time on my 03, take two plyers, one in each hand and put them both onto the u-bolt (the part that the latch latches to) and pull up then try and close the trunk, sometimes the latch pushes that ubolt platform down so it cant grab

The U-Bolt Latch Breaks.... I have an 02 and i gotta fix mine again tonight... The U-bolt is only held on to the car with very thin metal. I also bet your licence place light is hanging down!

See if you can make the latch work by just using a screw driver in the slot to lock it, then open it with the key. If that works ok, you will need to raise the striker and align it to the latch.

Mine also had this problem within the first few months of ownership. I took it to the dealership and they said it was a "known issue" with the latching mechanism. They used some type of tool to pull the latch forward and it worked like a charm. It was free of charge at a Pontiac Dealership. Hope this helps.
