Question about Cars & Trucks
In most cases it is the trunk lock /latch assembly. There is a switch in there that informs the body module whether the lid id open or closed. I have had sucess spraying wd40 in the latch assembly and opening and closing the lid several times. If no help, the latch may have to be replaced

The switch is located in the latch of the trunk, make sure the wire connector to the switch is not pulled loose or otherwise damaged.

Look for a contact switch in the trunk. Sometimes, when the trunk (or door for that matter) gets slammed, then button gets set deeper.
What's happening is door and trunk switches are "self adjusting", and a slam "Self adjusts" too far. It is hard to reset the switch without killing it. Just get another one if you find this to be your situation. Test the switch before you buy a replacment.

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