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

SOURCE: THE TRUNK LIGHT STAYS ON WHEN I CLOSE THE TRUNK

You will probably have to replaced the light assembly. If you're looking for a cheap fix, take the bulb out.

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.

SOURCE: Trunk ajar light on in message center

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.

SOURCE: The trunk light stays on the dash and wont go off even with the trunk closed.

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

Trunk light stays on how can I fix it. I tried closing the trunk didn't work


Could be the mercury switch is out of position. When trunk is raised, mercury flows to the end of switch an makes the circuit complete, turning the light on. When closed, mercury flows away from connection. If doesn't have a mercury switch, then must have a button staying out on the lid, or out of position that the closed trunk isn't depressing the button. This button is connected to a ground white ground wire to make a connection. Light always has power to it, but the button completes the circuit by connecting the ground when button it out with trunk open.

The trunk open indicator shows trunk open, but it's closed.


There is a switch in the trunk, that will close when the trunk is closed. This switch probably has become loose and out of adjustment, failing to work when trunk is closed. Find and readjust the trunk open\closed sensor.

My malfunction indicator light came on but it went back off what does this mean 2007 chrysler300


The MIL is an indicator of excessive emmissions,if the light went
out,it's ok. May have been a loose gas cap or even a wheel spinning
in snow,I'd let it go unless it comes on and stays on.

My truck light on the dash used to go on & off


There was a wire attached to the trunk lid on the drivers side that was attached by a clamp. It looks like this sm. clamp was rubbing on the wire eveytime the trunk was opened & closed. I found someone that can splice in a new piece where it is broken.
