If you have factory alarm on it its is the trunk latch for some reason needs to be adjusted. anything gets packed in the trunk and it was hard to close it will put it out of alignment. I also think its the electrical issues they have.it releases the latch if theres a serge in the system or batterie needs replacement or possibilty and or the alternator have it checked sounds,
Fun nylon but these cars trip out if the power is not all there.

2010 Chrysler300 Trunk Light Stays ON When Trunk Is closed What Causes This Problem


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

My trunk latch on AUDI A6 2006 WONT LOCK


I experienced a similar problem, usually when cold weather set-in. My mechanic fix the problem by taking the cover off the trunk lid and lubricated the locking parts located within the trunk lid.

2006 Jetta 2.5 trunk latch operate when really cold


you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.

Yes if your lock actuator is not stuck on unlock.Try unpluging the harness to rhe electric lock,and see if it will lock and stay locked using the key.If ti works then your okay.if you still have the problem then your tounge that holds the trunk down needs to be replaced.

2000 Lexus ES300 trunk lid does not fit right on 2001 Lexus ES300


Hi, try loosening the catch on the trunk lid but do not remove it and the lock mechanism, close the trunk lid but not fully, then pull the backseats down and climb into the trunk. Adjust the lock and latch until they meet up and lock together ( This will take some time and patience is essential). Fasten the Catch and Lock back up. Then retry opening and closing, if it still doesnt fit just do the same again, just needs a bit of adjustment.

hope this helps. jonno
