There is a sensor in the trunk that is either damaged or defective, it is most likely part of/attached to the trunk latch.

SOURCE: Trunk light on ~ trunk not open ~ alarm going off

look for a what is called a valet switch under the dash.(it is a pushbutton switch or a toggle switch.) Have somebody help you and turn the key all the way to where it wants to crank the engine and press the button switch or flip the toggle switch at the same time . within 5 seconds at least.your antitheft light will come on and your alarm will sound once. That should bypass the anti theft locking and reset the ECU .Then try to start the car. I don't know if it will work , but give it a try.

SOURCE: trunk light and dash light always on

I would have to agree it's an electrical problem. It might simply be a defective trunk lid latch switch. Here's the wiring diagram:

This is a fairly serious problem because it risks your cars security at night by allowing people a way in. I would immediately take it to a professional so he can chase wires and see where they go. He should also have a wiring diagram to see how it should be wired. I'm sure he could get it figured out within a couple days and have everything looking like direct from the factory. Do not allow your repair guy to leave covers off or carpet pulled out.

The car trunk symbol on my dash keeps coming on to tell me my trunk is open,but my trunk is shut tight, also, something drained the battery, so I don't know if it's electrical or just a fuse or someth


The cheap switch that controls the trunk is not working properly and the light is staying on (to drain the battery and trigger the warning) fix the switch. All you have to do is find the switch. Probably is not correctly positioned.

My alarm kills my battery on 2005 camry


Throttle-by-wire systems like yours probably has means there is no physical linkage (cable or rod) interconnecting the accelerator pedal to the throttle body. Instead both talk to the computer via wires. The gas pedal is like a volume control on a radio and can never be felt "moving" when cruise control is engaged and making throttle adjustments such as going up or down a hill like older system did. A bad "sender" on the throttle pedal, bad or loose wiring to the computer, bad computer, bad wiring from computer to throttle body or intermittently bad electric actuator motor on/in the throttle body can all give the symptoms of "no throttle control" you describe. As for the battery being discharged, a bad trunk light switch could keep the trunk light on at all times but you cannot see this when the lid is closed. Immediately touching the trunk light bulb quickly after opening the trunk will tell you if it's staying on, it will be hot as heck. The same goes for the glove compartment light. A keyless entry system always uses power so it can listen for the signal from your keyfob to unlock the door, as does the time clock in dash or radio.

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.
