There is almost certainly a switch that tells the brain the luggage compartment is closed and it is likely the switch is faulty or there is a wiring or connection problem.

The switch might be buried in the catch or be integrated into the central locking system.

SOURCE: Interior Lights and Door Ajar light stay w/beeping noise.

Try spraying WD-40 into the door latching mechanism (door side). I learned this fix after two battery replacements, but have only had to spray twice in the more than seven years of ownership

SOURCE: 1995 lincoln town car trunk will not automatically shut

There is a black flat switch handle immediately to the right side of the latch. Press that switch handle and the latch will make a noise and rise slightly. Then when you shut the deck, the switch activates and recesses, pulling the deck lid down to the fully closed position.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Trunk wont pull shut.

You have a pull down switch that activates the pull down motor for the trunk lid to close. The manufacture of this part supplies this to Ford & General Motors vehicles. You can go to a Cadillac dealership & purchase this part far cheaper than at Ford. I use to work at a GM dearlership & my neighboring Ford dealer would order this part from me for the cost of mine where less than the cost from Ford. Figure those guys out at Ford. No wonder they don't need a goverment bailout

Trunk does not completely close


The trunk latch contains a switch which closes when the trunk lid is pushed closed by hand, then this switch sends power to the trunk lid pull down motor which then finishes closing the trunk lid. Often the switch or motor will go bad and the whole thing will stop working. It takes a little testing to figure out which part is at fault but they are usually quite easy to fix.

97 town car trunk pull down stopped working ???


i pulled entire lower assembly off, removed motor casing and found that the plastic ring gear that pulls the truck down was stripped. I then pulled the whole thing apart using simple tools and turned the ring gear by hand to about 3/8 inch above the full down position. I then reassembled and re-installed without the switch and without the motor. Trunk closes like a normal trunk now (no pull down obviously. I am not a mechanic and it only took about an hour and two beers, no money. 93 lincoln town car.
Note: you will need torx bits but that is the only thing "specialized" in the operation
