First, check all fuses, in both the interior and underhood fuse boxes. If certain fuses are blown, it can cause feedback on other circuits and a host of odd symptoms. If no fuses are blown, then check the tailgate switch. The switch is in the latch. Unplug the latch and check to see if the lamp goes out. If the lamp goes out, you need a new latch. If it stays on, you could have a problem with your Electronic Time and Alarm Control module, or the wiring for the switch could be shorted to the body of the car. I checked the schematic, and don't see how this won't help you get it fixed.

Hi! Usually theres a push sensor on the trunk like the ones you see on the doors. It may be a little loose thats why the dash light wont turn off even when closed. Try to lubricate the locking mechanism of the trunk for it may resolve this. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Hello. THat dash indicator light is controlled by a switch which is turned on and off by the opening and closing of the trunk lid. Most likely that switch will need to be replaced in order to solve this annoyance. Joe

How to find trunk latch light switch


The trunk using the key or using the inside trunk release -- located next to the driver's seat. Inspect the left edge of the trunk wall to find the trunk light lens.

Check the switch (located on the trunk lid) that contacts the pull-down mechanism for power. If there is no power, the wiring is "open" between the body and the trunk lid. Look for the problem in the wiring and repair the wires. If there is power, the switch is bad.

1994 3000GT Trunk light will not come on. I changed bulb but it will not come on when hatchback is opened. Where is light switch located?


Look all around the body recess where the trunk lid sits, it will be a plastic pin about an inch (25mm) long. When trunk closes it presses the pin in.

Hyundai accent gs trunk smashed. dash light and back bulb on.


Drivers side kick panel(down by the hood latch) where your left foot is. There is also one under the hood by the drivers side strut tower. If nobody lost it there should even be a fuse puller in there. On the back of the fuse cover is a diagram that tells you which fuse is which.

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:

Trunk open light on dashboard trunk light on all time. goes off when applying brakes 2004 accent


Well I took it to a trusted mechanic and unfortunately for me it was not the switch in the trunk. The switch for the accent trunk light is built into the trunk latch which would be easy to fix, but I knew that because of the light going off when you press the brake it had to be a short somewhere, which it did turn out to be. Too bad we couldn't actually find the short, it is probably something rubbing on a gound somewhere. I actually just took the bulb out of the dash behind the trunk open indicator so it wouldn't drain my battery.
