How do I get the trunk sensor to shut off on the dash?


Close the trunk.... Just kidding

this might sound odd but it sound like the sensor that sees the trunk as closed is either mis adjusted or faulty.

spray a squirt of penetrating oil like wd40 into the receiver that secures the trunk lid. For example the lid should have a loop or square of metal that when the trunk lid is closed joins with the locking mechanism.

Shoot a a squirt of we 40 into the locking mechanism and see if the light goes out.

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!

Dash light looks like a car with trunk open is lit up. All doors and trunk are secure. What is the cause?


The trunk lid is not closed tightly enough....or the trunk lid switch is not properly adjusted.
Try closing the trunk lid a little harder once to see if it works,,,or have someone push down hard there while you watch the panel light.


Hopes this helps

I'm having a problem with the dome light and both reading lights. they all stopped working at the same time. I checked the fuses and they look fine. The car is a 2004 Buick Century I don't know if it's...


For your first problem I would suggest taking a test light and double checking the fuses I would always recommend doing that because I have worked on numerous vehicles where the fuses were pulled and not replaced firmly and not making contact (just a good thorough habit to get into) if your fuse has power check for power on either your dome or personal reading lamps they are both on the same circuit. If you have power then replace the bulbs if not you will need to check for power between the lights to your illuminator/interior light switch this should isolate if you have a defective circuit ie:shorted,cut,loose wire connection which would need to be repaired. Your second problem the trunk open indicator showing it is still on when closed: open your trunk with the key on have someone push the trunk lid jamb switch several times to check for proper function if it still shows to be opened then it will need to be replaced if it goes on and off as it should then you should check your weather strip/struts and all components & function of trunk to ensure it is properly closing and not out of proper alignment. Hope this helps and if you have any more questions let me know.

Sounds like the sensor switch is bad - this is the switch that is pressed down when the trunk/boot is closed. If it's bad, it may not allow the light to turn on when you open the lid, and it also probably isn't telling the dash light that it's closed when it is, which would explain why your indicator light is on. Check to see if it has damaged wires on it, and if not, I'd replace it.
