SOURCE: Trunk lid pops open when

I will do it in my own way since the wiring is messed up, and when i press close on my Remote, the trunk pops open. I will Harness this problem to benefit me since my remote does not have a trunklid switch. I will route the Motor (that has a piston) wire through the switch relay (located just above the vehicle ID plate area), so that opening the trunk lid is only possible when i keep pressing the trunk open swich (on the trunk lid) while at the same time pressing the close/LOCk button on my remote.

SOURCE: trunk won't close

You should be able to Close that Manually. Just wait for the Electronic Close to Stop Trying before you close it and it should be just fine.

Sometimes the lid get twisted. You can open the lid and with one arm pull down on the side that is up and using the other arm push up, twisting the lid a little. That should level it. There are also rubber stops that turn up and down that help adjust it. But I would try twisting it first since thats how it got missed aligned.

It seems that my 2005 Lexus ES330 trunk light won't turn off. How to check whether the trunk light is off when the trunk lid is close?


Remove the bulb if you think it runs the battery down. the switch is part of the latch assembly of the trunk.

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.

Does this car has power trunk?


If you mean automatic closing check at the latch area inside trunk and look for wiring going to a motor that would pull the trunk lid down when latched.I am almost sure only the 98 series had auto close function.

TRUNK WON'T CLOSE!! HELP!!


First your trunk pull down is broken, you can buy a used pull down at a junk yard for far less than you can get one at the dealer. Until you replace the pull down you can unplug the power at the pull down and adjust the latch to allow you to close the trunk. As far as over heating goes if the idiot light is not coming on I would not get overly concerned with the temperature gage, if you want you can flush the radiator and put in fresh coolant.

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
