This is a common problem and this is something you can do.there is a motor and a switch. the most common problem is the switch goes bad on the motor , i know that on the older models the switch could be replaced. open the trunk you will need to remove the plastic cover to gain access to the motor, the motor is part of the latch, note the latch i speak of is the bottom one not the one one the trunk lid, you will see a few screws remove them and unplug connector, there is a way to power the motor to see if its good, another thing that customers have me do is i power the motor down which pulls latch down then i leave it disconnected this way the trunk will close by slamming it. it just wont do it slowly with motor but rather like the old car , just slam it shut. If you want to repair it then test motor you will connect power and ground to motor and see if it moves if it does then a switch is all you need but if motor is bad then replace both parts, i think it comes complete with a switch but double check. the parts are dealer parts or on the web you will find them good day.
Can't be to involved follow the big radiator hose to motor top one where it conects, thats where the t stat is under the nozzle . 2 nuts or bolts hold it down remove replace gasket also ,, clean gasket surface 1st,,
The pull down motor is easy to change open your trunk and look where it latches thats your pull down motor it is probably 3 10 milimeter bolts you will probably have to take out the plastics that cover it up and push back or remove the trunk liner material by it. change your motor and you will have to adjust the motor by lightly snugging the bolts and closing the trunk till it is in the right position then tighten bolts and reinstale liner
Disconnect the battery. Remove the steering wheel. Remove turn signal switch,Remove the buzzer switch with needle nose pliers.

Then with key in place, pull out the assembly straight out.Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulkhead connectorand remove retaining clip. attach some wire to the connector to help with installation and pull harness through column. Installation is reverse.
did it quit making the noise when you lightly push down on the trunk? most people slam these trunks and your not suppose to you are only to put light pressure on them and they pull it closed theirself.. you might check your relays under the hood and look in the box lid to see which one it is.. if this is not the problem you might have to replace the motor to the latch .. you might check with a test light to see if there is power to the motor first though .. thanks and holler if you have more Jerry .
