There is a sensor that tells the car whether the trunk is closed or open. That sensor is either bad or the piece has snapped off allowing the pressure off of it. Replace that sensor and you will solve the problem. Should be located somewhere along the perimeter of the trunks seal when you open the trunk.

Battery dead 2 mornings this wk, battery 2 yrs old checked out good, dashboard light says trunk open but not, Could this drain battery or maybe sensor is bad?


Check the switch of the trunk light if it's shutting off when the trunk close. The indicator light on your dashboard says something's wrong. Although the trunk bulb consumes small power when switched on (i guess it's only 5W), but draining out the battery power depends on how long the vehicle hasn't been started to re-charge the battery.

One of the lights on my dashboard is indicating that I have a rear bulb out, but none of my lights are out, any other suggestions for another reason for the indicator light to be on?


Look in your owners manual, see how to replace tail light bulbs. If they are removed from the light assembly and changed from within the trunk, then open the trunk, turn on the lights and pull the bulbs out one by one. You may find that more than one bulb is used on each side for the tail light, and though it looks good from the outside, one could well be burnt out. Read the instructions closely, you may have to turn the light socket 30 degrees or so to pull it out of the asembly.

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.

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.
