Q: Q: Trunk latch not working.

asked by on

The latch on the trunk of my car is broken. The trunk will not close.

The small push button for the trunk may be defective and will cause the trunk to open by itself if the key is near enough to cause the passive trunk to release and open the trunk. The defective button is of the plastic type button and the new style is rubber coated. Have the system checked and if needed to replace the switch. You may also have a broken latch but the switch is the most common problem.
