Hey all! Last night, my trunk light would not go off, and the message center inside the car said that the trunk was still open even when it wasn't. I checked the trigger mechanism in the lock assembly, and it was fine......I even cut the trigger wire, and the light and message light still stayed on. Which makes me believe there is a short somewhere. Does it work on some sort of relay system, or could there just be a spot where the wire is shorting out? I figure it must be the short must be on the negative end of the system, other wise the light in the trunk wouldnt come on. But then again, there is no negative lead, because the lock mechanism is just connected to the vehicle's chasis and therefore has no need for one.....I am puzzled! The door and hood sensors are fine, so I have no idea what is going on. I have an aftermarket alarm installed, but I am not sure how this could cause such a situation. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
