Mine is the same way, sometimes it works...other times it doesn't. I really haven't looked into it much. Plus, the trunk is so small it's tough to lose something in it!:rolleyes:

Might be the switch. Try putting a little WD-40 on it. The same switch is used on the clutch to keep the car from being started clutch out while in gear. Damn thing squeaked like crazy -- but a shot of WD-40 fixed it 18K miles ago and it has been fine since.

Be careful with the use of WD-40. It is a water replacer, but it can get really gummy in cold temperatures. There are some better cleaner fluids out there. Everyone has their particulars, mine, of course is Amzoil :cheers

I have never experienced WD-40 gumming up in cold weather.
I have been using WD-40 in the locks of my cars for 30+ years in the winter to help prevent freeze up. Always slick and clean and I have never seen any gunk on the key.

What gets me is..... there is a light in the truk but no light under the hood. :confused
