Trunk pull down motor not operating.trunk won't automatically close
Trunk latch won't pull trunk down all the way
Haven't yet completely diagnosed problem but experiencing same symptoms. Trunk will not automatically pull down with motor. Will shut if slammed very firmly. Still reading up on ways to test for fuses, power to unit, or how to just replace switch itself.
