Trunk Will Not Latch Closed on Mercury Sable

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The electric trunk latch solenoid can get stuck in the open position making it so the trunk will not latch closed. The diagnosing technician should verify correct electrical connection at the solenoid and check for correct cable routing. The trunk latch most commonly will need to be replaced.
