Model Years Affected: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012

Average Mileage: 89,081 mi (56,000 mi - 144,000 mi)


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.

    Trunk makes terrible noise when using interior button or remote to open it, will then need to be slammed repeatedly in order to get it to latch. Once closed to dash still says it is open. Replaced latch assembly, dash still states trunk is open....

    Check engine light goes on. Had it checked the code was for a faulty gas cap. This model does not have a gas cap! Also the seatbelt light is on.
