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.

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....
I have this same problem. The trunk button inside my 2009 forud fusion makes a loud noise. I then try to close the trunk and have to slam it a few times until it shuts. I've tried manually opening it with my key to avoid using the button, but then my dash board light says the trunk is still open when it's already shut. How can i fix this?
