​Open Trunk Warning Light

The Bulb Check: ​​​​​​Open Trunk Warning Light

​​​​​​​​​​​​This ​indicator ​is to notify you that the trunk lid is not completely shut. Some vehicles use the Door Ajar indicator light to alert you. 

​The two biggest concerns with an open trunk lid going to the road is one, you may loose items that could fall out on the road. the second issue which can be dangerous is allowing your vehicle exhaust to come back into the cabin area and poison you.

​​What to Do: ​​​​​Open Trunk Warning Light

​​​​​​​The most practical thing to do is to ensure that the trunk lid is securely shut. However if the indicator light is still coming on, make sure you have no obstacle in the trunk keeping it from fully latching. If the lid is fully shut, you may have a switch that has gone bad or broken. Have a professional inspect the switch.
