My trunk will not automatically shut anymore

Asked by Jan 31, 2017 at 08:38 PM about the 2008 Lexus GS 350 RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2008 GS 350 Lexus: my trunk will no longer shut automatically ( kids would
slam it). The dash flashes that my trunk is not shut when in fact it is. The trunk
release button in the cab nor the remote will operate the trunk anymore. I
have to manually unlock it. Can this be reset or do I need to take it to
dealership for fixing?
