So I changed up my trunk latch to the newer version ones because mine kept failing due to the cold.
After I changed it up, the sensor keeps saying the trunk is unlocked, but its clearly locked.
I just tried to re-connect the sensor cable but still doesn't work.
WHATS GOING ON?!
UPDATE: fix it. took the latch apart and swapped the sensors.
now it works like a charm.
I also noticed white fluid/oil/grease in the new latch, and dried up residue what seemed to use to have the white fluid/oil/grease.
It's also in the lock mechanism itself, perhaps the cause for the trunk latch problem is that it dried up?!
