Front compartment light INOP

Recommended Posts

So my light does not light up, I checked the bulb and it's good. Can anyone share some suggestions? I can't even find the light trigger switch around the hood :(

Last guy that said the bulb looked good - turned out it was burned out. I take it the connector is connected to the back of the light.

2004 is not known for having a bad microswitch on the front trunk latch.

First thing in the morning use the remote to open the front trunk and see if the light is on. If not, then leave the front trunk open and use the remote to open the rear trunk. If the rear trunk light is on but not the front, then swap bulbs.

If the rear trunk light does not come on, then open the door. If both trunks lights then come on then your car is still in the transit mode.

As Loren mentioned, look at the hood latch release build in switch.

That is a sign that the switch for the front trunk latch is not working. That switch is for the light and alarm.

Close everything, but leave the front trunk opened. Set the alarm and you should hear a single beep from the alarm horn to alert you the trunk is opened. No beep then the switch is acting up.

Also your 2004 should have a warning light on the instrument cluster for when the trunk lid is not closed. If the warning light does not come on then it is the switch again.
