Please do not double post the same problem. I have deleted your second post on the same topic.

Please post in the appropriate forum (this is not a top issue). I will move this for you.

Each trunk has a separate microswitch.

As Loren says, but both lights will go on when one of the switches are closed, in other words when the trunk lid is open, the light in the engine room will also be activated and vice versa. The switches are located inside the locking mechanism front and rear.

I appreciate the feedback and I am sorry for the double post, I wanted to explain the issue more clearly. That being said I am not sure you are completely understanding my issue. It appears to more, perhaps incorrectly, that you are talking about the lights in the truck and engine area.

My issue is that the light is on in the dash saying that one or the other of the hoods are not closed. So, I have the red light with the picture of the truck and engine compartment lids open.

The issue is probably the micro switch as you mentioned. Does anyone have any idea on how I determine which one is defective, swince either one will illuminate the dash light?

The front trunk micro switch is notorious on my 02 S, the catch point is really late and usually I have to give the trunk an extra push after it fully latch to make sure the indicator goes off. I'm sure there is a way of adjusting this but I've not spend any time since giving it an extra push usually resolve this. There is nothing special with this switch it's just an on off switch.
