hello, the issue will be with the trunk lid contact switch also known as s88/6 , the switch is internal to the trunk latch and the latch assemble will most likely need to be replaced if its not separate. some models they were not available separately. also the wiring from the lid to the body could have broken near the hinge area on the dirvers side, the wires usually bend and break due to the constant opening and closing of the trunk lid. hope this helps. the wire is a yellow wire coming from the latch to the hinge area.
