Customer: I have a 2005 s type
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Trying...

You can try operating the emergency release handle in the trunk and also try using the key in the trunk trunk lock cylinder as this will sometimes free upo a sticking latch. You can also try lubricating the trunk latch. If it still will not close it may need to be replaced.
