Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).
This can be caused by an electrical issue that is commanding the trunk to be opened or it can be from the latch or striker out of adjustment and not fully locking in place. I recommend she try slamming it with some good pressure right above the latch. If that works then it is an adjustment needed.
Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
