This answer was rated:

2001 Volvo S80. Unlocked trunk with remote. Can close trunk lid but it will not latch. Is this a mechanical problem with the latch or an electrical problem that supplies the latch? DIY repair or dealer required?

Thank you

Hello and thanks for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do all I can to help.

Edward Clayton :

First, do you see where the latch closes against the striker?

Edward Clayton :

Take the hook from the latch and close it manual, as it would if the trunk was closed. Does the latch hold ? or is the latch definitely defective? Trying to determine if it's out of adjustment or if the latch is definitely bad.
