My 2001 Volvo s40...

My 2001 Volvo s40 trunk will not stay closed

Mechanic's Assistant: What exactly is happening to the trunk?

I push it down to close and it won't stay locked

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S40 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried moving the lid gadget back and forth and it won't stay locked

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The lid open light comes on, on the dash board.
