Yes, most of them have 2 switches...one on top latch (male side), one on
bottom(receiver or "female" side, the one on top is out of sync. if you
take a small screwdriver and pull the switch down, when you close the
trunk, that should work for you. OTHERWISE, you may have to replace one or
both of the switches.
Hope that helps,
P.S.--Keep your fingers outta the way...it HURTS when you get 'em pinched.
