A buddy of mine has a 2006 Sonata that suddenly developed a problem\nwith the trunk latch, it will not open with either the key or the\nremote. What happens is you can hear the latch operate and the\ntrunk pops up barely enough to feel it move, then it won't budge.\nThe rear seatbacks can't be folded down either because the security\nswitch (located in the trunk!) has those locked up as well. In addition,\nthe trunk warning light on the dash stays lit all the time. We could not\nget anywhere with this thing, so he took the car to the dealer (it's still\nunder warranty).\n\nThe car was there all day but it seems they have not been able to figure\nout a way to get into the trunk to work on the latch. So it looks like\nthey need to keep it a while. In the meantime I'm loaning my friend\none of my old non-computer, non-remote-access AMC vehicles that he loves\nto poke fun at. (Never had this kind of problem with them in decades\nof driving!)\n\nAny Hyundai mechanics reading this group that maybe have seen this\nproblem or maybe have some ideas?
