Hi, I own a 86 GL wagon 4WD. A few weeks back i got rear ended, not much damage but it did force the trunk in an inch or to and made it hard to close. Ive since managed to push out some of the dent and now it closes nice and easy but alas the trunk indicator light is always on. I cant figure out where the switch is, any ideas how to fix this ?

As I recall, the switch for the dash light is in the latch/lock assembly (I know that's how it is on wagons) remove the trim on the trunk door and look in there. Otherwise it is a little pushbutton-style switch somewhere around the perimeter of the trunk door.

Hope this helps!

Also, the hatch has a "normal car latch" on it - there are two stages of closed. If it's in the first stage of closed, it won't fly open, but it will still leave the light on. It's possible that the hatch isn't closing all the way, and that's why the indicator stays on.
