The trunk will not latch when I try to shut it. I noticed the two black lugs on each side of the locking post do not move when I activate/deactivate the alarm. In fact, they are stuck in the "out" position. I believe that's what is keeping the latch in the lid from catching on the locking post.

Any suggestions? My CD changer is going to be stolen!

Thanks,

"Kenati"
