Some 2006 Lincoln Zephyr, 2007-2010 MKZ and 2009 MKS vehicles may exhibit an inoperative luggage compartment lid solenoid. The solenoid may be stuck in the open position, preventing the lid from latching.

With the lid open and the ignition key in the accessory position, cycle the luggage compartment latch with the luggage compartment release button inside the passenger compartment. After hearing the latch activate, attempt to close the luggage compartment lid.

If the lid does not close, remove the luggage compartment lid latch trim. Check to ensure that the electrical connector is fully seated into the release solenoid. Inspect the release T-shaped interior handle for correct routing and free movement.

Cycle the latch as before. If the lid still does not close, replace the latch assembly.
