    Trunk light

    Hi all,
    This has probably been covered before, but if anyone has a quick answer it would be appreciated. With the car on a trickle charger, the trunk is cracked open. I just noticed that that leaves the trunk light on. Is there any way to turn it off short of yanking the bulbs or a fuse? Thanks!-Paul

    Are you sure it isn't shutting off after 15 minutes or so? My battery tender also necessitates leaving the trunk lid cracked, but the light goes off after a few minutes.

    You can close the trunk carefully and have the trickle charger cord come out in the corner where the lid and quarter panel meet. The rubber seal will flex and allow the relatively thin wire pass without any damage.

    I leave the lid open because my trickle charger manual emphasize a good ventilation for the device.
