Trunk light problem

I just noticed that my trunk light would not turn on when I open it, unless I pop open the engine compartment as well. And as soon as I close the engine compartment, the trunk (front) light turns off. Is this right ? I never recall having this problem before. Does anyone know what is going on? Thanks.

That is not they way it should work. Not sure what the issue is though.
Good luck.

I guess I am in a little trouble too, as I didn't know I had a trunk light.

But my hood light works when lights are on.

My trunk light works intermittently. I pop the unit out at the driver side wheel well area, and give the bulb a spin. Works for me every time. It could be the bulb or a loose connection. I have three vehicles to maintain. And, this issue is last on my DIY list. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. I finally figured out my problem. The hood latch connection is a bit off. So it didnt know the hood(trunk) was open when it was. I had to flip the latch across a couple of times when it was open and the light came back on.
