Has anyone experienced problems closing their trunk. Yesterday, the trunk latch stopped snapping closed without slamming the trunk hard. If I close the trunk normally, the trunk will remain in the down position, but the latch will not snap closed, and the "trunk open" signal in the dashboard will indicate that the trunk is open. Any thoughts???

Trunk?
I don't have a trunk on my Pilot.

Do you mean the rear hatch?

Make sure nothing is in the way, then have it adjusted.

I always forget to move the cargo net out of the way before closing my rear door.

I was just trying to throw a little humor into the day. It was not intended any other way.

Credit the air seal

I've found that the air seal on the Pilot is so good, that unless a window is cracked open, the last door shut (or hatch as the case may be) needs to be closed with extra force in order to securely engage the latch.

Also, from prior ownership of two Caravans, I'm kinda used to having to slam the rear hatch in order to ensure the lock is engaged.
