Lightbulb Trunk Release Not working/door open?

Hey all, need some help.

I have a brand new 2006 zx3 SE and a few times now my display panel has indicated an "open door" and I pull over and check and all doors are shut. It eventually goes away randomly.

It wouldn't be a big problem...except for the fact that when that light is on it actually thinks the trunk is open, so the trunk release on the dash, and my keyfob will NOT work to open the trunk.

Anything I should check or suggest for warranty work?

bring it in for warranty work... I bet there is something off alignment or something and the latch isn't pushing the sensor in all the way.

yeah, what he said. I hada similar problem on my ST, a 2006. All they did was adjust a bolt on one of the hinges, and put a shim between another bolt that held the sensor in place. about 20min, and $0 worth of work.
