I'm still troubleshooting my issue, but the rear trunk lid will latch but will not pull down. I do not know enough about the system yet to diagnose what the actual problem is as of yet. I've taken q-tips and cleaned around the wires. I've also checked the fuse panel. the fuses are good.
I noticed the trunk not closing all the way and the it closed less, it latches and releases with button but us still not closing all the way
