Trunk will not release from trunk release button along with the gas door release. No lights work for map or dome purposes and no interior door lights or interior lighting is working. Fuses are GOOD?

Trunk pull down motor not operating.trunk won't automatically close
Trunk latch won't pull trunk down all the way
Haven't yet completely diagnosed problem but experiencing same symptoms. Trunk will not automatically pull down with motor. Will shut if slammed very firmly. Still reading up on ways to test for fuses, power to unit, or how to just replace switch itself.

Trunk has to be slammed shut because auto close feature no longer works. Usually takes a couple of times for it to lock. Its not fixed.
