it is a fuse located in the back bench seat on the passenger side. You will see a fuse panel in there i am not sure witch fuse look it up on your manual but that's what the technician did to my for it to work replace it. hope it helps good luck!!
I have not had this problem fixed. I was wondering if anyone out there had the same problem. I can't get the trunk to open using the key or the remote.

From experience, this should not be a problem. I am just writing a solution. It depend on the lock position of your trunk. Insert the small key facing your chest, and rotate it 180 degree and stop right there. Lower the trunk slowly and let it lock automatically. Then open the trunk by using the command in the Driver's door and it should open. As soon as it is opening from the Driver's door command, then it will definitely open using the remote key-less control. There is no parts to purchase at all and I have done several cars.

trunk will not open from inside or remote. Will open with mechanical key.
Dash pot came apart in trunk lid. I was able to remove it and secure together with chicken bands and re install, and it works fine now.
Trunk will not open with remote. I did not repair. I just use the key.

Trunk will only release when manually opened with the hidden key in the fob.

Twice they have changed the fuse for the trunk and it also has the driver door on it for the automatic shutting. I just gave up and stopped having them put the new fuses in because it would only last for a day. I find that if I am at least 25 ft away and use my remote that the trunk will open. The closer I get to the car, it will not open or it takes a long time holding the button for the trunk to open.

Trunk wouldn't work from latch, key, or remote. But eventually opened after a few tries.
Same problem. Not fixed. I bought this car off someone from craigslist. Somehow managed to over look some things and was wowed by the car only to have many problems a week later.

I must use the mechanical key to open the trunk, as all other high-tech methods are only in the movies. Pushing up after turning the key will either result in separated finger nails, or at best a broken jaw. Both of these injuries are generally deemed minor and are easily treated at your local emergency room. The cost to repair approached the book value of the car; so, we put up with it.
trunk won't open with remote or inside drivers door release also soft close mechanism doesn't work. Trunk can only be opened with mechanical key.
