Hi, the problem is usually a faulty trunk lock mechanism. The vacuum actuated trunk release mechanism leaks and will not open the lid. You will need to have the complete lock replaced as there are no serviceable parts to the lock.

It is #10 in the image above.

You can try removing fuse 62 in the rear fuse box for a few seconds and reinstall it and see if it resets the PSE module. Sometimes that will get the trunk working again but it will usually be a temporary fix if there is a leak in the system.
