Test Fuses "10" & "11" on "both sides" located in the Under Hood Fuse Panel
IF Fuses are good & Button does not work, you can TRY:

Locate the TAN (-) wire at the BCM, Connector C2 PIN 10
Briefly Ground the TAN (-) wire to pop the Trunk
IF the above does not work, then you have an issue with the Trunk Latch, BCM, or Electronics & use of GM Scan Tool is needed to Test
The only other way is to have a Body Shop open the Latch
