Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The trunk is disabled because it isn't seeing the top closed. The root cause of the issue is the top not closing or a microswitch/wiring issue causing it to think the top isn't closed when it actually is.

Without a scan tool the only way to force the trunk open would be to locate the light blue wire in pin 16 of body control module connector 1 and use a jumper wire to momentarily apply ground to the circuit. This will actuate the trunk release relay.
