Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The electronic trunk release will be disabled if the car has been entered without security being disarmed. For instance if the doors were locked and a slim jim/lockout kit was used to open the doors without disarming security then it will disable the trunk release.

Was the car locked, and how was it entered?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Entered trunk by removing speaker.
