Please only rate answers AFTER finishing our session. Your problem may take a few conversations to pin point, and we can talk until you are satisfied.

If the trunk will open with the key fob, more than likely the switch is defective or has a bad connection.
use a test light to verify the switch has power to it and through it when the button is pushed.
Post back after testing...
