Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you hear a noise from the trunk when the top button is pressed you're most likely hearing the pump. If the pump is still running then you either have a mechanical issue preventing the top from moving, the pump has failed or there is a hydraulic fluid leak.

How close is the top from touching the header?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The top is about 2 inches from closing.I thought the whole system was electrical. If there is a leak, how can I tell?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

You would start by checking the fluid level. Are you able to get the trunk lid open?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The rear deck lid is stuck in the oipen position.

I was wondering if you could open it from the rear but you have plenty of access with it being open that far. The noise you hear when pressing the top button is coming from the left rear of the inside of the trunk, correct?
