Customer Question
The trunk lid on...

The trunk lid on my IS250 (2015) will to open. It makes the click sound/beep (from all buttons), but does not release. The key doesn't work either. Worked fine until this morning.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried silicone spray or WD-40?

On what? I can't even get it to open.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '15 Lexus?

IS250

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Other than cycling the valet switch and trying all buttons and the key, nothing.
