Here is a link to a video i made to be able to access the trunk.https://youtu.be/cG7q5BlEBfMCopy and paste that link.Also when the trunk opens check for broken wiring near the drivers side trunk hinge you can easily pop off the platstic hinge cover and check right where it hinges into the trunk. A lot of times the wiring breaks from opening and closing so many times in its lifetime. Let me know if this helps . Please take a second and click the stars at the top of the screen to rate my service so I may receive my credit for helping, 5 STARS is ideal. Please request me in the future! Keep in mind that when you rate it does NOT end our conversation, you can still return here to me for follow up information if needed just simply reply back, THANKS!
