My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This issue here can be caused by a fault with the trunk lock actuator/latch itself.I have seen this fail on several models in the past before causing this issue here and had to replace it.I would have this checked into and tested further to see if for sure this is the cause here needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
