Trunk lid will not open with key remote, changed actuator,

Customer Question
Trunk lid will not...

Trunk lid will not open with key remote, changed actuator, still not working.

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

The actuator is not the problem, I can open the lid using the manuel release behind the back seat.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Pontiac?

2008 g8

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your G8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have changed the actuator, which releases the trunk lid when the key remote is activated.
