TRUNK RELEASE. IN DOOR TRUNK RELEASE NOT WORKING.

2002 Volkswagen Golf • 4 cylinder FWD Manual • 155,000 miles

I have a 2002 Volkswagen golf and the trunk unlocks via the key fob but the in door trunk release doesn't work. It is really annoying because I am unable to unlock the trunk without having to turn off my car and use the key fob. The gas tank release functions perfectly. The problem is recent. It functioned oddly before but now no at all. There is no sound of the motor working or anything.

The fact that there is no longer any sound would indicate that the actuator motor is no functioning. You will have to remove the hatch panel and test the actuator motor.
