When I hit the keyless entry release button you can hear the clicking on the inside of the car in the fuse box but the trunk won't pop open.I've even tried to open by using the button in the car?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

It sounds like the weather stripping could be glued (stuck) to the trunk lid try to hit the button and lift the trunk lid up to release the seal. Also try pushing down on the trunk lid while opening becasue the stuckier could need adjustment here are diagrams below to show you what's going on. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Ca check fuse and relay in junction block in car there should be a button in car to open it as well. If your seat folds down in rear there should be a strap by the window to pull to gain entry to trunk. The only cable in there is the one for emergency inside trunk
