The remote trunk release in cabin will not release the rear trunk. The cable pull the mechanism that has a rod to the trunk lock, however the rod does not move to release the lock. What part of mechanism is broken? Or spring missing? That prevents the release of trunk lock?

Can you open it with the key at the rear deck? Or by using the keyless entry remote? If so you can gain access to the latch to see what is wrong. The cable may be broken at either end, so it cant pull the release. When you get the trunk open have someone pull the manual release so you can watch at the latch to see if it moves

Have you tried the key in the rear deck lid? Sounds like the latch may be broken if nothing will make it release

The key will release the lock, when inserted in the lock. The key remote will release the lock. The release lever inside the car is the non-working part. The lever has a cable, this move the release mechanism, which has a bar going to the truck lock, but the bar does not pull the lock to cause release. Question: Does repair manual show this assy? It is attached to trunk lid, and not to trunk lock. Connection from release to lock is by means of a bar.

My software doesnt have it. Can you see where the cable attaches at the trunk end of the release?If so have someone work the interior release and see if the cable is pulling at the trunk end. If not the cable may be broken.

Plastic clip broken? That is usually the culprit for stuff like that
