The trunk unlocked by pushing the button in the console however sometimes it would not unlock by pushing the button on trunk lid. took the trunk cover off. I lubricated and closed the trunk and it worked fine a couple of times then quit opening. I thought it might be the vacuum plunger. In the end, I guess road vibrations had loosened the 2 screws that secure the lock cylinder to the trunk. That little movement caused the mechanism to not quite move enough to engage the unlock button. If you have a problem check your mounting screws. Both sides were loose on mine.
