e200 k boot lid not opening

Hi, can anybody help!!
i have an E200k 2003 avantgrade, the problem is that the boot lid will not open, either with the remote locking using the key or by the switch in the drivers door. i did manage to open the boot using the key in the remote. nothing seems to be ticking or trying to move in the boot lid. also all the lights in the boot are gone, including the 3rd brake light on the boot lid along with the reg lights.
i had a look in the manual and there is nothing showing which fuse is for the locking mechanism. also i have checked all the fuses in the car and all are fine, my opinion is it could be a relay switch but i dont know which one it is.
if anybody could help would really appreciate it.

Check the wires running into the trunk they are probably broken. The wires run up the passenger side ( R/H drive ) trunk hinge . Follow the wires down behind the trunk pannel and that is where they can break. I had the same prob earlyer this year with an 04 320 CDI
