Beside bad switch or connection, other possibility is that your security system is not disengaging and that disable trunk opener.
I have that on new purchased car figuring out the trunk lid switches have a short somewhere, but still had no time to get to it.
Usually locking and unlocking the doors with remote solve the problem.
Yes the red led on the button comes on when I open the trunk with the fob, but the button refuses to work :S.
Anyway I took a look at this video:
I dismantled everything and cleaned, no dice, I managed to find the part.no of the buttonpad which is 2108208410,
I decided to try out and just replace this thingie, Im determined to find a solution to this annoying problem, cba to turn off engine everytime in order to use the fob to open it.
I managed to find a scrapyard online here in sweden with the part in stock used for 379swedish kronor (about 50 dollars) shipped, dealer would have probably wanted 4 times as much
, will report back when I recieve/install it.
