The trunk lock is in the vertical position, and my central locking system is working just fine. But the trunk does not respond to my remote entry, nor the button below the steering wheel. Any ideas?
Hmmm, well forget what I wrote in the other sounds like you may have an issue with the trunk's wiring loom.

Check out what bluebee writes in her thread above...and do a search on that topic. It's been discussed enough that you should run into good DIY info...if nothing an advanced search for threads by bluebee on this topic...she's great with pics and notation/instructions.
