I just saw this and agree with Q. Since the wiring loom has 13 wires, some of which can break or touch others, lots of weird things can happen - especially to the trunk latch and license plate lights.

In my case, NOTHING would open the trunk except the key manually.
- Not the remote unlock on the key specific for the trunk
- Not the four-door unlock by pressing twice on the door unlock button
- Not the unlock button on the console
- Not even the handle in the outside of the trunk itself

All that was fixed when I repaired my trunk wiring loom as shown in the aforementioned thread.
