I'm not sure if the guy who can't open his trunk electrically has answered that he has checked/fixed his wiring loom; but, if not, that's the primo suspect!

So, it bears repeating the relevant links:
- Trunklid open, check licplate light, and other trunk wiring loom woes (1) (2) (3)

If just (the wrong) one of these 13 wires are cut, there is absolutely no way you will open the trunk electrically; and you can forget opening it manually with the trunk handle too (ask me how I know).

BTW, two epic threads are worth perusing if you have the basic manual operation problem:
- How to open the trunk manually when you have a dead 12v car battery (1) (2)
