Trunk won't open

All of a sudden my trunk won't open unless I "help" it with my hand as I push any of the three buttons. And before anyone asks, no the lockout switch in the console is not on.

It's almost as though the extra "oomph" of the switch/solenoid/? isn't there to set the trunk in motion. When I just give a gentle nudge after pressing a button, the trunk opens all the way up on it's own and stays there. Otherwise, it just starts to open (1/8") and then closes again. Nothing jamming the mechanisms either.
