Comfort Access and trunk/hatch

Off and on since I bought the car, the trunk lid sometimes wouldn't power itself closed the last little bit. Never was able to get it to do it when at the dealers, and mostly it worked (always seemed to work with the hatch, though). Well, a few weeks ago, it started where the switch for the trunk release wouldn't work. I tried taking the remote out of my pocket since I do carry my cellphone in that pocket as well sometimes thinking it might create interference (but it hasn't before), but it still wouldn't work. The interior release and the button on the remote would release the trunk. Then, about a week ago, the hatch release stopped working as well, and at least on my year and model, there's no alternative way to open the hatch so that's rubbed salt into the wound!

I'm going to try to call the dealer (I'm out of town for a few weeks, and don't know how they'll react but it's still under warranty) and see if they can help.

Anyone else have similar issues? If so, how was it resolved?
