Question Remote trunk lock

SEARCHED BUT DID NOT FIND ANY HELP... MY KEY STOPPED ACTIVATING THE REMOTE ASPECT OF MY TRUNCK LOCK. DOORS ARE STILL ACTIVATED. WHEN I UNLOCK THE TRUNK WITH THE KEY IN THE LOCK I ALSO HAVE LOCK WITH THE KEY IN THE LOCK; IT DOESN'T EVEN LATCH SHUT. ANY HELP /SUGGESTIONS APPRECIATED. Just noticed the "caps" and I apologize in advance; I was not yelling but I wasn't paying attention either!

The truck lid lock has an actuator that is electrically operated.

You could have any one of numerous issues that crop up over time.

Main Issues:

1) broken power wire to actuator ( check with multimeter)

2) Spring broken in locking mechanism ( Google it )

You can get to the actuator/ locking mechanism fairly easily. Once you gain access check for power first.
