    Prior to the date of this post, there were zero issues with opening the trunk. Now, however, the lid will not open when...
    • the driver's door truck release is pulled (solenoid is heard);
    • when the remote button is pushed (solenoid is heard);
    • the key is turned within the trunk lock.
    Two things do open the trunk: Emergency Release within the trunk, and doing the "turn-trunk-key-in-lock-then-press-remote-button" trick, a fact that confounds me.

    Anyone have experience t'shooting this problem?
