Re: trunk won't open -1993 audi 90S
If you can drop back seats you can get in and manually flick the lever when it is open you will have to go to dealer to see if you can get a key to match or you might get 1 in a junkyard. if this helps please rate me

Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.
The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.
You can try to remove the trunk switch and cross the two wires on the back of the switch if the switch is bad. If that does not work put 12volts to one wire and ground the other to the metal of the car. If the latch release is good it should pop open. If the solenoid on the latch is bad your going to need a lock smith.
To open your trunk there is a lever to the left of the driver seat, on the floor. If you lift this it will pop the trunk. If you have the electronic key fob that came with the car , there is a trunk button on it. If you press the trunk button twice the trunk lid will pop open automatically. You can get inexpensive key fobs on line and program them yourself if you do not have an electronic key fob.
I would test the harness that is currently connected to the button, if you are not getting power you can trace the wire and see if there is a break in the line or if a fuse is blown. If there is power then you have a break in the line that leads to the component that releases the trunk lever or the component itself may be faulty.
Another option would be to remove the harness that is connected and plug in the other harness that is tucked away behind the dash. Ford supplies two harnesses, one to release the trunk without the key and the other harness is a security feature which needs the ignition to be on in order to pop the trunk. This prevents anyone from accessing your trunk without the key.
the frame on the drivers side door as you look down, there is a button the pops the trunk. However, if you cannot open it with the remote, it is not likely that this will work as it uses the same mechanism to open the latch. I would definitely unlock the doors with the key, go to the trunk and make sure the the lock is in the "unlocked state", ad press the button in, it should just open
