There is a motor back there. You gently push the trunk lid down, then the motor pulls it closed. Fuse #8 15 amp, but usually people damage this system by slamming the trunk lid, then the motor needs replaced. I hope that's not the case; they are $$$ not cheap. if the door locks and the power mirrors work, this fuse is good.
Thjese are kind of tricky systems #1 if someone has slammed the trunk closed this can break the motor drive transmission housing it is plastic #2 this system uses a limit switch so as the motor rises from being open it stops at the top and clicks the reversing switch then when it closes it latches against the pressure switch that starts the motion. ALL THESE SWITCHES ARE OBSOLETE only can get used but used on Oldsmobile (land yacht) 98 and cameros,firebirds hatch backs.
Look for a contact switch in the trunk. Sometimes, when the trunk (or door for that matter) gets slammed, then button gets set deeper. What's happening is door and trunk switches are "self adjusting", and a slam "Self adjusts" too far. It is hard to reset the switch without killing it. Just get another one if you find this to be your situation. Test the switch before you buy a replacment.
check the pull down motor toensure it has not been broken, i have heard of this before and the problem was when it got slammed it broke the motor. as far as not latching release the trunk and see if it will operate normal. if not lightly press it downand see if it will latch than, the semi-cirle catch must be open and will look like a small mouth when it is opened up.
