Question about 2008 Subaru Impreza Wrx
I can hear it "try" to lock the doors (i.e. seems like there's some sort of actuation power) but locks don't toggle. All windows and doors are closed. This has me baffled.

First, it may seem obvious, but check the fuses associated with the remote unlock. Next, go to Autozone or somewhere like that where they have a remote tester. That will tell if the remote is functional. If the remote works and the fuses are good, see if you can find out how to program remotes to it. It may have forgotten the code for that remote.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the tips, i'll do some investigation.. I'm amazed at the quick reponse! "
The #3 fuse does service both windows and door locks and #2 services a control module that affects door locks.
Inspect them closely since the fuse element can crack when blowing and this is much harder to see.
Pull a least #3 and plug it back in in case the contact blades have stopped comunicating with the mating connector.
To troubleshoot this effectively, you really need a cheap multimeter and the Haynes service manual for your car, #89101.
The manual has very good electrical diagrams in section 12 so you can logically trace the problem. They are available at most every auto parts chain store and cost ~ $20-25 US.

SOURCE: Trunk lock won't open
Usually the problem is that the handle has not returned to the fully down position, probably because it's getting old/rusty.
When this happens on my Outback I just push the handle down until I hear it engage, then pull up and the door opens.
Some people lube the handle regularly. I haven't had to yet.

SOURCE: Rear door will not unlatch.
Sometimes rust will build up on the latch and not allow it to return to the correct position. Try pushing the handle all the way to the closed position and then try your remote lock. Then try to open. The hinge gets build up and does not return all the way. Hope this helps and have a great day.
