First determine whether you car has an electric trunk or not.
That means, is there a remote that will open your trunk, or does it only open with a key.
If it has a remote, something or someone has that radio signal that is making it open improperly.
You may need to take it to a locksmith or a Chevrolet dealer to have it straightened out.
If it has no remote, and only opens with a key, I suspect the trunk latch is out of adjustment, either it is loose, or was bent in a car wreck and improperly repaired.
In that case, tighten it, or adjust the latch so it no longer does that.
God bless your efforts.

How can tell which lower motor mount is bad on my 2004 chevy impala 3.4 liter ? Does a bad motor mount make the engine have grinding noises after running the car?

With the park brake on, start the engine with the hood open so you can see it through the windshield. Put it in reverse and give it some gas, if the engine moves up, you have a broken mount. Do the same in drive. If the motor moves up then the mount on the side of the engine that moved up is broken. If these tests don't show a broken mount then your grinding noise is coming from elsewhere.

To get in my 2004 impala through the trunk to unlock it

Hope your trunk is not full! Remove the rear seat. Remove the rear seat back rest. You will now see a shiny black mat, lift that mat up and crawl into the trunk and open the latch from inside.

I have a 2006 chevy impala ss i took it to the dealership because my trunk wont open they said it was the actuator which got replaced and still wont open what to do now

Does it open with the key? Is it binding or sticking in some way? Did the dealer actually check it out or did just tell that was the probably the problem. Do you hear the actuator clicking like it's trying to open? If you don't hear the actuator you may want to check the fuse, the owners manual will tell you which fuse it is. Also, I'm pretty sure the trunk won't open from the drivers seat unless the vehicle is in park,
