The problem is that your roof(SOFT TOP) lid isnt closing properly. If you open the roof lid you see there is a button on one of the latches that tells the car that the roof is securely closed if your roof lid is not secure the trunk wont open. To test this press down on the roof lid and the try to open the trunk.

the promblem is that when the top is raised that the wire to the lock motors is hhot on both sides so the motor doesn't no to open or close and the rear hatchwill not come down

dont quote me here but i think if you manually close the hood then it put the motors out of sync,and then new ones have to be fitted ?? think it depends on the year
