All I can do is suggest as my 'Vette's are older.
If my research is correct, I did find that the decklid latch mechanism is released by a cable. The cable probably has stuck in the cable sheath, due to years of neglect, (Failure to periodically lube the cable. Hint/hint)
You need to manually release the decklid mechanism.
Now bear with me, as again, my 'Vette's are older, ('70 and '76), and their seats tilt forward.
If you can tilt the passenger seat forward, perhaps you can get in there and lube this cable through it's sheath. (Use penetrating oil at first. I would then remove the cable, and clean it, then lube it, after getting the decklid open. Lube? White Lithium in a spray can)
Then try to pull the latch mechanism in the direction the cable would pull it, to release it.
(The cable may be broken?)
Yes! Whoever does this feat of magic, of getting to that decklid mechanism, will look like a contortionist! Hit the jacuzzi afterwards! lol!

To lower the top.
1) open the drivers door and under the fiberglass cover there is a lever
that will release the two pins that hold the rear cover down.
2) lift up the rear window part of top and reach under again to press
button that will release fiberglass cover. ( there is also a button on the passenger door which is visible with the door open.) this is a electric relay switch which will produce a clicking sound and top will come up.
3) release the two levers on the front of the cover by pulling toward you.
4) fold cover in compartment and fold levers back to folded position.
