Re: I can't open the trunk
What happens when you use the key? Difficult to turn key, or difficult to insert? Spray wd40 (available just about anywhere) into the lock, try the key again, spray again. If you have a trunk release pull the release as far as you can, holding it while a helper uses a pair of vise grips to lock on the cable, and attempt to pull it further, which may be just enough to release the 'catch" and allow the trunk to open. Good Luck! countrycurt0

Did you check for a loose electrical connector on the trunk lock mechanism? There was a small two prong connector that was loose on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Am I connected it and the trunk button on drivers door now works and when I get a new key fob I am sure it will work.
your car does not have the function on the remote for opening the trunk only i think,
if the trunk stays locked with the central locks,than you should turn the key in the trunk lock for different position,
if now straight,turn to flat,if now horizontal,turn to 6 oclokck position,
This sounds like a bad control or broken wire inside the door, you will need to remove the door panel and check for broken wires, also remove the controls and make sure all connectors are connected good and tight, this is where i would start also just check all of the fuses.
there is 2 options , 1 use a cone cutter and cut a 25 mm hole in tail gate below where your number plate is . op 2 remove covenience ecu and power up tailgate switch obviosly this is not possible if all doors are locked
You can open it old school. Insert the key in the trunk lock in the VW emblem and turn it while pushing down on the trunk lid with the other hand a little bit. It should open. The plastic arm that the motor is pushing to unlock may be broken. I have the same problem. You can see it if you unscrew the fabric from the trunk lid and press the button on the remote. There are about a dozen fuzzy head screws (nicely masked btw.) that hold it. I am still looking for the proper name of the part so I can order it for my car.
