I think you may be having trouble with the wiring that runs on the left side from the trunk to the trunk lid. I was having trouble opening my trunk and noticed that when I moved the wires in the harness at the bend, I could get the trunk to work. I imagine one of the wires has metal fatigued after 10 years of bending and unbending. I never did find the troublesome wire, but managed to orient it so that it would work and then put a rubber band around it and it has worked since.
