could also be the solenoid/actuator that's on the trunk lid itself (look where the latch is-remove the covering and you should see the latch mechanism and the solenoid).
Had an Escort that it happened to. couple bucks at the wreckers and top 30 min and it was fixed.
EDIT: btw welcome to the forum. test the wiring at the connection on the latch.. this way here if it's getting power then you know it's the solenoid.
