Hi, I drive a 2004 dodge Intrepid with a 2.7 in it. I recently got the car so I don't know if there has been any previous work done on it. I have the remote for the car, and it works great for anything but opening the trunk. When I click the button on both the remote, and inside the car to open the trunk nothing happens. I have to use the key to open it. Not that this is a big deal, I wold like to just try and fix it. If any one has any idea as to why this is happening some guidance would be greatly appreciated

Probably a break in the harness that leads to the latch. It frequently breaks at the bend where the trunk opens.

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.
