Listen for the relay to click when you hit the switch. It'* hard to hear, so removing the hushpanel trim may help you hear it.
Try releasing the trunk with the fob or switch with the trunk OPEN. Do you hear it? If so, the latch is misadjusted causing it to bind, and the force of the release mechanism can't overcome it. Sometimes a light lubrication is all you need.
It makes a sick ATTEMPT at trying to operate (open or closed), but i believe the solenoid is just dead.
I've tried all those things, i think my mother doesn't care enough to screw with it.
Thanks again, you've been very helpful
