I've never owned a sedan, but on my wagon I just push the button on the door and it just cycles, and then I go out back to pop the latch/open it.
Is the sedan different? are you expecting it to open on its own?
Is the mechanism not working at all? Have you tried just lubing up the parts with some grease?

|nowhereman||it is probably stuck/frozen. easiest fix is a new trunk release. you may want new upgraded struts for the trunk as well. then it might pop open when you hit the release (i always wanted to this but never got around to it)|

Trunk won't open in below 37degree weather
Car is an 02 9-5 and I'm cold weather below 37 degrees. Once it's warmer it works fine. When I press the button I can hear it sent a signal to the trunk actuator but nothing will happen. Any ideas?
