My trunk latch hasn't been working for a while, but I'm still able to use the release button my keys. I recently noticed that my right license plate bulb was out so I replaced the bulb today. Even with a new bulb, it doesn't work. So now I'm thinking the trunk latch is associated with the right bulb not working. I'm not sure when the right bulb stopped working, so I don't know if it's a separate issue from the trunk latch or not. Anyone have any information on the possible issue?

Everything in that area corrodes..
I had the same thing happen.
The bulb was fixed by sanding the contacts that hold it.
The trunk button is a lost cause...
Mine hasnt worked in 50k miles...

I would agree with the corrosion theory. If you're still under warranty I would assume it would be covered.

I had taken the chrome bar off when I was struggling to install my LED bulbs for the license plate light. I noticed it is very poorly weatherproofed. Like a very thin line of rubber I think is more to keep it from scratching the paint than it is to keep water out.

I'm not worried as much about the trunk latch. I'm no longer under warranty regardless. I noticed the corroding though, the screws practically broke off when I replaced the bulbs.
