this morning i go to load my car for work, i hit the button on the remote for the trunk, it worked fine, i get to work hit the button on the inside of the car to release the trunk, it doesnt open, no clicking noise either, so i immediately try the remote, same effect, and being i didnt hear the click that the trunk usually makes , i think its a fuse, so i check the owners manual and there is no listing for a trunk release, wth! so i call the dealership and we all know what they said...brothers can we say it in unison.."bring it in, we have to look at it" so i ask him " how much will that cost?" 'well theres a service charge" he omits how much , and he couldnt tell me if theres a specific fuse for the trunk...i looked through the book thrice, ..nothing... anyone have this problem before?? i decided to post this question here and not on the other forums because here i know i'll get an answer , and not some dumb replies like "why are you using the trunk so much" or other unecessary replies
Open up the trunk with your key and make sure you didnt pull the plug off the motor. If you cant use your key then open the rear seats and pull the manual release. I believe the fuse might be in the trunk as well. Good luck.

thanks guys, well i used my key, and it works fine, no problems with the key, so i shut it, folded my seats and used the trunk latch to see if that would work, it did, so the only thing left to do is try fuse 1, 17, 18...keep u posted
I had the same issue, checked all the fuses front and rear, pulled the rear latch assembly out and tested it on a chrysler 300 and hit the fob and the release worked. I then went back and pulled the rubber connector from the trunk lid to the car and found a broken wire, put a patch wire in between and sealed it good and hit the remote and I am in business again.
