Default Trunk won't open with remote or trunk release button

Hi,
I have been trying to search for clue but have not found anything so far. My 2002 CL500 trunk won't open with remote or the release button. I can hear humming noise coming from the trunk when pressing the remote, or pull the trunk release button on the door panel. I notice when I pull the trunk release button, the light on the button does not lid. I have a 2001 E430, and I know the light lid when I pull the button release. Anyone have any suggestion where to look? Thank you in advance

Sorry to mention that key blade work just fine. Need to figure out why the remote or trunk release button is not working. Can someone also confirm when you pull the trunk release button, does the red light on the button lid? Thanks,

Had a similar problem. Took it to the shop and was working fine before but not after, they reprogrammed it and it worked fine.

I took the trunk lid liner off today and figured out the problem. It is the black round plastic (not sure what it call) next to the trunk lock. When the release button is push, this thing is leaking air, and I can feel the air coming out of it. some of the plastic clip that hold it together has broken off, and seem like when the release button is push, this round black is leaking air, and get pushed out a bit on the side of the broken tab. Does anyone know what this thing is and how to remove it to replace? Thank you in advance

i have the same problem in my 2002-cl500 and i can also hear the humming noise coming from the left side of the trunk at all times and the trunk won't open without using the key. i finally took the fuse out and the humming stopped but what i need to do is remove the left side trunk liner to inspect the source of the humming. does anyone know how to remove the left side liner?

I had the same problem...I have a2002 cl 600...when you pull the trunk liner off you will see a sey of two hex screws...take them off to access the whole trunk unit..the black push ( thing) can be pushed out of its mount ,,take the air line off and glue the black thing together. Be careful not to glue the push pin or rubber bellow in the black thing
