Is there a button in your glove box that says, "trunk release ON/OFF"? Or did you try opening the trunk with the car on?

Don't take these as insults... I worked at a stereo shop and had people come in saying there back speakers don't work, because they had there fade turned all the way to the front. So if the above reasons are the whys...heres your sign.

On the SS there is a compartment to the left of the steering wheel, and the remote trunk release is in there..

is there possibly a lock switch inside your trunk to prevent it from working? I know when i had my 99 grand am 2door it had a switch in trunk to prevent you to use the remote & button inside car

On my keyless remote for the SS, you have to hold it down for about 1 second or so and it will pop open.

The Balts trunk release is controlled by the BCM, so if BOTH the key fob AND the button on the dash DO NOT release the hatch, first check to see if the TRUNK RELEASE relay in the underhood fuseblock *clicks* when the button is pressed. While you're there you might as well check the 20A TRUNK/OUTLET fuse. Let us know what you find.

The trunk release button he's talking about is in the little compartment to the lower-left of the steering wheel(took me a few days to find it too )

Yea, it's hiding in what they call the driver's storage compartment (on the LH side of wheel). You'll have to remove the cover off the fuseblock under the hood and listen pretty closely as it's pretty quiet. You might even have to put your hands on the relay (use the label on the cover to find the riht one) to feel it *clicking* as repeatedly you press the button on your remote.
If you just dont want to mess with it, just take it into your dealer.
