My 2018 HR-V EX works like it should....I wish they would have made a "trunk release" by the driver though.
how did you reach those cables and where they are?Found a possible solution. I was about to change the complete trunk harness when I discovered cables were bent at one of the connectors. Straightened the cables and the View attachment 33079
View attachment 33078
trunk started unlatching without problems, bent the cables again and it would stop working. As a temporary solution, straightened the cables with electric tape and it has been working perfectly since.
