2006 Honda Accord - trunk latch

trunk remote unlatch does not work, it only partially releases. I can access the trunk manually by the lever on the driver’s side.

So it does work. The button causes the latch to partially release. Lubricate the latch mechanism with a little white lithium grease. Work the latch several times to spread the grease around. If that doesn’t fix it, the latch may be worn out.
