My 2008 Charger RT's trunk has stopped working. When I push the trunk release button(left of steering column), and on my key chain; I do not here the accuator engage. I have checked all the fuses and relays. They alll seem to be working. Does anyone know the particular fuse number, relay number, or even the wire in the harness that goes to the trunk lid? It would also be great to if someone had a schematic for that part of the car, that I could print off and reference.
Sometimes the fuses and relays in the front and rear PDC vibrate a bit loose. Push on every one and give a wiggle. If that doesn't work try to manually releasethe trunk then hit the release button and see if the servo makes a noise. Also you can pull the wiring clip from the trunk servo and reseat it. The servo may have gone belly up.

i experienced the same issues earlier this year. i had wiring (3 of 5 wires) that broke apart inside the rubber sleeve that runs from trunk lid to trunk. i had to splice/solder in small sections of wiring to get enough slack.

Does using the key manually work ?
If not pop it from the release inside the trunk (drop the seat and crawl in)
Then there is a clip on the lock set that is likely broken. removing the plastic trim should make it rather obvious where/if the clip is missing.
Had that as an issue last fall in a local members Charger.
have repaired a few with broken wires in decklid jumper harness.
ensure brain is in gear before engaging mouth.
four out of six of my wires were broke, re-attached with heat shrink clips and all is good now. this site is the best for info!!
I have a 2006 Charger R/T and hardly ever used the trunk...the mechanism went bad but could still open it manually...I tried to get Dodge to ante-up some of the repair cost but was denied...though to their credit, they have helped on various suspension issues...around $200 (if I remember correctly) for the labor and new mechanism...went on the net and found others had similar issues even without using the trunk that often...still, the best car I have ever owned...
