2009 TSX Trunk won't open!!!

So my trunk does not open...not with FOB, not with the button on the door and not with the button by license plate. I have checked the switch inside the glove compartment as mentioned in the blog and that is "on".
We were thinking it was a problem with the latch because we would pound on top and after some pounding it seemed to "loosen" it or something and we would press the button on the FOB/door/license plate and it would open. Now, that won't even work! HELP!!

Any suggestions??

It could be the rubber seal on the trunk jamb that is causing it to stay close. Maybe spray some lubricate, I don't know what but give it a try.

Honda Shin-Etsu Grease is the best for those rubber seals.
