If so then replace the broken part.

They sell the latch at the dealer for 175.00 and you can pay someone to put it on. As long as that piece is broken the trunk will not open.

2012 hard top convertible. The trunk opens but the roof will not unlatch to open and fold in the trunk. Been at a chrysler dealership for a week. They have replaced the computer module twice but that's not the problem. Can you please help
