Both doors must be unlocked for total trunk access. If you only unlock the one it will only open once.

With the car running or key on press the close button for 3-5 seconds. Open the top all the way and hold the open button for 3-5 seconds. Close the roof. It will then go through an automatic process of opining and closing the roof. Don't touch it or any buttons while this is happening. When it's done, your roof and trunk will work properly!
