Just pressing the button once won't open the trunk, you have to press and hold the button in for about 2-4 seconds
Aside from the fact that the problem was resolved 5 years ago--only the remote button needs to be held down for over 2 seconds--the trunk release inside the car does not.

Wow, my old thread is still alive Every winter the valet button issue happens to me two, three times. So after 6 years of ownership, I'm sure it's not me, it's the button.

Default 06 GS300 Trunk is not working

So today was once of my worse days ever. I just started a job with with a construction company and I am a board member for the Little Saigon Foundation. I guess the CEO had made some type of arrangements for them to use tables and canopys for the Lao New Year Festival. I got a call around 10 from some folks asking where Im at and that the tables and tents were suppose to be delivered at 9am. I knew nothing about this collaberation and spent the whole day running around looking to tents and tables. Finally got a hold of tem and dropped them off at the venue. Soon that I noticed that one of my side skirts were damaged from a pot home. FYL right. I got home to get the printed material out of the trunk and it will not open for the life of me. So not really thinking I had pt all the all the marketing materials in the trunk. I tried everything from using the factory keys, the remote,,, > N I had one of thees guyes I found online and he did a ok job. My trunk now no longer close are he got it open. The trunk will not lock completely. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

How do I know it's wintertime in Chicagoland?..... my trunk won't open. Every year, never fails At least I know that all I have to do is push that button in the glove box.
