I think I have the same problem on my 2010 -- when I push the remote the release mechanism buzzes for a few seconds until the hood pops up a little
I think (not sure) it is caused by the trunk sticking -- the mechnism that is supposed to pop it up keeps trying and that's where the buz comes from. My local dealer service guy suggested that I coat the gasket/seal with silicone so it does not stick, also maybe wax or polish the area of the trunk lid where the seal hits so that it does not stick. I have not had a chance to try that yet, but it does make sense to me.
Try pulling up on the trunk lid while you press the button, does that make it go away?
However, I also get "trunk ajar" message on the dash sometimes, even when the trunk is securely closed. So it seems there is something else going on back there.
I have already lubed the heck out of both sides of the mechanism with spray silicone lube and it made no difference.
Interested to hear if anyone else has any input on this . . .
