#21 is the motor that moves the cables #24 That open and close the lid latches #19.

It's under the rear seat. But be careful, I've read that the plastic cover on the motor holds the drive gear in place, so.... there is a post somewhere that talks about the motor gear slipping out of place so the cables don't close and lock the lid.

You may wish to manually drive the cables by using the hex crank. Push the large button to disengage the motor from the gear, and hand crank the gear to see if you can manually lock the compartment lid latches.

Good luck.
