If the lock is messed up there is no way to open it without drilling out the lock. Sorry

you can't get into the trunk of a Fiero by crawling behind the seat. The motor is behind the seat. If the key don't work and the electrical switch don't work you have no out except to have the lock drilled out.

It sounds like this is a switch issue based on your description. If the key still works, that will just be what you have to do. If that won't work, then ya you have to drill out the lock. If it's just an electrical issue, you'll have to talk to someone who has that option or look for a wiring diagram or something to figure out the issue. My Fiero does not have the trunk switch so I have no particular experience with it.
