Go threw the back seat, should be access to the trunk there, then there should be a safety release to pull to open the trunk.

Sorry, I would have to look at it, I'd check to see if there is a fuse blown, you would think the key would open it, what good is a key then if it don't? Thats why maybe going threw the back seat to open the trunk, then maybe see why all this is not working.

Carla, when pushing the trunk release, have someone pull up on the trunk lid. Then have someone look to see why it does not pop open when just hitting the release button.
