Silly but. Did you try the door key? It should work unless the GB or Door locks were changed.

No trick, it is most likely locked, use a putty knife an pry it open carefully near the center where the latch is, it will pop open

Cant get the key to turn in the door lock


You may be trying with a valet key.
Valet keys usually can unlock the driver's side door and start the car, but can't unlock the trunk or the glove box. This key is normally used when someone else operates your vehicle, such as a valet parking attendant.

My husband and I have a 1994 Cadillac Seville STS with a trunk release malfunction. We have tried to open the trunk by inserting the key in the lock, but the key will not turn. Until today, we were...


Does the key you have open the driver door? Do you have a keyless entry key fob, does it work? you also might try removing the glove box and disconnecting the wires from the trunk button and touching them together with a paper clip or other small wire but before you do that look in your owners manual a determine which fuse is for the trunk release and check the fuse then the last would be to have GM dealer check to see if the key you have is the proper key fror your car and if it may be worn out

Trunk does not open with button inside car. Does open with key remote. Is there a bad fuse somewhere and if so which one?


Your Valet cancel switch is set.


Open your glovebox and you will see a pushbutton on the the left side, if memory serves. When this button is set, the power button will be disabled, but the key fob button will still work.
This is for when you Valet your car, you push the cancel button in the glovebox, lock the glovebox, then give the Valet your Valet key, which will not open the trunk or the glovebox. Voila, no Valet rummaging through your trunk :)

Often full gloveboxes will be the cause of the button getting pushed accidentally.

Trunk will not open using the button on the door or the key remote. There is no key entry.


Some cars have an over ride switch in the glove box, which allows you to lockout a valet. You simply shut off the switch and lock the glove box and the valet cannot access the trunk without the master key to unlock the glove box. See if you have one that has been shut off by mistake.

How do I get in?


There should be a button to the left of the glove box that you can press and will release the glovebox. If this does not work your glovebox may be stuck as mine has done from time to time. I usually press on the button and place my hand on the back of the glovebox and pull lightly. This should get it open.
