Spray lube in the lock cylinder. Most likely you have to open it from the inside of the trunk and replace the lock cylinder. Remove the back seat to get in the trunk. This is the biggest problem with key FOBs. No one opens a door or trunk with the key. The cylinders corrode and lock up the pins on the inside of them.
Does Lumina sedan have rear seat pass thru to trunk ?? if sedan then a pull tab will be in seat upholstery near shelf / by rear window . pull it crawl in with Light Plus friend on outside to hand tools .. IF VAN must remove interior panels to gain access .. Try small thin needle nose pliers to pick broken KEY Piece out of lock 1 ST . if successful spray in Lubricant before trying another key . BUT must be reason lock jammed -- Frozen by weather change or Mechanism Disconnected due to lack of lubrication or worse Plastic Parts used in assembly by Factory .. DRILLING Lock Out will get it Open but new / used parts to repair are now on your shopping list ..
In most cases the key cylinder is defective, but try this 1st. Get a tube of dry lock cylinder lubricant (about $4) from the hardware store and spray it into the lock cylinder and then work the key around and see if that Free's it up and it turns. If that doesn't work you will need a locksmith to replace the cylinder.
If i were you i would follow air filter hose to the engine then take it off pour a few ounces of Gasoline into engine then try to start this should take air out of the line and the vehicle should resume running again. Good Luck !!!!!!!!
if the key will not turn in the ignition switch then there is a chance that one of the wafers inside the cylinder has split or jammed and is not reading the key proper. ( this is very common with the new Ford ignitions ) --- the best way to fix this issue is to have a automotive locksmith come out and repair the lock, they will remove the troubled wafers ( #1+#2 ).
now before you call the locksmith you can ' TRY ' to spray a small amount of silicone or teflon based lubrication into the lock and put the key in and out a few times and try to get it to release,, ( NOTE: do not spray to much into the lock -- you are not trying to flood it,, just spray a little bit into the very begining of the cylinder and let the lube run down and thru the lock ).
TO REMOVE TRUNK LATCH YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT TRUNK LATCH CABLE FROM LOCK CYLINDER END.THEN YOU MARK TRUNK LATCH RELATIONSHIP TO THE TRUNK LID AND DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR AT THE TRUNK LATCH.REMOVE THE LATCH RETAINING BOLTS AND REMOVE THE LATCH.PUT EVERY THING BACK VISA VERSA.
you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.
