Apparently the key in the door and the keyless entry work the same electric door lock system ugh :/ wow, all I can suggest is to call the stealership and ask if there is an override for the locks, before you break a window. Can anybody else out there help this poor soul?
I don't know if yours has it or not, but on later models you can pull down the center arm rest/cup holder in the back seat. Behind that is a small panel or door that you can open that leads to the trunk area. If you reach inside the opening and to the left, there should be a pull handle to release the trunk lid.
Normally you wou;d be able to ccess the lock cylinder by the inside of the boot lid and then you have to unhook the actuating rod and the cylinder itself is held to the lid by a fork type metal clip. hope this helps
I had a silimar problem an strange as it sounds replacing the rubber gasket around the top of the trunk fixed it. I had a leak and had to replace the gasket and also the remote wouldn't pop the truck. Jag dealer wanted to replace the entire trunk release mechanism (surprise, usual rip off) for several hundred dollars. I didn't do it and, good surprise, replacing the leaking gasket fixed the trunck release problem.
I have a '99 Deville. Had the same problem. In the glove box, there are two toggles for Traction Control and Valet. Toggle the Valet one and try the remote on your key or the buttons in your dash.
For mine, someone had engaged the Valet to "ON" and locked out the remote trunk and fuel door.
