When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise
1. make sure you have the right key
2.spray some WD 40 into the key slot
3 Push doe on trunk lid as you turn the key.
4. When you get it open, Lubricat the lock and latch mechanism with a grease, not oil. The oils in the grease will find its way around to the moving parts Good luck. Don't force the key to turn. and don't bottom it out when you insert it.
I vaguely recall reading something in the owners manual of my '97 328 regarding the trunk and the master key. Something about locking things with the master key so that valets cannot open your trunk with the valet key.
Try unlocking the driver door or the trunk with the master key (the original key that had the LED flashlight in it.
