You might want to check with the dealer to see if you have the correct key. You could try some WD-40 on the lock. As far as getting to your trunk, you could go in from the back seat.
Did you check the circuit going to your lights with a meter?

2008 Cadillac CTS push button to open trunk sometimes works

Do you know anything about automotive electronic's ? The trunk release is controlled by electronic control modules . Having the vehicle check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's should be the first step in the diagnostic procedure . Then reading how it work's !
Factory service repair info.
Rear Compartment Lid Release System Components
• Body control module (BCM)
• Remote control door lock receiver
• Interior rear compartment lid release switch
• Exterior rear compartment lid release switch
• Rear compartment lid release actuator
• Trunk release relay

Rear Compartment Lid Release Operation
The interior rear compartment lid release switch receives a signal from the driver door switch assembly (DDSA). When the interior rear compartment lid release switch is activated, the signal circuit is pulled to ground. The DDSA interprets this and sends a GMLAN serial data message to the body control module (BCM) requesting the rear compartment lid be released. The BCM responds by applying battery voltage to the trunk release relay control circuit which energizes the TRUNK RELES relay. The trunk release relay is supplied with battery voltage at all times. With the relay coil energized, the relay switch contacts close allowing battery voltage to flow to the rear compartment lid release actuator causing the rear compartment lid to release. The rear compartment lid release actuator is permanently grounded at G402.

The trunk release relay is located in the rear fuse box located under the back seat.

I am trying to find out which fuse controls trunk light for 1994 saturn SL1. None of the diagrams in both fuse boxes says trunk light. I tried replacement bulb and it still doesn't work. Please Help

it gets power from the CHIME fuse in the instrument panel junction/fuse block. It should have power on the orange wire. The black and light green wires are the grounds.

Trunk release, interior lights, locks etc does not work


To open the trunk, you could try:
1. using the key, push down on the back of the trunk while turning the key. A word of caution and try not to force otherwise, the key might be twisted cut;
2. use the automatic trunk opener (in the glove compartment). You would need someone to press down on button while another is pushing down on the back of the trunk;
3. alternately, there are some models where the rear seats fold down and opens into the trunk.

On the fuse/interior lights and locks, if you have replaced with a known good fuse and problem persist, it may be caused by:
a. corroded or loose fuse holder;
b. corroded or loose fuse block connector;
c. corroded or loose harness connector (unfortunately inside the trunk);
d. defective wiring harness;
e. loose ground.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
