I have seen this before, each time i have seen it i have to reprogram the valet key. This needs to be dont at the dealership, make sure you bring the master key otherwise they cant program the valet key.

ok, if the key won't open this then the lock is jammed and if you don't want to damage anything, I know I wouldn't, I would take it to a mechanic. The jammed may have been what killed your battery if the valet trunk open was not working it may have been shorted out. There is a way to jump vehicles with the battery in the trunk like that but I am not familiar with it and if the buttin doesn't work to release the trunk it would do you no good anyway. most likely you are looking at replacing teh truck locking mechanism.

Open the boot lid and drivers door, and switch on the ignition. Rock the
valet switch, in the centre console, 5 times. The system will chirp to
indicate it has entered learning mode.
On models with seat/mirror/steering wheel memory functions, the first remote will be linked to memory 1, second to memory 2 etc.
Press the larger, lock, button of the remote. The system will chirp to confirm it has got the signal. If it doesn't receive any signals for 15 seconds, it will chirp twice and exit learn mode.
To programme further remotes, rock the valet switch once. The system will chirp twice for remote number two, three times for number three etc, then press the lock button of the remote as above.
When finish, wait 15 seconds for the system to time out and chirp twice, turn off the ignition, close the doors and boot lid and the job is done!
