What happens when you use the key? Difficult to turn key, or difficult to insert? Spray wd40 (available just about anywhere) into the lock, try the key again, spray again. If you have a trunk release pull the release as far as you can, holding it while a helper uses a pair of vise grips to lock on the cable, and attempt to pull it further, which may be just enough to release the 'catch" and allow the trunk to open. Good Luck! countrycurt0

Did you check for a loose electrical connector on the trunk lock mechanism? There was a small two prong connector that was loose on my 2001 Pontiac Grand Am I connected it and the trunk button on drivers door now works and when I get a new key fob I am sure it will work.

Trunk wont open on my 2001 vw tdi jetta

when you hit the key and hear the motor push down on the trunk a few time. quick and hard like you are doing a cpr chest compression. I know it seems counter intuitive to push down to open the trunk but it just may get it un stuck. I know someone who had to do this every so often to get in their trunk
