The trunk doesnt open.
Button on the dash doesnt work, key fob doesnt work. No noise when either is pressed.
And manually the key doesnt go in the lock enough to turn. The lock is jammed or something is stuck.


Is there a way to get into the trunk and to the release cord. Or anyother way to get it open?

Try lube in the lock to free that up first, easiest way to get in.

I've seen a post here long ago on just how to reach in with a rod between the seats to release the left seat back. Tough wiggle to get to something you can't see from the description.

First I would pull the switch in the dash and jump the terminals in the plug. See if that opens it. I also had a frozen cylinder on the trunk and wasn't able to free it.

I'd give it a 95% chance that your wire to the latch has broken in the boot between the trunk and body of the car. Very common issue for hatchbacks and isn't unheard of in on the sedans. Second possibility would be a bad latch. Both relatively easy fixes once you can get the trunk open. Try what Sailor and Toby have said and see if that gets the trunk open.
