Is the key for ignition valet or master key? Is it the latch , or the switch that's controling the latch , that is not responding? Keyless entry have trunk release? If it does, remember you usually have to hold the trunk release down for two seconds, not like the door locks , which are quicker to respond. ....Just random thoughts , hope they help. Good luck.
