Have someone push down on the trunk while pulling on the release or turning the key, Sometimes something in the trunk is pushing up against the trunk lid and is too tight for the release to work, If that dosn't work you can remove the rear seat by reaching in where the two seat cushions meet and pulling up on the bottom one first then once the bottom one is out, you can pull out of the back cushion at the bottom.
