Make sure you didn't accidentally press a valet button. That would lock you out. A lot of the time they are in the glove box or center console. Outside of that, you should have it looked at. There could be something obstructing the lid's ability to move or the latch's ability to release. Of course, there could be a mechanical or electrical issue. We would be happy to help you!
Hello, does the trunk have an actual key cylinder still? If so, does it open with your key? If there is no cylinder, then you'll have to have a diagnosis performed on the electric actuator that opens the trunk latch, or the latch itself. Good luck.
