This may help once you get the trunk opened
I had mine do that on my '97. But the trunk button worked. I took the cover off the trunk lid to get access to the tumbler. I then sprayed some Rust cure inside the tumbler. Rust cure also is a penetrating lube as well as rust protectant. Anyhew I inserted the key inside and tried to turn it with no luck. So I took a hammer and hit the rear of the tumbler while trying to turn the key, at the same time. After a few minutes it freed up and I sprayed more rust cure inside and spent about 5 minutes turning the key to work it through. When I was done I sprayed a bit more in. That was last fall. I haven't had a problem since.
