This type of fault here can be caused by a faulty trunk latch itself.I have seen the latch fail in the past before causing this issue here needing replaced.When it fails or acts up it will cause all of these issues here.You may have to have a lock smith come out to release the trunk which may involve drilling out the trunk cylinder unfortunately to then open the trunk to check the latch to be sure it needs replaced.If the trunk cylinder is drilled out it will need replaced as well.
That is great to hear the fault has been resolved.In some cases you can get lucky like this here and in others I have seen where the trunk cylinder needs drilled out or a lock smith to use their tools to try and unlock the trunk.If you need anything else let me know and feel free to rate my help if you like.
