Hello and welcome to

If you have a black master key there is a trunk lock cylinder in the XK emblem on the back.

I have a black key with a green cat face emblem in the middle of the key
Ok good. There is a trunk lock cylinder in the middle of the X and K in the emblem on the passenger side rear. If the lock cylinder is seized then you can go under the hood and locate the fuse box on the driver side. Next to the fuse box is the positive cable. Pull up the rubber boot and install the red positive lead of your jumper/booster there and then install the black ground lead to the vehicle body. This should give you enough power to open the trunk with the remote or either switch.
