Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** he closed something in the trunk latch it will be hard to open the trunk. This is going to be a mechanical problem not an electrical problem. I would tell him to insert the key into the trunk lock then turn the key counterclockwise all the way to about the 10 o'clock position. Hold the key in that position then push in on the trunk lock and pull up hard on the lid.
