Customer Question
The trunk key will...

The trunk key will not open the trunk and there is no inside trunk release that I can see. Its a 1986 Pontiac parisienne

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried silicone spray or WD-40?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Parisienne yourself? What have you tried so far?

Mostly the silicone spray. Tried to see if there was a release for the back seat, if there is I cant see it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really

greetings,

Have you considered replacing the lock cylinder? Do you have a drill with some bits?

wd-40 or PB blaster would be the best way but if the lock is damaged or even that rusty it may need to be removed. You could drill it out and open with a screw driver without damaging the trunk. Most parts places sell replacement cylinders and should be under 20$. let me know how it goes good luck
