Hello and welcome to just answer , my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your patience and input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes and have a couple questions so I can get a better picture what is happening. Did you try the trunk release cable? Have you got more then one key as it may be in valet mode.
