It sounds like the tumblers might be "frozen" or stuck. Try spraying WD-40 into the lock before inserting the key. Use the plastic straw that comes with the can, insert one end into the nozzle hole and the other end inside the lock. Don't be stingy. Let set a minute or two and then retry the key.

how do i replace a trunk lock with another lock that has a key
Put your key in the trunk lock and turn.
If the key doesn't turn at all, make sure you have the right trunk key, i.e. one that worked before. Many times the ignition and trunk key are different. If it is the right key then the cylinder may be frozen. The remote opens the latch a different way. Try spraying some liguid wrench into the key hole and keep trying to turn it. if the works spray silicone spray or lock lubricant to oil the lock afterwards. If the cylinder does turn and doesn't release the door, look inside to see if the inside lock mechanism is broken.
unlock the doors and then push the button on the trunk. If the trunk lock key slot is horizontal you will need to use the key to turn it vertical. Then it will function with the central locking system

use the trunk key and turn it one way or the other in the trunk lock and hold it for a few seconds. This should disarm it.
I came across this problem. There is a lock below the steering wheel that will cause the trunk lever to disengage when it is pushed in. Use the master key to turn the lock (located below the steering wheel). It must be the master key. Without the master key you will need to remove the lock (located below the steering wheel). Good luck.
