What do you do if your key goes into the trunk lock but will not turn?

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

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

Put your Key in the lock and turn it counterclockwise,,,, Push the button and voila.... the trunk lid opens.....
