ive crawled into the trunk from my back seat to open a trunk. there should be a release in the trunk. Many sedans made since 2000 have a 'valet switch' in the back that prevents unauthorized use of the vehicle's trunk when they only have a valet key. You may have accidentally clicked it over to activate this without even realizing it
