Something broke on the lock mechanism. In order to open the trunk, you will have to remove the rear seats and try to access the trunk area. Once you are in the trunk, you should be able to manually open the lock and investigate what broke.

SOURCE: trunk release button won't work, remote will

not entirely sure about your buick, but I have a 2000 pontiac that has a switch just inside the glovebox that deactivates the trunk switch. that, together with locking the glovebox would prevent someone with jsut the valet key from gaining access to the trunk area.

SOURCE: The trunk won't latch shut. It has the interior

Try this forum. I had the same problem and they were saying to take off the trunk release actuator. I did and it worked. Don't take the whole piece off of the trunk lid (although if you do, it's easy to put back on), but take the one piece (the actuator) off of the latch. I don't know anything about cars and I was able to do it. Not hard at all. Take a look at the forum:

It seems like the Trunk Release Actuator is not working. Most likely it will need to be replaced with a new one.

My trunk won't open. What's wrong


Hi Annette, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Annette, if you are already able to get inside the trunk, remove the lever that goes to the lock actuator because the actuator may be locked up. Then see if it will open. NOTE: If the lock solenoid is mounted to the latch this will not work. If that doesn't help, then see if you can remove the bolts that hold the latch to the trunk and open the trunk that way so you can see better what the problem could be. Keep me posted at my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/
