You may have inadvertently push the lever inside the trunk to LOCK position. That will disable the remote release from the driver seat.

The trunk key hole is probably rusted out. My trunk key has not worked since 1997.

Pull the two tabs on the back seat to gain access to the trunk. Locate the lock latch release tab, close to the trunk latch. Push up to UNLOCK position. Remote release should work now.
