Broken trunk

I got my car 2 months ago, all the ways to open the trunk worked. Now the button on my key is the only thing that works! The button inside my car doesn't work no matter if the car is on or off, in drive or park and the handle on the trunk lid doesn't open by the handle if the car is unlocked or not. I tried locking/unlocking the trunk manually with no luck of fixing my problem! Please help!!!

This may or may not help but it's worth a try.
Is your glove box locked? If so, unlock it and try your trunk.

It sounds like your car is in "Valet" or "Hotel" mode which is to keep your trunk contents locked to everyone except those with the "owner" key. Check your owners manual.
Good luck and let us know what you find.
