Have you tried pressing the button on the door that looks the doors next to the window switch?
#2
i had this problem on a few occasions, once it was a fabric shopping bag caught in the lock and the other was the sleeve of a jacket, both times i had to get in through the car and rip and force item out.
#3
Sounds to me as though you have something trapped in the boot across the boot seal, which is physically preventing the latch from releasing. Its a long time ago but you should be able to get to the latch from inside the car.

I had this problem last winter with my Vauxhall. It happened because my antifreeze pipe froze causing the fuze that controls the pipe/windowwipers/car boot to turn its self off
#5
Well I've never had this problem but I wouldn't be happy if I did. Have you tried just giving it a BOOT !!
#6
Don't damage car body but banging around the catch can work. If not drop back seat down and climb in boot area and have a look if you can? Not all cars let you do this very easily. You can get to the catch bit from inside boot l, I guess something has jammed latch if it can't open with key. If you don't fancy it take to garage.

Worth trying a new battery as my (Honda) stopped working totally and when I checked it was only down 1/2 a volt on a 3 volt battery (CR1616) .
Renewed the battery & working perfectly.

Try changing the key fob battery and if you're still stuck maybe try to gently but firm hitting it around the boot catch area..
#9
if you do change the keyfob battery make sure the batterys are out for no more than a few seconds as if its without battery power it will lose its memory , then youll have a costly reprogramming fee

Happened to me once, found out fuse had blown

If the fuse has gone would that mean you could not open it manually using the key ?

my seat leon car boot lock electric mechanism was faulty.
had to go through the fold down back seat to get into the boot.
not sure about your car but inside the boot of my car, near the boot lock,
there is a slot, where you can put a screw driver into the slot to push the manual lever to open the boot.
in the end i had to buy a lock mechanism from ebay and replace the faulty lock.

I have a switch in by glove box which stops it opening....when I bought the car the first time I went to see it, even the garage didn't know about it.

Have a look at this page it is a later model but the latch mechanism might be similar (item 6 is the emergency opening lever if you can get at it)
