Trunk and Fob Questions

I just bought a used 2009 cobalt. It did nor come with a key fob or a spare key. Where can I get a spare and a fob?
I canít open the trunk. The key wonít turn in the trunk keyhole, and the button next to the steering column doesnít seem to do anything. The car didnít come with an ownerís manual, so Iím stuck. How do I get the trunk open?

On the '08 it's in the change drawer to the left of the steering wheel.. button right inside of the top left of the compartment.

For the fobs, I bought mine off of Amazon and had the locksmith rekey the trunk (I replaced it when I got it) and program the fobs. My '08 won't reprogram by hand, has to be done with tools. The '09 might be different.

Thanks for thee info about the fob!
I was able to find the trunk release button in the drawer next to the steering column. When I push the button, nothing happens. I can touch wires behind the button and the base of the button (where it plugs in) seems pretty warm. Iím wondering if thereís a short in the wires.
This weekend, Iím going to check with the place I bought the car and see if they have a fob or any ideas on whatís going on. Maybe they forgot to get me the fob somehow.
