Trunk Won't Open with Key or Release Button

2006 Chevy Cobalt LS . Trunk release button inside car doesn't work, fuse is fine. Key won't open the trunk either, it won't turn. Any help someone can give would be greatly appreciated.

Also, earlier today, the auto parts store diagnostic scanner came back with link failure. So the cars computer could not link up with his scanner. Any thoughts on what is going on with the car??

Check lighter fuse, it powers the OBDII connector. Underhood

Did you pull these fuses out or just checked them with a light?

The trunk lock turned out to be the problem, not fuses or wiring or the release button. Thanks for your suggestions
