OK, I think I see the problem here. Car wont start, and trunk wont open with the button. Neutral safety switch. When the car thinks it'* not in park it will not crank nor will the trunk button work.

I'm guessing the switch may have gone bad. Do you happen to know what transmission you have? I have a few switches sitting on my shelf for the 4t65e

It'* right on top of the transmission, drivers side, a bit to the back. You will see the shifting linkage connecting to it as well as a bunch of wires.

Hopefully that corrects the problem. But what your saying it points to the switch saying it'* in gear. The trunk switch will not work in gear. Only in park.
