3050rpm I tried various key positions and lifted heavily on trunk lid, still no luck. The rear seats do fold down and I looked around in there and have ruled out the rubber seal theory.
I'm wondering if a previous owner slammed the trunk and jammed some metal together or something?
The owners manual says some confusing things about the trunk, master key, and the inter-relation between the cars anti-theft system. However I'm not sure my particular car has an anti-theft system.
I'm thinking the old WD-40 in the key mechanism. My other thought is that perhaps there is seperate fuse for the trunk?
I'm going to re-read the trunk and anti theft paragraghs in the owners manual. I'm optomistic and still thinking it's something simple.
