I do not think that the problem with your trunk has anything to do with your central locking. Here's why I think that. When I first got my car the battery was completely trash, I had to use a jump start pack to get the car to turn on but drove it and it seemed to hold a charge. Then I left the car alone for a few days and came back and the battery was dead. If when the battery is dead how is it that I could open the trunk and get to the battery to replace if it require electricity to open the trunk even while using the key?
Perhaps you are using the wrong key? If it's not a master key it will not open the trunk. Or perhaps the trunk lock is stuck.

SInce you have no power to do this the trunk stays in "double lock". The most locigal solution is to get the car power. THe jump start method will work. You must keep the jumper car connected for a while tho (10 minutes, 20 minutes.. whatever it takes). At certain intervals I would try to lock & unlock the doors untill there is enough power for the double lock to disengage. Most people assume that right away the car is jumped and good to go, but in extreme instances where the car is left for months you will need to keep em connected a while to build up enough juice.
