The trunk closes all the way. The drivers side and passenger doors will lock all four doors with the key, just not the trunk. The trunk will not lock with the key. I use the alarm because its more convienent, but the lock- except the trunk- work with the key.
Isn't the button supposed to turn and go into the lid when it locks. It turns but won't stay in the lid when you push the key into the lock. Does that make sense?

Turning the key to so that the slot is flat should lock the trunk. It stays out the same distance. If it doesn't lock, the linkage has probably come loose. There are plastic grommets that come out sometimes........
The trunk lock actuator is probably the culprit though...
