Same problem

I bought my car AS IS over the weekend, and today I found out that it has the same problem as yours. It really feels as if something is blocking the key in the trunk lock. I am taking my car to the dealer on Thursday, so please post here if you happen to find a solution short of replacing the lock.

Update

It turned out that the previous owner of my Sentra gave me only a valet key. I ordereded a master key at a local dealer, and now my trunk is accessible with a key. :)

Usually you have to discuss putting your key in the trunk before she'll let you do it. You might piss her off ;)

so the previous owner can still get into the car if he wants (I'm assuming he still has the original master keys?)

By previous owner I meant the used car dealer from whom I bought my car. The car was reposessed by a bank five months after it was originally bought in 2001. Then the dealer got it from an auction, and it stayed on the dealer lot for three years. I doubt that the dealer is going to break into my car.
