And isn't there a little pokey thingy on the dash or somewhere that opens the

Umm... before you break out the saber saw and cutting torches, are you SURE
that it is not in the valet position?
If it is similar to the trunk lock on my '94 SL, the MASTER key can be used
to set or free the valet lock mechanism from this tumbler, rendering the
trunk inaccessible if the valet key or even the master key's remote control
is used. When set to the valet position, the MASTER key must be inserted and
the tumbler reset, or you just ain't gonna' get in there!
The lock functions are as follows:
Normally, the keyslot will be at the 12 o'clock position (straight up and
Inserting the Master and turning CW to the detent (1 o'clock position) locks
the trunk, while moving it fully CW (beyond the detent to the 2 o'clock
position) sets it to valet mode.
The only way to gain access to the trunk at this point is by inserting the
MASTER key and turning it back past the 1 o'clock detent, disabling the
valet lock. Continue turning the key all the way CCW to the 10 o'clock
position and it will unlock (the remote or valet key will not work until the
tumbler has been reset in this manner).
