c280 1998 Trunk problems?

Hey, i have posted this on a few sites and having gotten the a solid answer. I have a 1998 C280 mercedes. The other day all of a sudden the trunk will not open, manual with the key nor with the release inside of the car. The directionals wont work, nor the sunroof or the windows with the center console. The windwos do work up and down with the key which doesnt make sense because it is elctronic also. I have checked the fuzes in the engine compartment, everything is fine there. any ideas on how to fix this? compund this, my sons stroller is locked in the trunk. had to spend 200.00 to buy another stroller. I would be so grateful and appreicateive if someone can get me an answer.

Is that year w202 susceptible to the k-40 (k40) relay problem? You might do some searching on those two terms for information about this common problem that might apply. My other thought was that the window switches and the trunk switch on the later W202s is sold as a single unit. I just wonder is there could be some fubar there, especially since they are all part of the CANBUS circuit (your year of w202 may have a different design though).

When you turned your key for the trunk, did you turn it all the way to the left as well as to the right?
