Sounds like the relay is not working properly, or wherever you had it installed needs to redo the setup.

where is the relay ? It's very strange that the door locks work just fine with the remote, just the trunk won't lock. I even tried to insert the key but I can't trun it to lock or unlock.....very strange..

Take it to an authorised Viper installer. They have all the gadgets to fix the issues.
