If you don't hear a click when you press the trunk button it would suggest there is either a wiring issue or the solenoid for the lock is not working, its mounted in the lower lock mechanism.

The grinding in the heater motor could be as simple as a twig has fallen down the side of the air supply vents for the fan. If its not that, the previous owner could have replaced the fan at some point, and not installed it squarely and its slightly out of balance making it rub against the fan motor mount.

For your trunk latch problem, check the wiring where the harness goes past the trunk lid hinge, it could have been pinched/worn/broken.
