If it works fine with the key, then yep, you wasted your money on a latch. Can you hear it 'click' or try to release when you use the fob or button? If not, have you checked fuses? If you can hear it click make sure it is connected to the latch. You should have had to remove the electric part to change out the latch.

The electric release has to be attached to the latch you said you replaced. Is it attached or just hanging loose in the trunk?
