Answers :

Is there a button inside the car to open the trunk? If yes, you can jump the car from the engine compartment to open the trunk. Open the hood and connect the negative jumper to a chassis or engine ground point. There are several possible places to connect the positive jumper. If there is a relay box with a big terminal on it and large red wire attached, that will work. The terminal on the back of the alternator will also work--the one that has a wire held on by a nut. The starter is another place to jump positive--the big terminal there on the top of the solenoid. Just be careful not to touch the positive jumper to anything BUT these terminals. Click the button to open your trunk and disconnect the jumpers. If you need help with finding out why the battery is dead or have any other questions, please let me know.
To open the trunk with a dead battery, open the drivers door, flip the seat forward and you should find the trunk lock cylinder, it is hooked to the luggage lid latch via cable. If your trunk lock cylinder is broken then you will need to grab a pair of pliers and pull on the release cable until the trunk lid pops open.
