Hello and welcome to justanswer.com
There is actually a lock cylinder on the trunk lid under the chrome strip above the license plate. Then if we can get the trunk open we can recharge the battery. If this is not an option pop off the wood grain surround on the shifter and on the driver side there is a small lever that you have to move with a long flat blade screwdriver while you try and move the shifter. Let me know.

Sorry for the delay.
On the driver side of the shifter is the lever. It is hard to see so use a flashlight and look down. Here is a link to a picture.
