Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. With everything you tried, the only thing left is to go thru the back seat. The back seat has a way for it to be opened up to access the trunk. Inside the trunk, there is a yellow pull-tab. Pull that tab and the trunk will open. This is a safety feature to prevent anyone being 'mistakenly' locked in the trunk.
