Hi I'm kev are you able to lay rear seats down to access emergency release handle on inside of boot

no ,they are closed by handles inside of trunk.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
is there someway to maybe remove back seat?
Expert:  Kevin replied 2 years ago.
Not from in car I was just checking my info you say you have tried jumping from under hood this did nothing ? This should work as effectively you are just connecting another battery it needs stable voltage though battery charger might not be enough (I'm assuming you have trickle charger)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have a 40 amp battery charger .it reads o when I hook it up.
Expert:  Kevin replied 2 years ago.
Yeah that's your problem it wont charge as it doesn't detect battery jump leads will do the trick
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I tried jumper cables connected to the charging spots and also got no response
Expert:  Kevin replied 2 years ago.
This should work .other than this it's gonna be a case of trying to get a wire or something through rear seats to release handle it's on right hand side off boot
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
