Hello, since you have access to the interior of the vehicle you should be able to gain access to the trunk through the rear seats if they are a fold down seat and pop the trunk from the inside by pulling the yellow release handle on the trunk latch. If not you can pop out the trunk release switch and verify it doesnt have power with the key off and run a jumper wire to the switch to apply power to it and pop the trunk actuator.
