Go under the hood and pop off the fuse box cover in the passenger front of the engine compartment. You will see a large 80 fuse with two small nuts on it. Place the red positive lead of a booster to either stud then the black ground lead to the vehicle body. This will give you enough power to open the trunk electrically with the switch or remote.
