Sounds like the battery is dead. Go under the hood and remove the plastic retainers holding the cover in the passenger rear engine compartment. Pop off the fuse box cover and you will a large fuse with a metal end coming up. Install the red positive lead of your booster there and the black ground lead to the vehicle body. This should supply enough power to open the trunk electrically to properly charge the battery. Let me know
