Hi, my name is***** will need to remove the passenger side footrest panel and power the car with jumper cables from the junction block under the panel. Connect the positive jumper to the large cable on the block and connect the negative cable to the chassis then use your remote to open the trunk. Click on the video below.

Please let me know how you make out.

Just checking in. Were you able to get the trunk open?
