Hello! It's real easy. Just apply battery voltage to any of the fuses or fuse box/distribution center on the vehicle and that will allow enough power to the electrical system to pop the trunk. You can even connect power to the big wire going to the back of the alternator and that should do the trick! I would recommend to use an external jump pack to do this.
