Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

No vehicle information was posted with the question but there is usually a way to manually open a trunk in the event of a dead battery. Either way you could always open the hood and apply power at the jump start post, open the trunk and access the battery.

What year and model is the vehicle?
You're able to open the doors and hood?
