to open it, you have to push the little button that the lock actuator wire goes into. its typically white plastic, about the size of an eraser head on a pencil.

If you have power locks it should unlock your trunk...but it sounds like your battery is dead....

If power is an issue and you can't access the battery in the trunk, there's always the terminal located in the engine bay.

^^^ he speaks the truth. its near the windshield, on the passenger side of the engine bay.

what is the root problem behind this whole scenario, dan?
