Consult the manual. There's a way to jump directly to the fusebox to power up the electric hatch release. Also, there is supposed to be a manual cable release in the wheel well behind the passenger side headlight. Your mileage may vary.

You can pull the passenger side wheel well back and find the emergency trunk cable immediately behind and on the under side of the light. It is a small metal cable with an eye hook at the end.

Or perhaps it has already been routed behind the pop out towing plug on the front bumper.

Here is a link for more info. PRESS HERE

Thanks for the replies guys. Did a search here and found the link to the manual. Used the procedure with a spare battery and it worked perfectly.
