Even if the car will not jump start through the lighter, it should accept enough current to open the trunk.

In the void space behind the passenger side headlight, high up in the wheelwell, you should find the looped end of a steel cable. This is the emergency release for the trunk lid. If you don't see it there, jack and support the car, then get underneat the right front fender and look up into that area. It may have slipped down.

You can jump your car via the positive post in the engine compartment, also. Use something soft and thin (paint stir stick, kitchen plastic spatula) to insert below your left side tail light. Pry up gently on the light unit while looking underneath with a light. Should find the same type steel cable loop described above. Fish it out with a thin, hooking tool, piece of wire, etc, and pull to open the engine cover.

Good luck,

Good Info! I saw the cable coiled up when I removed the rear tail light and wondered how anyone would get it out when they needed it as the screws that hold the light assemblies in place require the engine lid to be open. I didn't think about fishing it out with the light in place.
