    If u have a blown trunk release fuse and your key fob or trunk button doesnt work and u have subwoofer box preventing u from pulling the emergency trunk release the only way is to peel the rear rug up and find the wiring harness that goes to the rear fuse box and also find a wiring diagram for that location and locate the 2 wires for the trunk release fuse and hotwire them together and try the trunk rlease button . Thats the only way i can think of doing it without creating alot of damage to anything

    Is your battery dead? Did you try to manually unlock the doors and start the car?

    Why not move the things blocking the seats from folding down? Sounds easier than pulling up carpet.

    Like Todd said, just manually unlock the car. Even if your battery is dead, you can jump it off from the post under the hood.

    they should've made it so key could be used to open the trunk, yes that key hole would make it ugly lol Ofcourse I don't have anything blocking the rear seat so I can fold that down.

    I think he is saying that once you fold the seats down the Sub is blocking access to the Manual release cable??? if so You can pop the release button out and run a hot wire from the Cig Lighter and touch the wires attached to the button, one will pop the trunk.

    Can't just push the sub box out of the way? Or does it take up the whole damn trunk
