Default Fisker battery dead. How do I open the trunk

I didn't drive my Karma for about three weeks and the battery died. I know how to get into the car and pop the hood but dont know how to get into the trunk. Is it possible, and if so, how? Thx.

Use the removable mechanical key blade inside the fob...
Open passenger door, pop the hood and put some power on the car.

I know I can do that. I was just hoping that I might be able to connect the battery tender to get some juice into the battery. Unfortunately, the battery tender is in the trunk.

Behind the left rear passenger seat is a pull release for the trunk. You have to pull the back cushion off, sort of lift and pull the cushion and it pops off. You will see a bundle of wires running up and down. Then you will see the release pull, near the top, towards the door side. It's a small black ring attached to a cable.

In many instances the battery tender is unable to charge the battery if the voltage is too low, you may need to use a booster first before the battery tender is able to take over.

That is the correct location but if your pull rings are still black you need to have them updated because the old ones may fail in the event of an emergency. The new ones are supposed to be white.
