Trying to open trunk with no power

Use jumper cables from another car-put the positive jumper cable on the post on the starter where the battery cable connects, then the negative jumper cable to a ground on the frame of your car. Turn on the car you are jumping with and let it run about 10 minutes. It might charge up your battery in the trunk enough to open the trunk.

My Chevy 2,000 Mailbu will not start. Sometimes when I try to start it the trunk will pop open. Can you please help?!

Its time to replace the battery. This is common in Chevy cars, if the battery goes bad it doesn't hold a charge anymore. Whats happening in your case is the low voltage isn't keeping the trunk relay closed. When you turn the key all the juice goes to the stater and lets the truck pop open. Just to prove my point, give it a jump start and it will fire right up and the trunk will stay closed.

Car won't start and trunk wont pop open

All electrical users are dependent on battery condition; the starter draws 120-200 amps of current and drops even a good battery down a volt or two.
The tolerance of such niceties as the door locks and trunk release are also dependent on the battery and the voltage and current needs for them to perform can vary widely so if the battery is low, many items will cease to operate properly, the starter first and foremost since its needs are way beyond the load represented by the accessories.
If this problem occurs suddenly, the battery may be OK but its post clamps may not be contacting any longer so cleaning the battery posts and the clamps that sit on them is the first thing to try. You can do a basic check to determine if battery or clamps are at fault by having a friend with a meter check across the battery and trying to start the car; if one measures directly on the battery posts and the battery stays at 12.6 volts while trying to start the car, then the battery clamps or the connection at the starter is at fault. Alternately, if the meter probes are placed on the battery clamps and the voltage plummets when the stater is tried, the clamps are definitely at fault.     A special wire brush with a male and female end can be had at any parts store and will do a good job on the two mating parts.
NOTE: When fussing around with your battery, ALWAYS remove the ground (negative) clamp FIRST. If your tool bumps something that is grounded, nothing bad will happen and then the positive one next because if you then get between the positive post and some chassis part, again, nothing will happen because the negative end is already separated from the chassis.
