you may have to get into the boot and remove any trim to the filler tube area. This will give you access to the flap lock system that holds the door closed . If there is a solenoid there you may be able to manually pull the rod that releases the flap lock or move the whole thing to let the flap open
I am so sorry and my condolences to you and family. These central lock systems works with a central processor within the car and which must respond with the remote frequency or the driver lock . If there is no response there can be many reasons but it seems to me that even your driver door key is not opening the lock which means that there is a mechanical issue with the key and lock. Use some WD40 into the lock to clear any dirt, check if the key has worn out if so you can get one duplicated at any center. If the key turns but the lock does not open then the actuator motor is faulty , this must be checked within the driver panel, check for power to the master unit, check the motor and drive to the lock. there can be an open connection in the hinges to the master unit or a mechanical jamming . Take consensus if you are in doubt to proceed.
autobody shops have clever ways to overcome this problem as they see it so often as an upshot of wrecks. so i suggest you drop by one and slip them a 10 dollar tip to do it for you. put the seats down so you can get in and replace the lock mechanism when you get a new one.
there is a microswitch on the right side under roof cover if roof cover not fully down boot is locked shut by microswitch you might be able to press on cover and you may here boot lock solinoid click off get some one to push boot lock if you can.t reach when you get in boot /trunk you should see small wire that travels across rear bulkhead disconnect this and trunk/boot lid will open but roof will not obviasly i,ve worked on one of these all day today and have had every thing wrong with roof you could imagine good luck
If it is the same as the 2007 model.
The top of the key is a small slide switch.
You slide it and pull a vanity key out.If the glovebox has been locked it also possibly locks the boot with the same switch.
You will probably need to put key in glovebox lock and turn counter clockwise.
That key is to lock the seats to stop anyone getting into the boot via the fold down system as well.
Same thing happened on my Focus. I suspected dirt had been preventing the boot from fully locking. A generous application of WD40 on the locking mechanism located on the boot seems to have resolved the problem.
