Arrow Alternative Battery Points

I have a C180 Merc, and I need access to my boot. The key does not open said boot, the central locking needs power to operate.

Is there alternative battery points in engine/bonnet area or anywhere else within car.

I thank you all for your speedy replies to this dilemma.

I own different models, but to my knowledge all models have mechanical key to open the boot, or trunk in such incident. Is your lock damaged?
Some models have jumping prongs under the hood, but hooking up jumper to fuse box main rail should do the trick. Be careful as doing it wrong way can fry some electronic modules.
