manually entering trunk

I believe that the alternator went out on my 2001s430. The battery is dead this morning. How do I manually access my trunk.? I tried using the key but the trunk will not open.

You have to use the key inside the remote to unlock and then push the button, otherwise there is a posetive terminal under the hood that you can use to jump the vehicle under a red cover. Your battery is under the rear seat.
If all fails MB Roadside assistance will provide a jump , it used to be free, there was something recently that you had to spend a $100 or so once a year at the dealer.
