Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After storing my car for about 6 weeks the battery died.  The trunk opens with an electrical  solenoid. There is no key on the trunk.   Is there a place to use jumpers under the hood?

I appreciate the answer about the red cover. But there is no rec cover or visible terminal.

Thank you.

The answer that I just found ON THIS SITE! is to look behind the front seat Theres a round circle on the wall- put the ignition key in there and turn to the right and the trunk will open!
