What you need to do is open car with key and power car up though fuse box to open tailgate and then jump start in recommended way. To do this you will need a piece of cable fitted with an inline fuse. First with keys out of ignition switch connect the black jump lead (negative) to a suitable point on the body (door hinge, trim screw etc.) then connect your fuse wire to red jump lead(positive) be careful not to touch the car and then connect to the car though the end of a fuse (central locking etc.) there are two small openings in the end of each fuse, you can use either, then press button to open tailgate, if no luck try a different fuse, don't try to start car this way only open tailgate, then jump start car in recommended method.
