I believe there's a connection under the hood for that. It'll probably have a red plastic cover on it with a + symbol on it. Clamp the positive (+) jumper cable to it and the negative (-) cable to something metal that's not painted under the hood. You should be able to get the trunk open then to get to the battery .
