Try to push unlock on the key at the same time push down on the trunk. Must be at the same time to work. Then lift trunk up.

behind the handle to pop the hood there is a cable, what you need to do is pull the handle and kind of lift the big plastic cover behind it, if you put pressure on the cable the hood should pop. On mine the cable slipped out of the lever/handle and I just need to pull the metal end, much easier once the cable slipps out
