Dead Battery, really dead. Can not get into car as remote will not work. Any tricks to get into at least the trunk? CTS Coupe without key.

Do you

The best way for you to proceed is to lift the car up, here is a guide to help you do it safely.

and you will need a set of jumper cables to attach to engine ground and the positive starter lug.

Here is a guide but you will need a different connection like I have described above.

Once the car has power once the doors and then replace the battery.
