My battery is drained out on my car listed above Hybrid and my physical key to the trunk is not working. When I had called roadside assistance before they jumped my car from the front hood, but the manual doesn't say anything about this. It only mentions jumping the car from the battery in the trunk and almost everywhere online it says the same thing. Does anyone know where the jumper points in the hood are?

Now I'm in a parking spot and it's a little harder to call roadside assistance so any help is greatly appreciated.

There are no real jumper points under the hood, however there are the battery connection terminals that are on the engine room fuse box. The battery cable comes up to that box. If you look at the image it would be the B+ lug in the lower right of the box, should be a heavy black cable that bolts there. The positive jumper connection goes there and the negative to a clean ground point like a bracket on the engine or similar. That should allow it to start. Plus if you connected power there, it should let the trunk release work as well.
