Thanks everyone. Talked to the service manager at the dealership and he still says there's no way he can bypass the computer to think the cover is closed. Says he has to drill the lock out and use the hole to work the latch open. I was just about to drill it out myself, now I've decided instead I'm going to cut a hole into the trunk behind the license plate. I'd rather make a patch myself that won't be seen than pay for the lock to be drilled, replaced, and rekeyed. I know the parts are all still good in there, just not all screwed in the right place.
Would be curious to see photos on how this is done.
