SOURCE: 1995 xj6 battery dead can't open trunk

Fairly easy way is to remove kick panel on passenger side rear seat.(one screw) There is a battery positive feed to the fuse panel there. Heavy guage red wire with a rubber cap covering the post. There is also a common body ground post in there.(double black wires) Just hook jumper cables up and go.

SOURCE: I can nit open my trunk on my 1996 jAGUAR XJ6.

ok, if the key won't open this then the lock is jammed and if you don't want to damage anything, I know I wouldn't, I would take it to a mechanic. The jammed may have been what killed your battery if the valet trunk open was not working it may have been shorted out. There is a way to jump vehicles with the battery in the trunk like that but I am not familiar with it and if the buttin doesn't work to release the trunk it would do you no good anyway. most likely you are looking at replacing teh truck locking mechanism.

How can I jump the starter on my 91 camaro?

hot wire starter you can short out ignition switch and wiring. to jump starter ignition switch start have to run 10 gauge jumper wire from the starter solenoid positive battery terminal to starter switch or S terminal on starter solenoid this procedure take two people but better remove starter replace starter solenoid. trying jumping off starter on camaro would be dangerous you have jack up car to get to starter and wiring person laying under car hot wiring starter while other person hold ignition start position put person under car in deadly position just remove starter have auto parts check it out first replace starter or solenoid if either bad. easier hot wire starter if starter under hood like my 1977 vega monza had starter at top could take long screw driver jump starter off.on the four cylinders engines back in the 70s. camaro starter under car dangerous trying to hot wire not a good idea.

Kia radio no display after jump cable start - fuse not blown

Hi i had sa me issue jump started my kia rio radio display was blank. To fix open your fusebox inside the car Pull out both audio fuses your fuse puller should be in the fuse box under the hood. Yes you have two fuse boxes. One inside you car and one under the hood with your engine. wait few minutes say five... Put the fuse back in. Btw its not neccesary to pull the fuse all the way out. Your radio should show cde error... Now you will need to put in your four digit pin...gluck thanks to the guy on the internet who said pull out the memory fuse... Not that i understood till now.

Jump start a bmw x5 from under the front hood, where is the positive cable on the undercarriage ?

On some BMW models the hot connection is on the firewall under the hood on the passenger side. Sorry I don't know about the 2002 model.

1996 jag xjs , the battery is dead , I need to jump start it but the trunk won't open ,battery in the trunk , can it be jumped from under the hood ? and why won't the trunk open even with a key ?

The trunk latch is operated by a solenoid which it requires power to operate. since the batery is flat then it won't work. I'm not sure where the positive terminal is under the hood but you can connect the positive lead to the alternator wire terminal, and the negative lead can be connected any where on the engine.
Good luck......

I have a 97 ford taurus new battery, wire connections ground n hot, new starter still turns slow with help of jump everything checks good i think maybe short in fuse box under hood ? while pressing on...

if its had a new battery fitted but it still needs a jump it still could be the start motor or the wrong battery fitted 72ah min i think is the minuem for your vehicle, it could also be a faulty starter, or it could at worst be a stiff engine.

Jumped started the HHR and power steering went out

Did you attach the jumper cables to the "box" under the hood that looks like a battery? Both posts are hot. You probably blew the fuse. This car almost mandates you usee the proper procedure to connect jumper cables, i.e. negative cable to the motor block.

Need to open trunk, battery dead and no mechanical key. 2001 Mercedes S-class.

I am hoping you don't have the doors locked.
Open the hood and there will be a HOT point (jump station) under the hood. It will usually be housed in red plastic. Jump start it there and all should be a go from there.
Good luck!
