If the electric lock on the trunk is not working, you can use your key to open it. The lock location is kind of disgused by the XJ6 emblem. Put your key in and turn it and it will open up. Take out the panel and expose the battery for charging from there.

Call someone in service dept at a mbz dealership. They can input your cars vin number and tell you if that car has battery connections under the hood. My 2000 s430 doesnt have any under the hood.

Look under your hood, you will find contact points for jump starting. If you have a battery charger, you can connect it to those jumper points, and that will give you enough juice to operate the trunk lock.

Same as above... cant pop hood with a dead battery


If you open the fuse box in driver's compartment by your left leg, there is a red plug that you can pull that will expose a positive lead.

Put a charger on the lead and ground the other side of the charger to the frame and it will provide power to use the hood latch.

I have seen other people write about using the car charger that fits into the cigarette lighter but I have no personal knowledge. I hope that is helpful.

There is also an emergency release under one of the wheel wells but I never attempted to look for it.
