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.

How to pop hood from outside of 2004 chevy trailblazer


You cannot release the bonnet from the outside.

In any case the key should open the driver's door manually. You will need to turn it either once or twice in succession. If it will not open then pull on the handle and turn the key in the lock at the same time.

Get into car when batteryy is dead


If battery is totally dead and you cant get in with the key. I would call out a lock out service and un lock the door. Then pop the hood and replace battery. Cause no alarm system would work with a battery that dead I would imagine.

Any way to get in an escalade with a dead batery


You will have to get into the hood manually to jump the battery and the use the key less entry. Use a long flathead screwdriver and pop the hood latch. To do this simply push the latch horizontally with the screwdriver and the hood will pop open. Jump the battery and you will be able to get into your vehicle. I would then address the reason your battery dies if not replace it.

Cant get in car to pop hood, dead battery key hole jammed!!


at this point you have 2 options, 1, go to a parts store and get a jimmy kit that helps you break into the car by unlocking the door, whicch sometimes can be tricky or if you have aaa they will unlock it for you for free, 2, you would have to reach from underneath and feel around for the cable, folow it to the latch assembaly and carefully release the latch assembaly, this way wil be very difficult and a tight area.
Good Luck.
