If you have a cigarette lighter, sometimes you can use a 12volt accessory plug connected to another battery, to energize the system and get the trunk solenoid to operate. Do not attempt to start the car with this setup though...the wires cannot handle the amperage!

    Note: to return any battery to service after a discharge it must be charged with an external battery charger...Your alternator is designed to maintain the state of charge, not re-charge a battery. The battery will take a "surface charge" but not the deep charge necessary to be fully operational. Use in that condition will over-tax charging system and shorten battery life substantially!!!

Yes, you can jump start the car and drive it for awhile, or better yet remove the battery and take it to Auto Zone and they will charge and test the battery for free.

Battery dead no trunk access 2001 Lincoln LS how to jump start car


locate your starter motor.There you will find a thick single core cable (usually bolted onto solenoid).Get a fully charged battery and jumper leads.Connect negative lead to ground(any unpainted metal surface on chasis) or engine.Connect the positive clip to the stud described earlier.If you connect the other ends to the booster battery you should get enough power to open the trunk and then jump start the dead battery normally.If there seems to be no power in the circuits use the battery of a car with its engine running as a booster instead of a standalone battery.
