    look, the battery is in the trunk. the trunk will not open. the lighter turns off with the key,it will not charge anything.there is no battery posts in the engine compartment. the starter is a fully sealed unit. the solution is to call a locksmith, or to phone mer. benz for a secret solution. thanks for all the ideas

    There is no such thing as a sealed starter. every starter known to man has an electrical connection on the outside otherwise it could not operate. You did not locate the starter, and if you did, you did not look carefully enough at it or you would have seen this.

    I believe I tried this one before, but another way into the electrical system aside from the lighter is to run a jumper to the starter main terminal (without grounding it anywhere else) use second jumper to ground)
    (Unless there is a set of "jumper terminals" in the engine compartment I don't know about) Many lighters are hot all the time, if not, it's not as convenient, but the second way will also work.

I would have the dealer cut a new key to get the driver's door open - or use a spare. You can buy a small charger that plugs into the cig lighter.

My jaguar is dead I can't open my trunk to charge


I am not familiar with the Jag, however. If there is no manual trunk release or no key operated release mechanism, all may not be lost. Auto parts stores and some department stores sell a temporary power supply that operates on a small battery and plugs into your cigarett lighter. These are used to retain computer and radio settings when it is neccessary to disconnect the vehicles primary battery. This might offer enough voltage to open the trunk and allow access to the primary battery. Good Luck Vern

Mercedes-Benz 230clk coupe 1998 with dead battery


I had same problem with my 2002 CLK430. Dead battery with car locked. You can't open doors with the mechanical key (inside remote key), as windows need power to slide down slightly to allow clearance, so you can't access the hood release. The answer is to insert the mechanical key in the key hole for the trunk (boot). It will only go in one way, with the slightly larger grip part down. I found it easiest to turn with a pair of flat nosed pliers. Turn counterclockwise to the left to to the 11 o'clock position. Then push the release in and the trunk will open. Battery is located in the right rear quarter under the flooring panel that also covers spare tire. Hook up charger or jumper cables and power will come back on, as will alarm. To disable, just push the unlock button on the remote key. You should be good to go from here!

98 bmw 740i wont start


I would first check the condition of the battery. If the battery is okay, that is it puts out enough current to operate the starter. I would then check for a short. The battery would be dead in a couple of hours only if there is a short or another load on the battery.
