Question about Cars & Trucks

MMMMMMMMMMMMM. do you have a key fob, if so lock and unlock your car. then put the key in the ignition. does the car turn over? Not start, does the engine crank? if so the battery is o.k. look for another problem, Fuel, spark etc.

    Like nothing is happening, and when I try to jump it nothing comes on. Like nothing. No lights, no radio. So when I try to turn the key nothing happens.

    If you have another key for the car try it. It has a small transponder chip in the key that allows you to bypass the security. You may have a bad key.

    I don't and there is no power ergo no working key fob

So you have no other option but to jump start the car, by finding power cables in engine bay or pribe open the trunk with a crow bar, or have i towed to a auto shop so a professionel locksmith can open the trunk for you.

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......

The Ignition Key for a Lincoln LS
should open the trunk
I have a 2004

Raise it up in the front & put a battery
charger on the starter battery cable and
ground anywhere on chassis

I have a 2007 saturn ion, the battery is dead do to forgetting to shut the headlights off, now the key is stuck in the ignition and no way to open the trunk to get to the battery. Is there anyway to the...


Well, the first answer is right but doesn't solve the problem and the second answer is wrong as the battery is in the trunk.

Just had the exact same problem. Battery dead on 2005 ion due to head lights left on which causes the key to stick in ignition.

Could not get to the battery in trunk because key stuck and power trunk switch also dead (no battery power, catch 22).

Solution: I hooked up a battery charger to the positive terminal under the hood by the fuse box and the negative to the engine block and charged it for 20 minutes. You could also jump it using the same terminals.
