The big wire to the starter goes to the post he mentioned, that's the starter relay. The big wire from the relay goes directly to the battery. Connect positive to the post, and negative to a good clean ground.

SOURCE: Trunk will not open

did you get this problem solved?? i had the same issue, but solved it.

if you did not solve the problem, this is how...

insert the key into the trunk key hole
turn the key to the left and push the key
at the same time, lift the trunk while the key is pushed in and to the left

hope this helps
normally, you just turn the key to the right on most cars - i guess the folks who built audi a8's are left handed.

This is bad day indeed! I know right now it looks bleak, but look at the knowledge you have learned!

I suggest calling a locksmith to come out, and open the car. Then call your road service, and tell them you need a battery. IF, they offer to charge it, the battery cables Must be removed, or it can damage the computer!

SOURCE: 2001 AUdi S4 Trunk will

The same "latch" secures the trunk closed.
The key, electric relay and button operate the same latch.
IF the trunk fails to open, the "latch" is not completely releasing from the catch that secures it.
The next time that you open it, inspect the adjustment of the latch assembly. It has 2 bolts that secure it. You can loosen them and adjust the assembly to a slight more open position - so that each time you operate the latch, it releases from the catch.

Don't move the assembly too far - or the trunk will not be able to lock closed at all.

I'm not sure what an "A8" is.
Is it an Audi ?
Call the dealer for the company that made the car and ask them. You may need to make several calls to get an answer.
God bless your efforts.

How can I jumpstart my car from my friends 2009Audi A8

You want to use the battery in the engine compartment, the one the alternator charges. I just connect the batteries directly pole to pole. When you rev up the engine the alternator will increase the output going into your battery.

Just bought this car I can't open the trunk with ignition key

It either has had the trunk replaced and the old cylinder wasn't installed, or the key you're using is the valet key. See if you can lock/unlock the glovebox. If you can't you're using the valet key. If you can, your trunk lock cylinder is not original.

Trunk will not open

the frame on the drivers side door as you look down, there is a button the pops the trunk. However, if you cannot open it with the remote, it is not likely that this will work as it uses the same mechanism to open the latch. I would definitely unlock the doors with the key, go to the trunk and make sure the the lock is in the "unlocked state", ad press the button in, it should just open
