SOURCE: Battery dead; cannot open hood

If the cigarette lighter is an unswitched power point you could use it as a location to put a very small charge, just enough to get the hood release solenoid to activate. Years ago there was a device that was a male cigarette lighter power point at both ends and enough cable to go from car to car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT OPEN HOOD, DO NOT TURN KEY TO RUN OR ATTEMPT TO START. ANYTHING COULD RESULT. MINOR OR MAJOR. THERE IS A COMPUTER MEMORY SAVER THAT MATES A 9 VOLT TO A MALE CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG THIS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO RELEASE HOOD BUT MAYBE WITH A 12 VOLT FLASHLIGHT BATTERY (2 6 VOLT BATTERIES) WOULD WORK TO OPEN THE HOOD. (TURN EVERYTHING OFF EVEN DOME LIGHT.)

SOURCE: battery is dead, cannot open the hood, auto power locks

I found a few solutions to your problem here:

A lot of them have some merit, depending on whether you want to actually manually open the hood or use the inovative options posted there. Either way, i hope this helps and best of luck with your problem!

SOURCE: 1999 porsche 911 how to open hood with dead battery

The cheapest way to get around this and get enough voltage into the system to open the hood is to purchase a cigarette lighter extension (about 3 feet) and cut off the female plug on the end. Strip the 2 wires back a few inches and attach one to the positive and the other to the negative on a set of jumper cables. Attach the other end of the negative jumper to a battery. With the keyless entry in hand, touch the positive cable to the positive terminal on the battery and press the unlock button until you hear the car doors click. Once it clicks, you should be able to use the hood latch to gain access to the battery.

My 2004 Lexus GX 470 has a stuck hood and the battery is dead. I can hear a clicking noise when I pull the hood release lever but still hood is stuck shut. Does anyone have any ideas?


Have someone pull the hood release for you, and you bang the hood several times with your fist...if this works lubricate your hood lock before you close it.

2002 Lexus LS430.Original battery is totally dead.how do you unlock hood latch with no power. Everything is shutdown.i want to replace battery.


If you're able to get into the car, pulling the hood latch lever the hood should open the hood...it doesn't use any power to open, it's all cable. If it still doesn't open...you might have a stuck latch lock. Have someone try to lift the hood while pulling the lever see if that works. If it doesn't work, your hood latch is stuck, but it doesn't require power to open. Hope this helps you open it.

Keyless remote will not open door and I cannot open it manually


Try changing the battery in the remote first.. try a spare remote.. if not


oh dear.. ok amm you have 2 choices ... you can contact a dealer and ask them for a second remote and wait a bit for it,, or hijack your car..

To hijack

Firstly we need to open the hood ,, to to this

1.) look inside the grill for the cable u use to pop the hood, (you can also crawl under the car)
2.) trace the cable up to the lock mechanism, use a bird beak pliers or any pliers and grab the cable itself (not the shield) pull and the lock will open.. (if you cant reach or see the mech you will need to cut the cable and pull it.. (avoid this)..
In worse case,, send a crow bar up the grill or under the car,, aim it at the hood lock and hit it ,, it will pop or break.. (thats how theives do it)

Now to open the door..
1.) remove positive battery terminal (once your battery is charged and hasnt run dead) if its dead then thats why u couldn't open the door..
2.) tap the pole rapidly against the positive battery terminal (touch and lift and repeat) until the door locks open.. *preety cool way to open electronic locks" thats how thieves open the electronic ones..

If done correctly it should take you 20 seconds to get into your car..

My battery is dead and the hood release is inopperable


The hood is always mechanical not electrical even on a Lexus. Find the latch on the left lower floorboard near where your left foot rests when you drive. I believe on a Lexus they are flush and sort of difficult to find but I know you will locate. You can even google your make and model and what you are looking for and you should find it. Hope this helps.
