Look under the hood for a black plastic box that has fuses and relays in it. On the edge o the box will be a post sticking up that you can attach your positive cable to. It should have either a red cap on it or a symbol of a + sign with or with out a circle around it, probably in yellow. Then hook the negative (Black) one somewhere metal. It needs to be like the top on the strut or top od the engine where the loop is sticking up from it where it was originally installed, anyhting to complete a ground.

How to open the trunk on 2004 Jaguar XJR. The battery is dead.

Hi Manuel:
Is it possible to open the hood?
If so, you should be able to attach jumper cables (Alternator or Relay?) to get the switches powered up. I'm assuming the trunk latch is electrical.

Battery is dead, and I can't get in trunk. Manual

If you don't find the keyhole, find someone with jumper cables to power up the car so you can open the trunk. If the battery is in the trunk there should be a positive jumper cable connection point under the hood, Find bare metal on the engine to connect the negative jumper cable.

1) how do i get the trunk open if the battery in dead on a 2004 745Li? 2) can i just change it with the same one or is there something more involved?

I would have expected that you could open the trunk on an '04 with the key, but
There should be a lug under the hood where you attach a positive jumper cable. It will likely be in a plastic box with a "+" symbol. You attach the negative jumper cable to any solid unpainted metal under the hood.
Use another car or the new battery to power the car via the jumper cables so you can open the trunk.
