A battery charger, a length of wire and a Cigar Lighter plug.

Why not just open the hood? Much easier.

Used cigarette lighter to inflate tire, left inflater on for a long time now cigarette lighter doesn't work and car doesn't always start


It sounds like you might have drained your battery! When the car is running does the Cigarette lighter produce power? It should be working while the car is running. That would also explain why the car starts sporadically. Try leaving the car on for 40 minutes. That might charge the battery enough.

The battery on my 1194 S420 needs to be charged. I can't open the truck to get to the battery. What do I do? HELP!


You can buy a trickle charger that will charge the battery through the cigarette lighter socket, but it won't charge the battery quickly. I'm guessing that the "1194" should read 1994. Some newer cars won't work with a cigarette lighter charger.
If you have a manual transmission you can actually push start the car by getting it rolling, putting the ignition in "run", and then popping the clutch. Not something that you can do if you haven't seen it done before, though.
Best wishes and I'll keep my fingers crossed that it works out.

2004 envoy can i use the cigarette lighter socket to keep the envoys battery charged


As long as you use a slow charg device, yes. Rapid charge devices will blow the fuse or at worst can cause a fire.

How can I open the luggage compartment of a Porsche 911 when the battery is dead?


The best way to do this is to put battery voltage back into the system through the cigarette lighter. You can buy a battery charger at an auto parts store or walmart that is designed to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. It will have a plug on it that insert right into the cigarette lighter. Let it charge a little, and try the button again. It will pop right open.

Battery flat cannot release bonnet to jump start


You have to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. Go to an auto parts store or walmart and there you can buy a car charger that will plug into the cigarette lighter. Once the battery charges a little, you can pop the bonnet. Once you have access to the battery, you can use a heavy duty battery charger or replace the battery.

Trunk on my 1998 Jaguar XJ8Lwant open, battery post disconnected


The best way is through the cigarette lighter port (You will need to buy a jumper cable with cigarette lighter plugs on both ends)And just plug it into another cars lighter port or a jumper pack port.This will put the 12 volts through the car needed to open the truck.

Cigarette Lighter Coming on but power not strong enough to charge anything


the two problems that you posted could be connected somehow by the alternator not charging because of the belt issue. so if you have a low battery, the cigarette lighter would have a low voltage also.

then on the ipod issue, the memory of the radio could have been lost due to removal of battery cables or the battery really went down on its voltage. just re-configure your radio to accept the ipod music.

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.)
