Most of the newer cars/trucks have a remote positive post under the hood to be used for jumping the car. It normally is on the right hand side (passenger) on the firewall with a cover over it. Positive cable would go there and you can attach the ground to the engine.

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.

2010 HHR battery is dead and key is in ignition and won't come out and I can't open the trunk


If battery is completely dead on some newer cars, the key won't come out. Charge battery on a charger or get somebody to jump you. If you jump it, you may need to charge the dead car a bit first before removing the key or trying to start it.
Good luck!

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......

Battery for 2005 lincoln ls is in the trunk and we cant open the trunk. (battery is too dead to use the keyless remote pad on the driver's door) Is there anothe way to boost this car and get it running?...


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

Jumping a dead battery is an unsafe practice

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.
