Yes, you could mess it real bad if you connect a hot wire to ground. As I recall, there is a thick wire to battery-plus. And there is a smaller wire to the key starting switch or to a starting relay. Oh, there is also another larger one that fastens on with the battery-plus, to run the rest of the car. That's all I remember. And the sizes of the bolts onto which they go make it obvious which goes where. Ground is usually through the engine block, but battery negative might be nearby too. Just don't make any huge sparks, okay?

2000 Lincoln LS V8. Trunk lock cylinder is damaged and the battery is dead. Is there a way to provide power to the trunk solenoid or an alternate way to charge the battery?

You could connect jumper cables from another car or battery to the battery side of the starter solenoid. Connect the negative cable to the engine for a ground. This should make your trunk switch work.
