Yes. There will be a post that should be red and will be surrounded by an inch thick of plastic / rubber. That is your positive post. There may be a negative post near it, your you can use the frame of your car which is negative as well

    The post will be under your hood

    It should be on the driver's side probably covered by a plastic box

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.

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......

There should be a positive connection under the hood that is normally used for jump starting the car. Use jumper cables to power that connection and an engine ground from another car. That will power the car's electronics so you can open the trunk (boot) and replace the battery.

Where is the battery terminal located under the hood in a Mercedes c220? battery itself is in the trunk but inaccessible.


Well the ground wire will be more then likely grounded in the trunk somewhere by the battery. The positive batter cable should be connected to your starter. Hope this helps.

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.
