If you can open the hood, the battery can be charged from the hot terminal on the alternator or starter. The negative charger cable can just be attached to any bolt on the engine or any ground wire.

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!

Have an auto electrician use a jumper to open the trunk. Then replace the failed battery. IF you get the old battery load tested and it proves faulty the auto electrician will be able to install a new battery for you at the same time.

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.

Left keys in ignition overnight, turned to have interior lights on. battery is dead, cant get key out or pop trunk to get to the battery to charge it.


If you know anyone that has a portable booster, you should be able to plug the cord from the 12v outlet on the booster into the 12v (cigarette lighter or accessory charger) in the car, and get enough power to pop the trunk.

Hey John,

This is very common, because your battery is dead your remote isnt going to work. So what you have to do is look by the license plate light bulbs, their is a key hole wear you can insert you key and open the trunk to charge/ or jump start your battery
