If you look at the engine area you will see the postive jump point, let me see if i can locate a picture of this location.heres a diagram of the engine compartment, theres a fuse /relay box in the left rear, this is if you are standing in the front of the car looking in engine compartment, look for a terminal to connect the postive cable and ground the other to metal in the engine compartment, this is only to be used to acess the truck to get to battery, also look around the engine most times theres a postive hook up sometimes neear or on motor,good day,where's the positive terminal on - johnjohn2_115.gif

How can I jumpstart my car from my friends 2009Audi A8

You want to use the battery in the engine compartment, the one the alternator charges. I just connect the batteries directly pole to pole. When you rev up the engine the alternator will increase the output going into your battery.

I have an Audi A8 I lost the original key but I have the valet key, my battery is dead and I can't open my trunk to charge it. A mother thing the dealer said that their is a under the hood post I can't not...

The big wire to the starter goes to the post he mentioned, that's the starter relay. The big wire from the relay goes directly to the battery. Connect positive to the post, and negative to a good clean ground.

Can not get to battery to re charge no key can i trickle charge to some other point and use the trunk buttton

yes, the positive battery terminal goes directly to the alternator and also to the starter solenoid. Either of these points can charge the battery. The ground cable can go to almost any metal in the engine compartment.

Battery died trunk wont open

Hi, if you look under the bonnet (hood) there is a battery boost point located on the inner wing (not sure which side on lhd) it's under a small bright red plastic cover. This is the positive terminal, the negative connection is to a suitable metal part of the engine, usually the alternator bracket or similar. You will be able to power the cxar up via these points and then open the boot (trunk) to gain access to the battery.
Hope that helps Matt...
