Question about Cars & Trucks
Keys in trunk, battery dead. How can I energize car enough to pop trunk? BATTERY IS LOCATED IN TRUNK!
I would have the dealer cut a new key to get the driver's door open - or use a spare. You can buy a small charger that plugs into the cig lighter.

The 1994 xj6 sedan. The trunk should be opened by the key unless you have green keys only (valet keys).
If this is the case then open the hood and on the firewall there is a black plastic square box with a + sign on it, lift up the plastic cover, connect your jumper/charger on a low boost and this will give you enough power to push your remote trunk release switch.

you can charge the battery from the engine compartment. check your owners manual that is the correct place to jump and to charge the battery.

1. I presume your button on the dash (which opens the trunk) is not working. You could take that button out of the dash panel and manually activate the circuit by using the wires themselves.
2. If the "valet" key doesn't fit the trunk lock, see if the keys are visible through the center back seat access 'hole', make a wire hook attached to a broom handle, etc. and try to catch the ring the key is on. If the view is blocked by other things you can't move, figure out at way to move things in the trunk so you can get something to reach the key(s). Do you have other metal keys on the same keyring? If so, use a magnet to grab the whole set.
3. Have you considered taking out the rear seat? Do the bottom seat cushion first, then the back.
4. By now you have hopefully already gotten your keys back out of the trunk, but if not I hope one of these suggestions works. MW

Posotive can be found in hood driver side next to fuse box. It is a small rectangle box. You can hook negative to any solid ground on the car.
