A lot of them have some merit, depending on whether you want to actually manually open the hood or use the inovative options posted there. Either way, i hope this helps and best of luck with your problem!

2012 Toyota camry dead battery and trunk locked with broken trunk release latch. So No power no key slot and broken trunk release cable how do open the trunk to replace the dead battery? Thanks


From underneath the car, connect jump leads or a battery charger to the starter or alternator terminals. If your Camry is like my Lexus ES330, the battery is under the hood, not in the trunk!

I need to open the hood but the battery is dead the hood rerlease latch doesn't work bease there is o power.


The hood release latch is not run by the battery. there will be a hood release at bottom left of steering wheel. may be two levers. one will be for the hood and the other may be for the fuel door. Your hood is definitely is not open with power. e7b4ea09-a41c-4b55-b94c-260b24f79b4e.png

Battery dead, doors won't open


Two ways to do this. You can try to jump a good battery to your car so it would have voltage to unlock, connect the ground to any good frame contact or engine block, and the other hot end to the hot wire on the starter, this may involve crawling under the car. Another way is to gain access to the hood latch and try to manually get the latch to open, you might have to remove the grill. If you can't get the latch to unlock this way, you could just remove the bolts holding the latch on to the car, and lift hood latch and all. (watch out for your latch cable, as it would probably still be connected and hood won't raise much, but just enough to unlatch the latch.

Our battery is dead on our 2004 Toyota Sienna, now our key wont manually open the doors


You will have to open the hood to jump start or change battery. There are two ways to open the hood, both involve the hood latch/locking mechinism. First thing you must find a way to do, is to access the hood latch with your hands. You may have to get under the car, or maybe remove the grill to be able to get to it. Try to pull the hood release cable with your fingers or with some pliers. If this proves too hard to do, try to use a strong stick or rod and try to get the latch to release that way, moving the release the same way the cable pulls it. Another option is to access the screws that hold the latch on to the car, remove the bolts and lift hood, latch and all up. Then replace the latch/lock when you get your battery fixed. If you decide to lift hood, latch and all up by removing the bolts/screws, watch out and don't break your cable, just lift the hood enough to seperate the latch from the hood.

Nissan quest dead battery - keys locked in van - get hood open


you need too get some sort of hook on the end of a handle, something smaller but still strong enough to pull against with out bending or breaking. then standing at the front of the van using a flashlight look through the grill until you find the hood latch, then locate the black cable running into the side of the latch hook on to it and pull as hard as you can while simultaneously bouncing pressure on the font center area of the hood with your other hand until you hear/feel the hood latch release or "pop"!

2002 Lexus LS430.Original battery is totally dead.how do you unlock hood latch with no power. Everything is shutdown.i want to replace battery.


If you're able to get into the car, pulling the hood latch lever the hood should open the hood...it doesn't use any power to open, it's all cable. If it still doesn't open...you might have a stuck latch lock. Have someone try to lift the hood while pulling the lever see if that works. If it doesn't work, your hood latch is stuck, but it doesn't require power to open. Hope this helps you open it.
