Question about Cars & Trucks
SOURCE: Battery dead; cannot open hood
If the cigarette lighter is an unswitched power point you could use it as a location to put a very small charge, just enough to get the hood release solenoid to activate. Years ago there was a device that was a male cigarette lighter power point at both ends and enough cable to go from car to car. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE EXCEPT OPEN HOOD, DO NOT TURN KEY TO RUN OR ATTEMPT TO START. ANYTHING COULD RESULT. MINOR OR MAJOR. THERE IS A COMPUTER MEMORY SAVER THAT MATES A 9 VOLT TO A MALE CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG THIS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO RELEASE HOOD BUT MAYBE WITH A 12 VOLT FLASHLIGHT BATTERY (2 6 VOLT BATTERIES) WOULD WORK TO OPEN THE HOOD. (TURN EVERYTHING OFF EVEN DOME LIGHT.)

on your remote there is a plastic key inside it. find the silver button on the side of the remote. press and hold it as you pull on the key ring. the key will pop out. There is a tiny slot under the driver side door handle on the right as you're looking at it. stick the key into it and pop the plastic cover off the handle. voila!! you've found the key hole in the door. now just stick in the key and turn. magic!!!
