You just need 12 volts from a charger to somewhere, red lead on the starter motor, negative to earth accessed from underneath. Also the cigarette lighter, or the dome light. Wait 15 minutes to get some charge in the battery.

Check the trunk because the trunk probably has your battery in it.

    Only if it is a BMW. This is a Buick LaCrosse, it's under the back seat.

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.)

SOURCE: Can't open the hood (or unlock my car) as the battery is dead???

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!!!

SOURCE: battery is dead, cannot open the hood, auto power locks

I found a few solutions to your problem here:

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!

Replaced battery in remote for 2006 chevrlet corvette cnvertible and it still won't open the door or tart the engine. How can Iopen the doors and the hood so I can check and maybe jump the battery


Changing the battery in the remote won't affect the programming, and neither should a dead car battery. I am surprised there is no keyed entry on the driver's door.

1996 jag xjs , the battery is dead , I need to jump start it but the trunk won't open ,battery in the trunk , can it be jumped from under the hood ? and why won't the trunk open even with a key ?


The trunk latch is operated by a solenoid which it requires power to operate. since the batery is flat then it won't work. I'm not sure where the positive terminal is under the hood but you can connect the positive lead to the alternator wire terminal, and the negative lead can be connected any where on the engine.
Good luck......
