    Dead Battery

    When the battery is completely dead how do you open the trunk?

    Open the hood, attach a jumper to the battery pick up points in the engine compartment and pop the trunk.

    Instructions are on pg. 140 of the manual.

    The manual release is in the compartment behind the passenger's seat. There are two rings in the compartment, one opens the trunk and the other releases the cell phone holder.

    OOOOH... somebody who read the manual before getting the car. I know the feeling. By the way I used the maunal trunk release as described above when I had the mirror off for new glass and the trunk would not open (go figure) and it worked perfectly.

    I know, I was impressed by that too, if I'd ever known I'd totally forgotten, so you can see all the effort I'd have gone through!

    If you reconnect a new battery make sure that you have 12 volt power on the system.
    Otherwise you can get damage on your electric system by electric pulse from your new battery.
