Q: I can't get into the trunk to replace the battery

asked by on

Took battery out to replace, accidentally closed the trunk
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi - You should have a positive jumper point inside the engine compartment. It is usually located on the passenger side toward the front. You can hook up a jump box or jumper cables here and get power to open your trunk. If you would like some professional help with this issue, consider having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, assist you in getting your trunk open or replacing your battery. Thank you!
