You must charge the battery or you can use jumper cables from another battery to your battery to activate the electric trunk release, just be sure you hook up the jumper cables correctly ( cable to + on the battery and black to _ terminal of battery)and wear safety glasses when hooking up cables this should release the trunk. Also as a precaution always hook up + or red jumper cables wires first to prevent a arcing spark which is not terribly dangerous but this order in which to connect jumper cables is recommended.

I have a 2003 S-Type - I have a brand new battery I just bought. If I don't drive the car for 2 days I have to get a jump and my car drives fine until another weekend when I don't drive it and back on Monday I have to get a jump. Can someone help. I am not leaving on anything over night! What is making the battery die just because you don't drive it for a few days? I bought the new battery because I was having the same problem with the old battery. The battery is only 1 month old!!

I have a 2004 chevy Tahoe 4x4 and the problems never end. It drains batteries, and now I park it with the negative terminal disconnected so it starts every time. I don't drive it often because it's so unreliable and I have replaced the battery 3 times now. Thought I had a solution to keep it running by disconnecting the battery so I didn't have to boost it every time and now when I drive it, the battery gauge will fluctuate around the 14 mark and it will stall. It has started up after it stalls.

For the past few weeks, when I start my 06 Cobalt, It took a bit to turnover--but would. Yesterday, it wouldn't turn on, so my brother gave me a jump. I drove to Les Schuab to have them test the battery. They said it was at 63% and asked how often I drive it. I live where I work, so I haven't been driving it more than once or twice a week. I then drove the car around for about an hour to charge the battery. When I got home and was ready to leave again, it wouldn't start. I had it jumped a

I own a 2006 maserati and I don't drive it often, so the battery goes dead. My problem is that the positive terminal on the battery is virtually impossible to get to without removing the battery alltogether. The problem with this is that the battery is almost impossible to get back in place. I need a battery charger that will charge the dead battery through the cigarette lighter. Can anyone suggest a product that will work? Thank you.
