You need to get power to the car to remove the key. To jump start the car, look under the hood on the passenger side. Look for a red cover and lift, this is the positive jump terminal. Just above that on the firewall is a ground terminal. To replace the battery it's located in the floor behind the front passengers seat. It has a cover that has a small torx bit screw holding it in place.

Thank you. I was concerned that perhaps there was a computerized problem with changing the tire. Every time I do anything to this car I have to enter a code to set the computer again.

thank you. I was concerned about the computerized system/codes etc that always happen when I do anything to this car. the problem is probably not as bad as I thought. thanks again!
