Here's a potential solution I found: You could connect a battery or charger to the positive terminal on the alternator, and the negative to the frame of the alternator. I think there is also a positive junction block in that area as well.


Here's the simple method to open the trunk plug into the power port / cigarette lighter with 9volt battery saver press the trunk button open.
