The simple easy way is to plug into the cigarette lighter / power portwith a cord for charging, you might have to buy the necessary USB to 9v battery connector or create your own. Another method is to use a battery jump-pack and use its power port to connect directly to your LS's power port, all you need is the correct cable.

Use the key to open the trunk.

@bob I would have if that actually worked...have you owned one of these cars before?

Holly Will

@auto_centric thanks for the info! But I figured another simple way to get a charge long enough to pop the trunk.

Holly, Perhaps I wrongfully assumed that there was a trunk key similar to my Mercury Marauder. Is there a key or did it just not work?

Holly Will

@bob I'm uncertain if there is an actual trunk key for this car, but I did end up getting in the trunk! Now, 5 months later, I've ended up closing the trunk with the battery unhooked like an idiot...I'm currently searching for a way in that does not require electricity :( there is no pull lever inside of the car to get in from behind the seat either...stupid, stupid car.
