Cannot get into trunk with unhooked battery

130

Asked by Oct 03, 2016 at 09:28 AM about the 2004 Lincoln LS V8 Ultimate

Question type: General

I unhooked my battery a couple of days ago to
charge it with a battery charger and then closed
the trunk like an idiot (due to it starting to rain and
my car is outdoors). There is ZERO way for me to
get into the trunk considering I have no trunk key.
There is no pull lever for the seats inside of the car.
They're in the trunk also. How can I get into the
trunk without having to use electricity??

You can't, buy one those portable power boxes and use the power port inside the car to open the trunk then install the normal battery. Note: this will arm the security system so make sure you know how to turn it off before setting this up, also some Lincolns if the BCM is without power long enough will loose the factory presets and then will have to be reflashed at the dealer, again some but not all in this year.

So, I can use that even though I have no battery hooked up?

Yes, it won't be able to start the engine but it will give you basic electrical power.
