I have 09' Chrysler 300C which only came with an automatic keyless type key. It appears my battery is dead and cannot get inside car or trunk. How can I pop hood to charge battery in trunk from hood?

Asked by Jun 26, 2014 at 01:50 PM about the 2009 Chrysler 300 C HEMI

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The main battery is in the trunk but it can somewhat be charged from under the hood...not a good charge but enough to probably allow my key fob to unlock the doors and the trunk to get to the main battery to charge it better.  I presume the battery dying is the problem but I don't know for sure.  In any case, a regular key did not come with this car and I only have 2 key fobs that automatically start the car from afar as well as automatically unlock the doors and trunk by pressing some buttons on the key fob.  However, since my car is dead, I cannot get into it.  Therefore, I was thinking that if I could pop the hood with a butter knife or something from the outside, I could then charge up the battery enough from under the hood for the key fob to work to get into the trunk to charge the battery by hooking directly to the battery. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated as I am stuck in the middle of nowhere with my family and need some assistance with this. Even if the answer is no there is no way, then that is a great thing to know.

Something similar happened to me. Sorry to say I had to call AAA to open the door with a slimjim. Once you are in, you can pop the trunk or crawl through the back seat release and open with the emergency release pull. Just to be sure, my key fob has a cut key inside. The cut key allows you to get in the drivers door. Maybe your fob has the same?
