Asked by Apr 27, 2016 at 12:12 PM about the 2005 Chrysler 300 Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Call me an idiot please ! I unhook the the
battery to change the starter. Couldn't
finish job last night so with out thinking,
and with spare tire cover up (battery is in
trunk to) I slam the trunk shut !

*No power to unluck
* key less trunk entry
* battery cover flap in up right position so if
I go through trunk I can't even get my
hands to pop emergency trunk release.

Anything ? Anyone ? Beulor beulor ? Lol

Please help me, or at least describe to me
how to use trunk release cause I can't
seem to figure it out !

Thank you

That's an easy one... Just use door key to enter front of car, pop open the front hood, then use jumper cables or a battery charger to feed +12V electric to +jump connection near the front fuse panel connection, and attach black cable to engine ground. Once the vehicle has become energized, go ahead and pop open the trunk using the interior trunk switch or use your key fob. Easy as pie! But... If you have keyless entry only and no way to unlock vehicle using a key you could make a (+12) connection from underneath the vehicle at the starter solenoid main power terminal. Good luck!
