There is a key hole behind drivers seat. It's same color of the molding. Might check your owners manual if you can't find it.

Key hole should be on the back wall behind the drivers seat. Hope this helps

Glad to hear you are tuning ok

Battery is dead,tried key behind seat still won't open ? Is there a place under hood to jump it off ?


Key should work unless original was lost or lock replaced!!! Battery is in trunk? You could try jumping the starter and once started you can open trunk and charge battery. Just a thought
