Hi guys...

I had a door ajar warning message on my SRT8 and I took it to the dealer. They said it need some kind of switch that they will order and replace for me when they get it.

I wanted to be extra careful, so I went and disconnected the battery and closed the trunck. Only then I started thinking of how I will open it again to connect the battery !

Any ideas on how to open the trunck? I have a full size spare tire in the back, so it would be difficult to reach for the emergency release if I fold the back seat and try to reach it

If your sure the connectors not hitting any ground if it's the + one you removed you might try to hook a charger up to the jump port under the hood and hit the release button.

If the neg cable is unhooked you should be able to hook the charger up or even a battery with jumper cables under the hood and push the button.
Ild unhook the charger or jumper battery prior to hooking the real battery back up.

If you can't get it open, I'd say sell it and get a 392!! Then don't ever do it again..

Itzrick: thanks man ... I'll try hooking the charger and hopefully it will work. I was not able to reach the release handle because of the spare tire.

SpudRacer: the funny thing is that before I close the trunck I thought how I am going to open the doors and I remembered the key .... but I did not ask myself how I am going to open the trunck !:(

I'll let you know how it goes.....
