Jump your car with another vehicle let the other car run at about 3000 rpm for like 10 minutes then give it a shot with the jump car running at that rpm. When my battery was out it would not start with a booster only with another vehicle and your trunk lock will be the first thing not to work with a dead battery ( at least on my car ) don't drill anything you will get it open once the battery chages up abit. Just like Joyism5 said a donner vehicle is the way to go and these cars need to be driven or add a trickle charger. I've had my car since 2001 and i bought a new battery every 3 years because it seems in my case that his how long they last
