Trunk

I have removed the battery from the trunk to be charged. The car is park outside. Since is going to rain, I decided to close the trunk. Can you open the trunk with the key?

Might work: Hook up a battery charger to the jump-start terminals under the hood.

Should be able to. If not, the hook to the jumper points should work.

Trunk

Unlock it with your Manuel key. Your trunk should have a slot to insert the key right above your plates next to the pop up handle.

OP-Why didn't you do this in the first place to charge your battery? Much simpler than hauling the battery out of the trunk.

Well, his car is obviously outside, given the whole rain thing. Could it be that an electrical hookup for a charger is not convenient there? Use key to open trunk.
