Hi,
Over the years I've had many problems with my battery going dead. I just put a new one in, and this morning it's as dead as a door nail. I could start it, with the booster I have, but cannot accesss the trunk, where it is. Is there a way of getting into the trunk when the battery's dead?
Thanks,
..... john

Yes, if you lower the rear seats and reach in, there is a handle on the trunk lid that you pull to release the trunk (I have a 97,not sure if 99 is the same)

In fact, I have a string around the handle with the other end of the string slipped through the rear seat because my trunk release has not worked in a few years, and I just don't think its worth it to fix it.

Hi Barry,
I wasn't able to find the handle, but I was able to drag the charger out through the opening.
Thanks,
