Hi, do you have a security light flashing ,constant or off on dash board?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No lights are flashing on the dash board
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.
These have 2 common problems when no start no crank . battery u said u checked and then u have ignition switch security signal .Checking the battery is tricky in this car too many systems need power so usually if the battery is over 5 yrs old it will start to act up sometimes it cranks sometimes not ,they need a the same cranking amp battery to go back in it when you replace it,usually its to expensive ad people go with a cheaper that will fit but might give you issues like this
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.
Do you a jump box like a charger , try cranking it with additional power from another battery and see if that makes a difference if not let me know there is other stuff we can check
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.
at the moment you are trying to crank it if u look at dashboard instruments what happens to them to stay lit or they go off at that moment ?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
You don't give me a warm and fuzzy when your photo is upside down. I took the battery out to go get it checked out and they said the battery was ok, but it is over 5 years old. Now I can't get back in the trunk. Any ideals?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.
sorry about the photo I updated it but it has updated in the system yet :). you cant get in trunk because no power correct ?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
That is correct
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.
If that is the case you should be able to remove the rear seat or if yours has an access hole where the rear arm rest is , u need like a long hook but u should be able to go thru there and pull on the manual emergency handle from inside the trunk it will have like a yellow or green handle with a wire attach to it usually and that should pop trunk open .
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 8 months ago.
another option under the hood where the fuse box is u will see a positive batter terminal maybe with a red cover on it, if u have jump box u can hook the positive there and the black cable (ground) hook it up to the frame of the vehicle and that should give u enough power to pop the trunk using the button on inside of the vehicle .
