Get yourself a plug in for the 12V outlet. Attack two wires to it. The hook those wires to a battery source. Positive ti the center of the plug and negative to the outer wire. Then pres the button to raise the hatch. If you are going to charge the dead battery, you will need to have a jump box on it for a bit to keep the charger going.
