Here is a video i made for you to access the main battery in the trunk. If your SL is older than 2003 then the process will be the same except you push the lock cylinder in to pop the trunk. Let me know if this helps or if you need more assistance. Copy and paste the link below.https://youtu.be/cG7q5BlEBfMLet me know if this helps. Lou
