Question Details

I left the key in the ignition of my 2011 ML 350 for about 2- 3 hours.   I assume the battery is dead, but I cannot open the back of the car and there are warning lights lit up on the dash even though the key has been removed.    I'd like to try to get to the battery, but cannot since I can't open the gate.   HELP!  :-)

ps.... i just figured out that battery is under the FLOORBOARD.   Still can't get to it though since I cannot move the seat forward - no power....

Use the postive jump starting terminal in the engine bay to power up the car and open the trunk.
