    If I were to jack the car up where is the starter located and how easy is it to get at? I need to attach a jumper cable to the hot post. Thanks.

    Note: I am not able to open the hood so my only choice is to jack it up.

    Yea, unless you are a contortionist, getting at it from the bottomis going to be tough. It can propably be done, but you'll be working blind.

    The problem with the hood release just appeared in the last week; the same time the battery died. I can't think of another way to jump/charge the battery other than hooking onto the starter or solenoid. The only other thing I can think of is to cut into the wire sheath on the hot wire coming from the battery to the solenoid and then clamp the jumper cable directly to that. It's an interesting and frustrating situation and right now it looks like it's past the point where I can do anything. It may be time for professional help.

    Instead of going thru all that trouble, you should just try to open the hood instead...Just get under the car and try to get the shizzz' open... ;)
