OK, I spent 15 wasted min trying to find something related to charging on the forum and came up with NOTHING.

So where do you hook up your charger under the hood?

it's to help keep the mice away...apparently mice do not like the scent from the dryer sheets.

Followup...

I did exactly as Camguynj recommends and can say I'm very impressed with this unit. The 8 stages it goes through gives you a good understanding of the state of your battery. This is truly a "set-it-and-forget-it" appliance. Super easy to use. Includes desulphation, recondition, float and pulse maintenance. I believe this device could have saved or at least diagnosed CaliDave's battery.

This is another one of those 'homerun' C5 member recommendations. Thanks Camguynj.

Lots of good info and videos on their website:

So....my battery is dead and the ignition key is stuck in the ignition. Can you tell me where the battery is? If it is in the trunk, htf do I open the trunk. Help. ��

PS. After she sat all winter, I had her out two weeks ago, and now she won’t turn over.

Battery is in the trunk. If you can get into the car, use the jumper cable terminals under the hood to connect a charger or jumper cables.

I hope you have 2 keys. There is a manual unlock port behind the passengers backrest on the drivers side. Just grab a hold of the side of the seat by the window and push... you'll see it there. If you only have 1 key, then you might have to go to a dealer with your VIN and have a second one made.

Another option is to get under the car and attach a charger or other 12v source to the starter terminal and ground.
