Goverment mandated inside trunk release because children were shutting themselves in trunks while playing..........JB.
In the middle of all this frivolity, the voice of sanity is heard. But the release also can be used in case you fall in the trunk and the lid slams shut on you.

Cool Fast forward to October 2009...

...SRT8 is in the garage on the right side (can't open the passenger's door) and the battery is totally dead. My battery charger says the battery has a "failed cell" and it won't charge. Dodge Roadside Service responds (dealer requested that I call them) and they are unable to start the car...

Now I am hearing that there have been some battery and/or cable recalls? Dealer says that battery will be replaced under warranty if defective but car needs to be towed/flatbedded into dealership... not going that route in event car is in anyway damaged "pushing" it out of garage and/or onto rollback.

Dealer will not give/lend/whatever a battery so that I can install and drive into dealership so tomorrow I will purchase new battery and drive car to dealer.

More to follow:

Pete

I've said from Day 1 that the lack of regular key locks for the passenger door and trunk was a bad idea. From anecdotal evidence I've seen and my own experience, I think there indeed may be problems with the Challenger's battery. I had to have my original one replaced in July (at the time, the car had about 2,200 miles on it). The official diagnoses: A "bad cell." Fortunately, the car had been parked outside and I was able to jump-start it off my Mustang without too much trouble. And fortunately, it was replaced under warranty, as a new battery (which apparently is only available at dealerships) is $152. Plus labor, of course, if you get it installed there.
