I need some help please?

I have a 2002 SL500 and today it started emitting a metalic like catering sound while sitting in my driveway. It seams the battery has died. I called out AAA and he did know how to jump it or get the truck open to access the battery. I went on line and found some utube videos that show a panel under the passenger side foot carpet that you can access to jump start or charge the battery to open the trunk. I did access the panel but it didn't look the same as the utube video which was for S series, so does anyone know how to hook up the battery charger to either jump start the car or open the trunk?

Thank you for your help.

I'm sorry, but I know nothing about that model car. However, I'm sure someone here does. Hooking a charger up to a battery is not a difficult task, but it can go badly wrong if you are not sure what you are doing. You are doing the right thing seeking help.

In the meantime, is there any way you can prove you are really Brian and not someone trying to steal his car?

Thank you for your help.
If it was emitting a 'catering sound', are you sure you're not confusing an SL500 with a hot-dog van or ice cream truck? It's an easy mistake...

Isn't there a key lock on the trunk that you can open with the key in your remote , supposing the remote is the same as the Slk 's ?

Push the key inwards after turning it !
