Beginning with 2014 Model S there is an easy Emergency Responders way to open FRUNK. I need to know how to access FRUNK on my 2012. I need to pump up the Air Suspension by replacing 12v battery. Car cannot be moved easily since it is so close to the ground. Yes I tried to Search but time is short . . . Thanks.

Is the car unlocked? A 2012 should have a frunk release handle underneath the glove box. It releases the first latch. Then you lift on the frunk and put your hand in to push a lever to release the second latch.

Yes, the car was purposely left unlocked when abandoned. And yes, the microchip charger is likely not even attempting to charge that 1.6v batt. Will jumper with the Dodge diesel (which has 2 batts in parallel) and see what the initial voltage is. Ideally it will be able to pop the doors. Been occupied with towing the dead Roadster to triage (job #1). In a few weeks I'll deal with the sedan. Thanks for the help!!
