I disconnected my dead battery in order to take it to battery shop for replacement while waiting for ride to take me to dealer. I had closed my trunk in the meantime, but now can not get in the trunk - my remote and trunk release in vehicle do not work with battery disconnected. Obviously, there should be a manual way to get into the trunk to replace the dead battery

Put my roof down today but now wont go back up. Back windows wont go up and every time I try to press the button it just chimes. I have not found any leaks and this is the first time it has happened to me. Must admit I have not used the car for a while so it has been just sitting there. I need some advice because as it is so late and I really don't wont to leave the roof of all night. HELP please.
Replaced front speed sensors -lights still on-then replaced rear wheels with ones off front--still on. Pattern is inconsistent--sometimes at starting on-then goes off-but most of time on. Sometimes when not on, will come on and I feel a very slight slipping sensation.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
