which post under the hood is positive, and which negative at the battery junction?
my battery is trunk mounted, but I know you're supposed to jump the car from the hub under the hood.
...and I took my battery out after I locked the trunk, and the e-lock system wont work without the battery. sooo....I can't get into the trunk to put the battery back in!

The E30 uses a body ground system and only the red positive + terminal is run in a wire to the trunk.

The negative - ground is connected to the body, in the engine bay and in the trunk.

Use the positive + to hook up.
