Where can I find the fuse box that regulates a 1999 volvo cigarette lighter. Mine is dead.

You don't say which model volvo you have, but you should check under the hood on a V70. If you have an S80, there are 3 boxes, one in the engine compartment, one in the trunk, and one in the passenger compartment near the driver's left leg.

Open trunk with dead battery of 2002 thunderbird

If the car has a cig lighter, you may be able to use a trickle charger plugged into the lighter socket.
Or you may be able to connect jumper cables to the starter from under the car.

2004 Lexus LS 350 keys in trunk battery dead

I would have the dealer cut a new key to get the driver's door open - or use a spare. You can buy a small charger that plugs into the cig lighter.

Not familiar with your car, but when the battery is in the trunk, they usually put a positive jumper cable connection under the hood. If it is in there, it will have a lid on it with a plus sign on it.
Failing that, you can use one of those lighter socket trickle chargers.
Either one will power your car so the trunk lock will work.

I have a 2001 volvo s80 and the Electronic Climate Control board with the blower knobs, heated seat buttons, and temp control has quit working but all of the fuses are good

I had the same problem with my 2001 s80 my battery went dead and it just stopped working me and a friend looked at every fuse even all of the relays and the relays under the fuse box in the engine compartment but to do that you have to remove the battery terminals so when we were finished checking everything we connected the terminal and started the car and everything was back on I'm assuming that the computer or something needed to be reset.

Battery is dead no key for trunk just door and engine. How do I get in the trunk

Sometimes you can let down the back set of a Volvo and get into the trunk. Some trunks are equipped with a trunk release to open it. See if the back seat will let down.

Cannot unlock trunk

Why don't you charge the battery under the hood so you can pop your trunk. You can't do anything with a dead battery.
