Today my battery died by keeping my radio on too long while cleaning my garage (lol) So no big deal , my wifes car is alongside me... BUT.. when our battery's are dead, the trunk push button does not operate. So my jumpers are in my trunk, and I had to open the trunk manually by this METHOD. Push down on the side towards you, and it will flip open, top removes, then use your car key.

There is a jump point under the hood....

Great big Red PLUS on top of it next to driver's shock tower. Connect red to that post and black to ground.

There's also a dedicated ground point marked (-). It's the unpainted bolt sticking up a little bit that's to the right of the (+) terminal. Very considerate of Acura, but indicates that a senior engineer somewhere in the project expects that the car will need to be jumped frequently.
