2008 QP battery problems and stuck key.

Hey Guys, my QP is giving me issues again unfortunately😑. My battery died so I put it on a new trickle charger overnight. The next day I turn the key and nothing no sound or anything and my key is stuck. As well as I can’t get to the battery. The battery is only 3months old. I’m at the end of my rope with this car. It’s a love hate relationship. Hoping the electrical system isn’t fried. Any responses are appreciated greatly. Thanks!

How about a defective battery before we burn the car? There is regular key port above the license plate.. Jason

And the key in the ignition can be removed by lifting the circular cap and pressing with a ball pen refill or similar.

Make sure your connections are good on the battery...The terminals are actually tapered slightly...The terminals need to be pushed down as far as they can go...Jason
