Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Battery flat and doors locked

Recommended Posts

 If you jack the front of the car up and remove the plastic under tray/belly you'll be able to access the +ve Battery terminal on the starter motor and then connect a Battery charger or 12 volt dc supply briefly on this terminal (the  -ve to the chassis or even wheel nut) which should then allow you to unlock the car using the car's key/fob. That's what the AA will do. Hybrid vehicles may possibly require a different technique.

Use the key in the fob ?? the lock may be stiff if it's not been used so spray some lube in it, you may need to use some grips to turn the key

@stantheman1 the hybrid doesn't have a conventional starter it doesn't even have an aux belt
