Customer Question

Hi. I've got a 2005 Prius. Came back from a week's vacation and it's dead. No electronics, rear hatch won't open, car won't start, etc. I've been reading posts and I'm guessing the aux battery in back is the dead item. Is that user-serviceable?

Hello and welcome!!

Yes this battery is serviceable.

The battery is located in the rear of the vehicle. Remove the cover for the compartment on the right hand side.

Do you have a battery charger?

Remove the negative battery cable and fully charge the battery.
