Hi Wly, Jump the battery with one from another vehicle. If the battery is in the trunk there should be a jump connection under the hood. Never having seen one of these vehicles I don't know where, but I'm sure you can fin it. Connect the batteries positive to positive, negative to negative and then start up, but before disconnecting turn on the lights and the climate fan to full. If its the hard top also turn on the heated rear window. This is to alleviate the possibility of a surge damaging the control systems of the car....You may like to pass my home and let me have a drive? maybe not, I live in Africa! Regards John

Can anyone help me to locate a battery on a 2014 aston martin rapide

If it isnt in the engine compartment, some keep them under the back seat and many times in the trunk under a cover. Follow the electrical cable to find it.

How do I find and access a 2002 Aston Martin vanquish battery. Mine is completely dead and needs to be charged.

IIRC it is in the trunk/boot. However, there is a BATTERY + post in the engine bay so you don't need to pull the trunk/boot carpet up to charge the battery.

Location should be available from your Hand Book.

It is usually under a black plastic cover marked + in a circle. You attach the Positive+ clamp here and the Negative - clamp to a convenient metal engine component...such as a bracket.

WARNING: Modern vehicles are full of electronics. When charging a battery you must either remove the battery from the vehicle or use a low Amp charger set to 2 to 10 Amp for about 6 to 8 hours.

Failure to follow this proceedure will often result in electronic component failure of the 6 to 10 computers (ECU's.) placed around the car. Any of which can cost $1000.00 and up to replace.

I have just re ECU'd a Mercedes for $5,400.00 for a similar mishap !

Many European vehicles are equipped with a ballistic battery disconnect feature ....that disconnects the battery + cable in the event of a wreck. It is a fat bright RED component and must be handled with care.

You will also find some feature on the car will not work after charging the battery due to lost memory. ..such as window express down and radio pre-sets or activation code.

If you feel unable to reset these feature you need to go to the dealership. There are very few shop that are equiped to work on these machines.....and Aston is not forth coming with test information.

Where is battery located

I'm actually surprised at the lack of information about that vehicle. i would suggest looking in the trunk... as it is a rear engine from what i can find out. the trunk is in fact in the front.

Trunk will not open because of a power failure on a db9 2006

I assume by power failure you mean a dead battery?
If so, open bonnet and connect jump cables to +ve terminal at front left hand side of engine bay and the earth cable to the engine mounting taking care not mark the alloy. Allow the battery to charge from the donor vehicle for at least 10 mins before inserting your fob. Take car for a 20min drive to recharge battery. If you need to get to battery for any reason, it lives under the right rear passenger seat. Leather seat is atached with velcro, removing it reveals a cover secured by 10mm bolts, underneath is battery.

Have an Aston Martin vanquish 2007. Battery is dead and can't use remote to open the car. The key does nt work either (both sets).

this works for other cars
can you jack up and support the car and hook a jumper cable to the positive terminal on the starter? If so you can hook up the jumper cables to a good battery and a ground on the car. This should give you the power needed to open the doors.
