I have 2006 Toyota Prius. The battery is dead and I am not able to access the battery in the trunk as trunk can not be opened.


Under the hood there's a 12 volt battery access terminal you can connect jumper cables to. Otherwise, you'd have to fold down the rear seats and dig around in the back to get at the battery. Toyota was kind enough to think ahead for such an eventuality. By the way - it's in your owner's manual somewhere.

Try charging the battery a bit by snaking the positive jumper cable underneath to the starter post where the big cable connects, and the negative jumper cable to a good ground on the frame.

Sure! It is always possible for one vehicle to jump-start another vehicle. However, EXTREME CAUTION should be used and jump starting techniques should be followed carefully. Otherwise severe vehicle damage can occur. Here is the way to do it:

1. Connect the jumper cables to the good vehicle. (the one that is doing the jumping)
Make absolutely certain that he RED cable is connected to the POSITIVE battery post (the larger post on all top-terminal batteries, also marked with a "+") The BLACK cable then connects to the NEGATIVE battery post (smaller post marked with a "-").

2. Connect the other RED cable end to the POSITIVE post on the "dead" vehicle
3. Connect the other BLACK cable end to a metal part of the engine AWAY from the battery. (This is for safety to prevent sparking or arcing from causing the battery to explode.)
4. Run the engine on the good vehicle for 3 or 4 minutes to allow the dead battery to partially charge. (skiping this step can cause your charging system to overload and can cause damage to your vehicle including burning the alternator up.)
5. Attempt to start the dead vehicle. If is starts right up, then there is no problem. If it does not start immediately, I recommend getting some professional help with the situation because there is a problem that could possibly damage your vehicle if you continue to try to jump the dead vehicle.

I have been away and left my 2008 Prius in the garage. Upon returning 3 weeks later, the battery is dead. Is it able to be jump started?


Yes. See your owners manual but the terminal for jumping it is in the fuse box under the hood on your right as you are facing the engine.

Where to connect jumping cables on the battery


Dead car --- Red to + ... Black to -

Hot car --- Red to + ... Black to any metal car part away from the battery. Let the hot car charge the battery for a couple minutes before you try it. Try it. IMPORTANT: DISCONNECT THE HOT CAR BLACK JUMPER FIRST, then take the black off the dead car. Then disconnect the dead car red and then the other end on the hot car.

I have power but it won't start. makes a clicking sound when istart it


Hello All,

This is a common indicator of a dead battery. You may see some lights and the radio may play, but there is not enough power to turn the engine over. What you must do is one of two things:

1. Get a jump start from a freind.
-This is done by putting the vechicles' front bumpers right in front of each other (Close but not touching).
- Open both hoods.
- Pull out your handy jumper cables (or borrow a friends).
- Connect one end of the red jumper to the red post (positive) on the dead battery.
- The post is the bit of metal sticking out the side or top usually surrounded by either black or red.
- Once you have connected to the Positive post, connect the other side of the red cable to the good battery's positive post.
- Connect the black or negative cable to the negative/black post on the good battery.
- At this point, look at the dead car's frame around the engine. Look near the battery for a piece of metal on the frame. Clamp your jumper cable to the metal. Be aware the cable may spark. This is normal.
- Count to three then try to start the dead vehicle.
- Remove the jumper cable opposite how you put it on (ie. negative off dead vehicle first, then negative off good vehicle, etc.)

If this does not work after a few tries, you may have to remove your battery and bring it in. Have a qualified mechanic do this if you are not sure how to do this.

Hope this helps.
