How To Unlock and Start Your Toyota Prius With a Dead Key Fob
Locked Out Of My Prius. Fob And Key Do Not Work! - Prius Club - Toyota Owners Club - Toyota Forum
I believe the 12V Battery on my Prius has gone flat as the keyfob will no longer unlock the doors. The small red light on the keyfob still lights up thought so I don't believe it to be a problem with the fob. However, the key for the door lock hidden inside the fob, won't unlock the doors either! Anybody had this problem before? Is there an external charging point for the 12V Battery that I can get to without opening the bonnet?
I'm borrowing my Mom's Prius and the battery seems to be dead. It's locked, so I don't know how to open the hood in order to charge the battery. Any ideas? I have the FOB, but that's not working either.
It only takes a minute to sign up. I have a Prius with remote keyless entry. I accidentally drained my battery by mistake. The locks do not respond, and trying to turn on the power puts the car into a strange low power error state.
