12V Battery dead on 2017 XSE
I had to have a boost to get the car going today. i got in the car and nothing worked, no lights, horn, no instrument panel. So i tried hooking a battery pack that you use to boost ICE cars and nothing happened. I left it connected for 30 minutes and nothing. My neighbor offered a boost and my car immediately worked after the boost. Lucky the boost point is under the hood, because the hatch cannot be opened if the battery is dead unless you crawl inside and release it manually after you remove a small panel.
I can't figure out why the battery pack didn't work. It was fully charged and I had used it to start a friend's 2009 Sienna just a short time ago.
Next stop is the dealer to find out the condition of the 12V battery.
