How to open the Prius battery rise trunk from the inside?
I'm on a Prius, but the auxiliary battery is dead and I can't open the trunk to take my luggage.
I want to replace the auxiliary battery by myself, but I can't open the trunk because it's in the rear.
I was also driving a Prius, and while I was backing up on my way home, the auxiliary battery suddenly ran out.
I was in trouble because I couldn't open the trunk to replace the battery I had purchased as a spare.
Prius can also open the trunk from inside the car.
This article will also show you how to open the trunk and jump the battery from another car.
If you watch the articles and videos, I think you can solve the problem of the Prius auxiliary battery.
The trunk of the 20 series 2nd generation, 30 series 3rd generation, and 50 series 4th generation Prius can be opened like this.
How to open the Prius trunk
I think it's better to do it once before it becomes a problem.
It actually has a lid.
When you remove the lid, there is a lever in the cavity.
Operate the lever to open the trunk.
Where is the Prius Auxiliary Battery?
The Prius auxiliary battery is in the trunk.
*The 50 series 4th generation has an engine room.
If you want to replace it yourself, search for "prius auxiliary battery replacement" and other people will upload it on their blog with photos.
I bought a new car and it became useless after 130,000 km.
It was S grade, so it was 16,000 yen including wages. *Varies by shop.
Since it uses a battery with a large G grade capacity, it costs about 20,000 yen to 40,000 yen at a dealer.
I think it would be cheaper to order it online and replace it yourself.
I replaced the second auxiliary battery myself.
What to do after replacing the auxiliary battery!
After replacing the battery, do not forget to set the power windows.
This work is not necessary when replacing the auxiliary battery while connecting another battery.
It's time to unplug it completely.
If you do not do this, the power window other than the driver's seat will not open.
How to connect the battery from another car
Prius auxiliary battery is installed in the basic trunk.
When connecting the battery from another car, open the hood and remove the fuse box lid to find the ++ terminal.
Red is plus, black is minus.
The order of connection is to connect the red cable to the positive terminal of the car being rescued and the red cable to the positive terminal of the rescue car.
Next, connect the black cable to the negative terminal of the rescue car, and finally connect the black cable to the negative terminal of the car being rescued.
The Prius I own is the 20 series (second generation), but the 30 and 50 series have the same mechanism.
Battery drain happens all of a sudden.
If you are recommended to replace the auxiliary battery at the dealer's inspection, etc., you can still use it, but if you are worried about it, please ask to replace the auxiliary battery on the spot, or order it online and replace it yourself.
Thank you for reading to the end.
