A friend has been borrowing her friend’s 2008 B200 for a few weeks. She went to drive it today and the battery seems to be dead:
- the interior lights don’t come on when you open the door
- the dash display DOES show the odometer and a few other things for a minute or so, then kills it when, presumably, the timer runs out.
- she can’t start the car. In fact, some solenoid isn’t even engaging to let her turn the key.
- there’s no power to even open the back hatch.
We couldn’t find the battery while we were looking. Some research afterwards shows me that it’s under the front passenger seat. From what I can tell, there’s no remote positive terminal in the engine bay or under the car. So how are you supposed to boost this thing???
