Key in the FOB to open the hatch... there is a pull lever in hatch area to open driver side door.Had a neighbor looking at my car last night. When he got to the doors and figured out how to open them he said, "how do you get in the car if it has a dead battery"
I have no idea
not true, I disconnect my battery every time I put it in storage ( every couple of months) I have had no issues.Recently got a 2015 stingray coupe (multiprocessor on wheels) and was thinking about changing the stock battery to an Optima Yellow Top (lower CCA than Red Top, but deeper cycle). Someone told me to be very careful, as disconnecting the battery triggers the anti-theft system, locks up the car and it has to be towed into the dealer. Does anyone know if that is true and, if so, what is a workaround?
Your asking for trouble as every time the battery is yanked at the least when voltage is returned you force every controller in the car to reboot, sync up in networks and for the PCM force it to spend computer clock time doing all the onboard smog tests that get erased and to a failed state when battery is removed from systemnot true, I disconnect my battery every time I put it in storage ( every couple of months) I have had no issues.
Yep, just don't have the owner's manual in the glove box when you're on the road and the battery decides to go "belly-up"*.Good show Mobius! You'd be surprised what kind of info is in the owner's manual, pretty much everything you need to know, all you gotta do is read it.
Could not agree more. My battery died in a parking garage, after I had tried to lock the car with my phone. I think it kept trying, and just killed the battery. I keep a set of jumper cables in the same compartment now!Yep, just don't have the owner's manual in the glove box when you're on the road and the battery decides to go "belly-up"*.

Bummer. Mine went dead once but I know what did it, my stupidity.Currently my C7 is at the dealership for a yet undiagnosed electrical problem that drains the battery. My salesman told me he never travels without a an "Antigravity Battery" portable charger. You charge it once and it is supposed to jump a car battery for several months. It also works on cell phones and other electronic gear. I bought mine on Amazon for about $100. It fits perfectly in the rear storage compartment. Unfortunately it did not arrive in time to try it on my latest dead battery.
