CMAX HYBRID completely dead
Hi guys, new member here. My 2013 Hybrid SEL is completely dead. No bells, lights, dingers, nothing.
My computerized Optima charger can't see the battery, so that matches. But even with the charger connected, nothing. The car is push button start, powered liftgate, nav, everything but the sunroof.
Called the dealer. He said it sounded like a 12V problem. So I ask the dealer, how do I get to the battery to replace it - since the liftgate is powered and all power is dead? BTW I just paid that dealer to preemptively install a new battery 7 months ago. He says, just a minute while I look that up. He says, "I don't know." Then he says, "But you better have the car towed in here so we can take a look at it".
I said, "But HOW are you going to get to the battery?"
Has anyone been thru this? Any ideas?
