2017 Forrester XT CVT
My 2017 Forrester has been sitting too long and the car battery has died. How do I open the doors?!
Yes, we used to use them to park project cars in a buddy's shop out of the way. Cars that weren't gonna be moved.A good floor jack can B used 2 drag your car over enough 2 gain access
Glad that you've got the door open, yes order the trickle charger and agree Subaru mis-judged the battery and accessories drain in the newer Foresters!Thanks for your help & encouragement, Bill (& Supasta). I got the passenger door lock open with a curtain rod. I tried hooking the hood latch but always have to feel around to find it. The interior manual lock for the passenger door was easy to see....
I don't think Subaru though out battery drain situations very well. I know my parking position is not their issue but still, perhaps they should also put a manual key access on the hatch or at least the passenger door.
If all goes well and I'm up to it, I'll take it for a spin when I get it started. Oh yeah, I'll also order a solar trickle charger from Amazon today!
