XC70 (05) battery flat, how to open booth?

Post by Jagger » Mon Apr 29, 2019 2:45 am

I came back from holiday and the car is dead. The drivers door I could only open by using the key. No ignition, no lights at all.
How do I open the booth to get to my battery?

Hope, someone can help me.

Apply power by means of a booster pack or jumper cables at the jumper terminal in the engine bay at the flap under the + sign behind the fuse box. It is noted by the red circle.

Chassis - can be applied at the arrows or to the engine block. Then use remote or key to operate power locks.

The S60 has a trunk lock @ 1:20 www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdW0t2FJCfA

As above, you can jump start in the engine bay www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIZPC32iZVM

@ precopster:
Thank you very much. It worked perfectly and I learned something as I never knew that I can actually jump start the car from the bonnet.
I was always connecting the jumper cables to the battery in the boot, which I know is not perfect (nor safe).
