How to Enter & Exit a Corvette With a Dead Battery - Ross Downing Chevrolet
The Chevy Corvette doesn't use an actual "key" to lock and unlock its doors. So how to you get into a Corvette when the battery dies?
The C6 Corvettes use a fob that contains a key within it. If your Corvette battery dies, simply remove the key from within the fob device and insert it into the keyhole above the license plate panel at the rear of the car. Turn the key to unlatch the trunk, where you will find a cable on the left side of the trunk interior that you can pull to open the driver side car door.
How do you get out of a Corvette with a dead battery?
Help avoid this potentially embarrassing situation by knowing how to get out of your own car! There is a lever that you can pull on the driver side floor on the left side of the seat that will open the door for you. It may sound simple, but you wouldn't want to be trapped in a hot Vette in the summer yelling for help!
