So, the Escape was sitting in the parking garage for a couple weeks with the keys inside and no spare available (don't ask, this is a shared company vehicle with keypad entry). The keypad isn't working. I suspect the battery is dead.
Does anyone have any ideas how to get into the car? I was reading on a forum about popping the hood from underneath or trickle charging from an exposed positive wire. Where can I find an exposed positive wire under the Escape?
