    Battery dead from months idle

    Running jumpers from our other car, I can turn the fob, hear various mechanisms like door locks and the dashboard lights up. Car won’t start. Thoughts?

    And, does anyone please know the socket size to remove the clamp holding the battery in place? Clamp is inside the battery surround, towards the front of the car. Thank you!

    13 mm (based on my notes that I've made for the car). You need an extension because it's really deep down there.

    10 mm for the battery cables.
