C6 Dead Battery.

Ok. Guys... I've just experienced this C6 "dead battery".

The story:

Walk up and try to open door. Door will NOT open. No way. Go to rear of car and place key in slot over license plate. Rear trunk opens. Pull tab on left in rear luggage compartment. Volia, driver's door opens.

Place fob in glove box to relearn the FOB. Nope. Dead battery. Ok.

Oppps. drivers door closed. Now locked. Can't get out. Sh*t. Check to see if I have my cell in my pocket. Yup. Goodie. I can call the wife from my garage to get help. (I'm not wanting to call the wife... she'll lecture me on the corvette again and say, wow.. your new car doesn't even start..>!)

Decided NOT to call wife on cell phone. Crawl to back of trunk and pull luggage tab again. Preso... driver's door open.

Now I look for the hood latch. Looks like it's electronic too. No lights, dark, so I feel around and behind the labelled latch lies the pull latch for the hood.

Charge battery during the day. Charge reads FULL.

I'll see if I can start the car tomorrow morning.

What's going on here? Placed in reverse. No lights on.

Is this another GM feature? I see dead batteries.

No need to climb into trunk

There is a little lever on both the driver's and passenger's side the runs long the rocker panel just in front of the seat. Lift up and the door pops open.

This is the downside of electronic doors. One of the things abotu the C6 that I don't like.
