Hi everyone,

From lack of use, the battery on my MP3 400 has gone dead. Could someone please PM me instructions for manually opening the seat so I can charge it?

Thanks!

I don't have an mp3, but it seems pushing in key and turning clockwise (?) should do it.

I am getting this idea from here: Dead battery cannot open seat

Thanks, but on the MP3 400 turning the key only opens the fuel filler lid or the "trunk".

Reaching in through the trunk, I can feel the latch to the seat, but it won't budge.

Next step?

Have you had any luck with this?

If not, hopefully someone with MP3 400 experience will be able to give further advice.

Not yet.

I didn't get back to it today.

Thanks.
