The battery in my 2016 Vespa GTS 300 Super died and lucky for me, the cable in the manual unlocking mechanism's cable broke so I have have no idea how to get it started again.

Is there any way to pull the cable from a different place?

Or is there a way to jump start it from the outside?

What do I do?

Battery is under the floor board not under the seat.

Like how did your battery end up under your seat?

Ok... How do I access it?

Are there pos/neg terminals accessible without opening the seat? Just need to jump the thing to get it started.

Also, I'm not sure where the cable broke - When you pull the tab behind the ignition door the cable comes out loosely.

Battery is under the plastic cover. Undo 4 screws and remove cover. Battery is there.

Where that rack is on my floor over the black plastic part in the middle of the floor, just unscrew those four screws and the battery is there

Nice! I was able to remove those four screws and get access to the battery. OMG, I thought it was in the same place as my LX 150s.

Thank you, Y'all.

Good! Don't use a running vehicle to boost it.

Yeah I saw those posts. Honestly I think I'm just going to replace it. It's been dead for more than a year.
