My apologies for the dumb question but there's completely no power to my car even though I had it plugged in last night. I can't even get into my glove compartment to get to the owners manual to see how to boost the car.

Can anyone tell me how to do it?

The question I have is "WHY" is the battery dead and needing a jump?
This is the second post this week about a Karma with a dead battery?

What's draining it.....

Lormax or Harlyguy, can you post about possible cause and preventive action. Thanks

well this is a bit embarrassing but it was my fault. I had recently bought a small car heater because it s way more efficient than using the actual car heater. When I left the car to charge over night, I had left it on assuming that when the car powered down, it would automatically shut off my portable heater.

Luckily it didn't start another headline grabbing EV fire. :D

I think you would have been OK if you had plugged it into the rear 12V socket. AFAIK, that one goes out when the car goes to sleep.

If you get the car into ready mode I suggest you charge the 12 volt battery even though people say the HV battery will recharge the 12 volt battery which it will .Its good practice to charge the 12 volt battery over night on a trickle charger . When the 12 volt system gets that low I wouldn't depend on the HV battery to fully charge the 12 volt battery .
