How to Get Into your Gen 2 Prius Trunk Hatch When Your 12V Battery Dies Is Dead. My 12V battery died in my 2004 Prius. To change the 12V battery, it is much quicker and easier to go through the back hatch. However, when your 12V is dead the outside hatch release does not work. So, this is the only way to open the back hatch when your 12V battery is dead. Good luck!
