Just wondering if there is a way to put the Clarity in neutral if the 12 volt battery is dead and so the car won't start at all. It can't be towed and must be put on a flat bed. How would that be accomplished in such a situation??

Some cars have a method for putting it into neutral when the power is not on but I am not aware of anything like that for the Clarity. OTOH if the problem is really just a dead 12V battery then there is no reason that it can't be jump started.

Thanks for your reply.

Buy one of those small, ($50) cheap Lithium car starters to keep in your car for these occasions (which likely will happen) so you can quickly jump the 12V battery (it takes just a few seconds).

There is a very common problem with cars losing their 12V charge when the car is left in a certain state--a combination of being partially left in an "on" or "accessary" mode which drains the 12V battery even though the main, traction battery has a full charge.
