I know this is an old thread, but how did the guy disconnect the battery from under the hood? I thought only the jumper terminals were located under the hood.

Re: help on how to proceed with damage from known recall

Main thing is,no one was hurt,could have been a terrible outcome especially with a little one in the vehicle.Sure the OP could have pushed and made someone liable for what could have been disastrous,the mind boggles at what could have been had it been parked in a garage at their home.Quick thinking to disconnect the lead from under the hood,no way they could have got to the battery under the seat.
Let's hope the Insurers have since paid out and the OP walked away without owing a cent and thankful no harm was done to anyone!

I'd have to look, but I believe the remote terminals are between the battery and the electronics. Therefore, disconnecting the lead that connects the battery to the remote terminal should kill everything.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's a safety thing for exactly this type of situation so you don't have to fumble inside a car that is potentially on fire to disconnect the battery for things like the fuel pump or starter.

In a worst case scenario, fire fighters could pry the hood open to access the connection.

Further, when working on a car, such as when installing electronics or replacing the cooling fan, it makes it easier to kill the power and easily see that it is disconnected to avoid injury.
