I’m not sure if there is something in the water or if the moon is out of alignment, but there seems to be a recent rash of people getting trapped in Corvettes whose battery has died. We already told you of the one of guy who called 911 after getting locked in his Corvette ZR1, but here is another frustrated gentleman whose calls for help to his friends result in this hilarious video being posted on youtube.

Modern Corvettes have electronic door mechanisms and if the battery goes dead, you have to use the manual release pull. But unless you’ve had a Corvette or read the owners manual, you may be unaware of the fail-safes that GM has provided. First, both doors have the manual release pulls between the seats and doors. Just lift it up and the door will magically open. There is also a driver’s door release in the rear hatch. Check out CorvetteOnline.com for illustrations if you’re still confused.
The one thing you don’t want to do is pull the hood release cable so hard that it breaks. As one of the “friends” tells the trapped tech in the video, “you’re fu**ed!”
