2019 Honda Insight Battery Location

12-Volt Battery Location

The 2019 Honda Insight has a unique location for the 12-volt battery.  The 12-volt battery is located inside the center console, not under the hood.  To access the battery and the cut point on the battery cable, remove the trim panel on the passenger side.  Another interesting note, is the battery is a special absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery with a vent hole. If the vent tubing is not connected to the vent hole the release of hydrogen gas into the cabin is possible.

If you look under the hood you will find a jump start terminal in the under-hood fuse box.  A quick tip, if you find a  jump start terminal under the hood, the battery is located somewhere else or not easily accessible under the hood.
