BYD E6 Battery strip, SAFETY ISSUE and walk around

****
THE 300V BATTERY HAS NO CONTACTORS.
TREAT IT AS LIVE UNTIL YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SERVICE PLUG.
FIRST RESPONDERS BEWARE. First Responders please also be aware that all other EVs have automatic disconnects which make the electrical system safe in the event of a crash.
On this car the cables between the battery (under the rear seat) to the junction box under the cover in the boot/ trunk are always live (roughly 300V) until the service plug is removed.

Today the primates got to look at the privates of a BYD E6. This was (I think) BYD’s first attempt at a car. Overall it’s OK but there’s the big safety issue above.

I hope I’m wrong and that I’ve missed something but this is my assessment based on stripping this car.

Service Plug Location:
This is located under a cover in the storage box between the front seats.
