Hello,

I forgot to switch off the light inside my Prius III, and now my car
battery is empty. How to charge it?

Just like any normal car, you have to jump start your car or replace the
battery.

Your owner's manual has complete information on that.

The battery is in the trunk and is easily removed, once you open the
hatch; however, Toyota has thoughtfully provided jumper posts under the
hood so you can just jump start it.

Read your owner's manual.  It has all this information.

The manual is incomprehensible.  For the start, it doesn't explain how
to open the hatch. After lots of trying, I found the button under the
hatch, found the stick which should keep it opened, and found the hole
for this stick (this part was the hardest, it is well hiddened).  I
easily found the auxiliary battery, opened it, found "+", but was
unable to find "-", no matter how hard I tried.  The small picture in
the manual is incomprehensible.  It seems that "-" is somewhere in the
right upper part, far away from the battery, near the tank.  The
sentence "Connect the clamp on the negative (black) jumper cable to
the negative (-) terminal on the booster battery" doesn't help at
all.  Where is the negative terminal?
