There should be a button tucked around licence plate to release it,your door,s will have to be unlocked for it to work,and this is not in any manual.

At the least tell ford to bring you a cord to charge the car,sorry but that is all i can tell you at this time,but dont stop at this,because it will happen again.

Since this is a brand new vehicle I'd contact your Local Ford Dealer and let them deal with it, for free, under warranty. HTH. -Jim
