It needed a 12 volt jump, lesson should be learned. Brother had the same problem with his Prius. Dumb dealer left it sitting in the showroom with the doors open and dome light on until it killed the 12 v batt, then sold him the car after charging the batt which was destroyed by being totally discharged, to the point where it would not even light the dome lamp.

Bricked is when the lithium battery has been totally discharged down to 0 current potential.
