Where is the battery reconnect switch on an '06 V8 Vantage?

I feel like an idiot. Hit the battery disconnect switch in the trunk because of problems I'm having with the radio. Now, when I try to turn on the car I get an error message on the dash saying "Check Battery Disconnect Switch." In the manual, it states that the battery reconnect switch is a yellow button behind the driver's seat, but I cannot, for the life of me find it!

Any help and/or pictures of this elusive button? Doesn't help that my seats are pushed all the way back and I cannot move them at the moment.

The reset button is hidden in the bulkhead behind the seat IIRC.
Sorry can't look it up as mine is a MY09.

Best of luck

Appropriate page from the 2006 Owners manual: Note location is behind RH seat!

Thanks guys. I also saw the info in the manual but still cannot locate it! Is it under or behind the RH seat?

Found! The manual is incorrect. It's not a yellow button. It's a large black button behind the RH seat at the base or the trim.

On the vertical panel behind the seat back, in an indentation. If you can't unlatch the seat back to tilt it forward to gain access, you are kinda screwed.

V8 Vantage Battery Re-Connect switch location & picture

Hi, read the postings and thought a picture of the battery reconnect switch might help. Mine is a 2006, US model. Yellow button down low on the panel behind the passenger seat. My manual wrongly stated that there is no button i.e. that inserting the key in the ignition suffices (page of manual also copied). Hope this is useful.
