Exclamation '09 Escape HYBRID wont start

Hey guys, I've imported '09 Escape HYBRID from USA.

Car was idle for about 3-4 months (maybe more) and both 12v and BIG battery has been drained (discharged).
As you know there is no jump up button for BIG battery in 09 escape so I don't really know how can I start my car?

Tried to jump up 12v battery for 15-20 minutes from another car and also replaced 12v battery but with no luck, car wont start...
When I am jumping up 12v and putting key to ON position there is some wrench and triangle in the gauges...

Any ideas?

Your hybrid battery is completely discharged. The 12V only powers the computers. The HV battery starts the engine. Until your HV battery is charged, it will not start.

We’re you able to get the HV battery to charge up? Having the same exact problem and not sure what to do.
