The March 2015 update of Apple's 11" MacBook Air features fifth generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, resulting in slightly increased performance and battery life.

How do you jump start a 2015 MacBook Air

I have a customer's MBA which got drunk one night recently on tequila and orange juice... Now it does not power on at all. Nothing. I found a page which shows how to jump start older machines, and have successfully used it's tips on those machines. ( However, they don't have one for the 2015 MBA, so I am asking iFixit community if anyone may know where to find the power-on pads for this model... It looks to be getting power from the charging port, as I see voltage on the battery, but not much... Maybe the problem is elsewhere, but I don't have any schematics or diagrams to refer to... Can someone point me in the right direction?

I have not worked on the 2015 model yet but on the earlier models disconnecting the battery and the mag-safe, then reconnecting has caused a spontaneous boot. But that could just be from water damage, but it's worth shot.
