Replacing battery in 2007 Saturn Outlook

Will I have to reprogram car security system after replacing the car battery

Posted by on

  • William Albin Feb 21, 2012

    Biggest problem was getting the battery out of the well behind seat. Need one of those battery straps to help lift the beast. No problems on the reconnect, even the radio stations were still saved? Security system worked just like before.

    Make sure to disconnect the negative (ground) first and reconnect last. The front passenger seat must be all the way forward and the plastic over over the rear seat rails unsnapped to get the trap door over the battery out of the way. There is a small connector with a couple of 18ga. wires that needs to be disconnected (unsnapped) to make it easier to get the battery out of the well.

No! You should not have to reprogram anything except the radio.

SOURCE: where is the battery located for a 2007 saturn outlook

Try behind the front passenger seat under a trap door in the floor. A lot of these mid-size suv's ar elocating the battery under trap doors in the floor behind the front seats, or under the mid-rear seats.

SOURCE: want to replace bulb in headlight in 2007 saturn outlook how hard is it"

It's not hard. Open the hood, locate the backside of the lite thats out(follow the wires) give the housing a slight counter-clockwise turn to remove it.
The bulb should pull out. Use a tissue to re-install the new bulb, as the oils on your fingers will cause the new one to overheat and burn out, prematurly

If you are looking to convert your radio from XM to Sirius, there are a number of kits available by typing 'convert radio from XM to Sirius' into your favorite search engine. But why bother? XM and Sirius have merged and you can now get Sirius programming on the XM band.

SOURCE: headlight bulb replacement for 2007

To replace a headlamp on a Saturn Outlook you need to access it via the wheel well. So jack up the car and remove the front tire. You'll see a collection of phillips head trim screws and plastic snap in panel connectors holding the plastic wheel well in place. Remove the screws and snap in connectors. To remove the connectors, pry the center button up with a small screwdriver. One it's up the whole connector should pop free.
Remove the wheel well.
Turn the black plastic cap on the back of the headlamp assembly 1/4 turn counterclockwise and it should come free. Now the lamp wiring and connector should be visible. Turn the lamp ~90 degrees and it should pop free. Test the bulb. More people have problems with the wiring connection and the bulb is usually OK.

SOURCE: How do I change battery

No matter who does the job you will have to reprogram everything. Some parts stores sell a product that uses a 9 volt battery and plugs into the cigarette lighter, but in my experience they almost never work.

When you disconnected the battery to install the bcm you activated the theft system on the radio. This is designed to lock the radio if the power is disconnect. You need to get the radio code from the dealer or look in your paperwork for the car

2007 saturn outlook no a/c when idling works fine when driving

Check cooling fan operation and clean condenser/radiator. Just like the A/C system on a house, a car's condenser needs cleaned. It is subject to a lot more debris and contaminants because it is driving around in it. Use just a garden hose, no high pressure sprayer and spray through the grill as well as from the engine comparment to the front to wash out.

2007 saturn outlook, charging system light came on while driving, now car wont turn over and has power

When the light comes on, stop driving. It could be the alternator burned out, but it could also be that the belt broke or came loose. So you risk not only ruining the battery, but also overheating and ruining the engine.
First check the belts and batter terminals.
Loose or corroded terminals will also make the light come on.
Now that you have allowed the battery to discharge, you need to put it on a charger and bring it back up to full charge.
If you try to avoid this by jump starting the car, most likely you will ruin the alternator even if it was not already bad, because a bad battery will take more than a normal alternator can safely put out.

Then put a voltmeter across the battery.
It should read 12.5 volts.
When you crank it there should be a drop to about 10.
Then when you rev the engine, it must go over 14.
If not, the charging system is not working and if there is no loose wire or engine ground connection, you will have to try replacing the alternator.
