If you look down the side of the battery you will see a bolt... that needs to be removed to allow the clip at the base of the battery to move so the battery can be removed.

I'm having trouble removing the old battery which is dead. Any help?


There is a small nut on the side of the battery at the bottom 13mm I think. Remove battery cables and lift out If you can't get the cables off and they use bolts use vice grips or cut it off and buy a new one at the hardware store. Make sure there are sparks near top of battery. Put on safety glasses

My alero 2003 he make some noise went a push the gas went i start my car in is cool on the morning


Hi and welcome to Fixya!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector, let it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. Turn the engine on and observe how it goes. The system may just need a reset and removing the positive battery connector can do the trick.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Everything on the dash (except for the odomoter) just started going haywire, ck engine light on etc., security light and then it just quit working alltogether. The alternator was checked and it is okay.


CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS. IF NOT WEAK BATTERY OR BATTERY CABLES AND BATTERY POST CORRODED NEED CLEANING OR REPLACING.DUE TO LOCK OUT FEATURES TURN OFF RADIO FIRST BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.
