Re: location of battery in 2008 equinox
The battery is located under the cover immediately behind the Head lamp
assembly <DRIVER side> remove the three screws that secure the
cover and push the 4 tabs on the heat sink looking with the cords
running from it. You can now remove
this larger cover to reveal the battery the tighest space I have ever
seen in a GM.
Though sometimes they can be under the rear seat or in the rear compartment. If it is under the rear compartment there should be clamps that hold a cover down over it as well as if it is under the rear seat after removing that you should be able to get at it.

most chargers have a few different settings you want to put it ona slow charge for about 4-6 hrs bye slow charge I mean it should have a 2amp or a3amp trickle charge unless you are attempting to start the car immeditly the you will you the setting labled starting
If you stand at the front of the Equinox's hood that's open, look at the bottom-right corner area behind the headlight area, the battery is 'hidden' underneath the black box-like part that you need to remove clips or screws to lift it up to gain access to the battery cover to reveal the battery sitting onto the battery tray.
It's one of the common thing most people wonder where the battery is located.
The battery is secured into place by a large bolt/black rectangular shaped part onto the battery tray...just unbolt it and you're ready to pull it out.
Under the Hood Drivers Side You will see a black plastic box
which holds the computer. Right in front of the fuse box, Two sets of wires comming out of it.
It needs to be removed ,the whole box it unsnaps , Under it is a larger black cover, under that you will find the battery.
