Where did you read this info.? In the owner's manual that comes with all cars and is usually in the glove compartment, it should give you a lot of the info. that you are asking about. Usually, something like changing the battery which is going to have to be done more than once in the lifetime of a car; would not be extremely difficult. I have removed rear seats and it sounds worse than it is. If you have done very much work on a car, you know that the #1 thing that you are always told to do is to disconnect the negative battery cable; even if what you're doing is something like changing the tire, oil, etc. Just use some common sense and you'll be fine. Be sure that you don't touch the cables to each other or metal, but it sounds like you know that since your main concern if the seat.

Where are the fuses located for the air conditioner in a 2001 pontiac bonneville

The interior fuse box in a Pontiac Bonneville is underneath the backseat on the driver's side.

To remove the rear seat cushion:
1. Pull up on the front of the cushion to release the
front hooks.
2. Pull the cushion up and out toward the front of
the vehicle.

To reinstall the rear seat cushion:

1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then
route the safety belts through the proper slots in the
seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.
2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the
seatback so the rear - locating guides hook into the
wire loops on the back frame.
3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and
then press down on the seat cushion until the spring
locks on both ends engage.
4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly
routed and that no portion of any safety belt is
trapped under the seat. Also make sure the seat
cushion is secured.

The battery and main fuse blocks are located
under the rear seat cushion. The battery's ground
terminal and some relay wires are exposed.
To help avoid damage to the battery and wires,
be careful when removing or reinstalling the seat
cushion. Do not remove covers from covered
parts. Do not store anything under the seat, as
objects could touch exposed wires and cause
a short.

2000 bonneville Battery needed to be replaced. After I replaced the battery the radio does not work. It doesn't say locked on it. All the controls work but no volume. Any Ideas?

Check your fuse. The number 63 fuse on the fuse box underneath rear seat may be blown. It is for audio amplifier. If not check all fuses under hood and beneath rear seat. Hope this helps.

How to replace the battery on a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville?

I have a 2005 Bonneville GXP. I would expect yours to be the same as mine.
My battery is located under the rear seat.
Pull the fron of the seat straight up. There are two clips holding it.
Underneath you'll see the battery and a fuse block.
The cable and holddown clamp is pretty obvious.
Make sure you get the right size battery.
Also loosen the ground strap and inspect for corrosion and retighten.zeevert_1.jpgzeevert_2.jpg

Looking for my battery on a 2004 cadillac deville

the battery is located under the rear seat cushion on your cadillac deville, to remove the rear seat cushion just pull up on the front of the cushion to release it and pull it forward. you will see the battery and a fuse block.

there are also terminals under the hood that run directly to the battery for jumpstarting but going to the battery itself is the best way. those re-located terminals don't usually work because the amperage has to travel pretty far to get to the battery.
