Re: 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.

The battery is under the rear seat on the passengers side.Just make sure and disconnect the ground first when removing the battery and connect the ground last after installing the new one.Hope this helps.Good luck.Let me know if you have anymore questions.
As long as the smoke did not come from the wiring or the battery it's OK. Neg to neg connection is for safety reasons(To prevent short circuit) so if you did not see major sparking you should be allright. Rats can cause havoc in a car. They simply love the insulating plastic on electrical wiring. Look for chewed wiring and re-insulate. ps. Jump starting is not the cure all for a dead battery. Especially if the car's been standing for a long time.(long periods of inactivity are not kind to a vehicle) Cold weather makes things that much worse. Get the battery properly re-charged.
posible bad battery cable or bad ground,check all the wiring,i have had battery cables that battery acid has gotten inside the cable and eaten the copper wire and the cable looks good on the outside, check the simple things first to save unneeded costs.
You can buy a battery at an autoparts store or even some department stores which feature autorepair (walmart,sears) or even some shopping clubs (BJ's). Batteries become more expensive as you go from 48 months to 60-72 months and so on.
Look for a battery which has at least 800 cold cranking amps. Wherever you buy the battery will have a catalog to ensure the new battery fits your car. Take a quick look under the hood to see where the battery posts are positioned. i.e. POS right front, POS left front, POS left back This will make things easier when installing the new battery. I hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
Had battery replaced on 2005 DTS and afterward the radio/NAV/On-Star would not work.(Totally dead) The dealer who installed could not locate problem. (No GM dealer in Amador County, CA). I read several forums citing this/similar problems. I checked the three fuses labelled "radio, audio, NAV" by pulling, checking and reinstalling (all three were good). When I then restarted the car, everything was once again working! Poor connection? Corroded contacts? Some mysterious computer glitch? Who knows?
