I own a 1990 Mercury Cougar Bostonian... what is the correct size battery recharger for this car? Schumacher is the best brand I think. Thank you in advance.

Most chargers have settings for different size and type of batteries and also have regulators to prevent overcharging. Don't buy the very cheapest, but the $60 (approx) units are good choices for most hobbiest uses.

Why Pius "initializing" after 12V reconnect?

There are some systems which are kept alive as long as the auxiliary battery is connected. If the battery is disconnected the idle speed control valve learning value will be initialized and symptoms like loud rattle from the hybrid trans axle assembly could be heard.
Always perform the idle speed learning procedure if the auxiliary battery is disconnected for any reason.

My scion xb 2005 wont start i charged the battery for 30 min or so and still wont start but i can turn on the radio, lower the windows, and start the air conditioner(does not get cold)

Still possibly a battery fault, radio uses about .3 amp, windows 3-5 amps, STARTER needs approx 30 amps. So a bad battery will power the auxiliaries but not the starter. Try a boost start from a known good battery and take it from there.

I cannot attach auxiliary power cables to the battery in a saturn sl2 1994. The battery terminals have a seal around them that disallows any 'normal' battery connection to take place.

I had a problem with attaching to the fuse box relay tap. The fuse box received a poor connection and the car had trouble running. I ended up using small hose clamps to clamp the wires to the exposed terminals directly. So I guess the moral of the story is: "In order to solve electrical problems, you need plumbing know-how". Thanks for the feedback guys.

You should be able to find this in the owner's manual.
The items with batteries that are important are
1) How many Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) are needed to start this vehicle.( Should be in manual and some where on old battery)
