Unbolt the positive( { + } red) terminal, than unbolt the negative ( {-} black) terminal. unbolt the hold down bracket, remove battery, installation is reverse. Remember, positive off first, on last.

Unless you Have AoolCodes DEALER IS A GOOD IDEA

Disconnecting/Connecting The Battery

Always stop the engine before disconnecting the battery negative lead and make sure the battery positive lead is isolated i.e. wrapped in a suitable cloth.

WARNING: Radio code saving devices must not be used when conducting work on air bag or fuel systems. It must be noted that, when using these devices, the vehicle electrical system is still live albeit with a reduced current flow.

NOTE: Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes are known and, that no data is required from the powertrain control module as battery disconnection will erase any fault codes and idle/drive values held in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM). It is not necessary to disconnect or remove electronic control modules.

Always disconnect the battery before commencing repair operations which require:

  • The vehicle to be jacked up
  • Work on the engine
  • Work underneath the vehicle
  • Arc welding
Alternatively a Radio Code Saver may be used. With the battery disconnected, a Radio Code Saver will allow sufficient current to pass to maintain the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player memory, operate the clock and supply the door operated interior lights while isolating the battery in the event of a short circuit.

Reconnecting the Battery

WARNING: If the battery has been on bench charge the cells may be giving off explosive hydrogen gas. Avoid creating sparks, and if in doubt cover the vent plugs or covers with a damp cloth.

Always make sure that all electrical systems are switched OFF before reconnecting the battery to avoid causing sparks or damage to sensitive electrical equipment.

Always reconnect the battery positive lead first and the negative last, ensuring that there is a good electrical contact and the battery terminals are secure.

Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time.

Re-enter the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes and preset' frequencies, if known.

Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the powertrain control module have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes . Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the powertrain control module to relearn idle values.

When you put the key in and try to start it, it acts like it is not going to start but it finally does

Do you know how old the battery is? Check the top of the battery or one of the sides. It will have a date code stamped into it. If the battery is an AC Delco, I would almost bet its factory and needs changed. You can always take the vehicle to any auto parts stores and they will test your battery (while still in your vehicle) for free. Not only will they test it for free, most will install it for free also.
If you want to know more about date codes on batteries I've included a basic instruction on reading the codes. This code system is pretty much the same no matter where the battery was bought or what brand it may be.................Date codes can read either 10/12 (Oct 2012) or B2 (Feb 2012). Keep in mind AC Delco sometimes has codes that would read 2B (opposite but still means Feb 2012, they just like things backwards I guess).

Want to know the code for my radio. It seems to be in safe mode. I just bought the car and there is no owners manual. It's a 2006 Volkswagon Jetta 2.5L engine

You will have to go to the dealer to get the code. While you are at it get the instructions for putting the code in and don't lose them. Everytime you unhook the battery you will have to put the code back in. Hope this helps.

Radio Unlock Code

if you bought the car new then there should be writen in the manual the code for the theft lock system on the radio. if pre-owned then it might ,might not be in there. or if you dont have one at all. go to your nearest GM dealer and have them fix it by finding the code. make sure to have them write it down for you incase this happens again.
