Undo the negative on the battery. ( immobilizer model) turn key to number 2 on the ignition as you would if starting the engine, then turn off back to 0. now you have 30 seconds to pull the negative lead off. with lead off push and support the wire to the side out of the way of the battery, then remove the positive lead from the battery and do the same to this wire as the negative move out of the way. Now you can remove the battery holding bracket or bolt. spray some wd40 on this before you start. remove the battery and check that the cage that the battery is in good condition any rust clean up and spray a new coat of paint on it. ( I usually put an old carrier bag on there if there is no plastic tray fitted, or a garden bag as so it will cover the battery when fitted.) when all clean and ready for the battery put the battery back in and secure it back down. then connect the positive lead I usually put some grease on the battery poles before refitting helps stop the battery being eaten by its self. then after this is done connect the negative it will spark but don't worry about this as it will do, secure the bolt down and cover over the battery if you have one or made one. now depending if you have the original radio fitted you will need to put the code back in to the radio. and after this is done the battery has be done now. just the time etc to be done if you want to engine sould start as normal.

How to fix volvo850 turbo in limp home mode

You need to have the codes read for a good response. But you have a couple problems going on. No spark could be a fuse, crank sensor, wiring , or the computer. Limp mode is another problem. It could be a engine or transmission problem. Limp mode doesn't kill the engine, it puts the transmission in a certain gear so you won't be able to cause more damage.

Check engine and battery lights are on after i changed both(battery and alternater) ...the car would run but the battery will be drained what's wrong wit my 96 eclipse

If you used a new or rebuild alternator, I'd suspect that the harness from the alternator to the battery is open circuit. It happens with age and corrosion. Measure the alternator terminal voltage, engine running. Should be about 13.7v. Same voltage should appear on the battery + terminal. If not, make up a heavy duty temp cable and run it from the alt to the battery.
