2009. Where is OnStar backup battery located?


Sorry, there isn't one. Car computes are not like home computers. On star can be scanned for problems. Code readers won't read them.

Multiple error codes reported: U0100


UO 100-109 typically loss (or near loss) of communications with Onstar. Problem may be loose harness connection or defective onstar backup battery. I'm working on this issue with my 2008 Vue as we speak. I had a very similar code before, last year, and the dealer replaced the battery and the issue was resolved. There does exsist a service dept advisory informing dealers of this Onstar battery issue. Good luck.

How do i remove my present onstar system and replace it with a digital system? Also whete is my current onstar system peices located st so i can remove them? 2002 buick rendezvous cx.


The Vehicle interface unit VIU and the Vehicle control unit VCU and the receiver is located behind the glove box in the passenger footwell. the onstar button is located int he overhead console. the modules are vin specific so they cant be swapped out without GM. you can remove them I have a 02 and since its no longer supported by onstar i yanked out the VIU and VCU and the cell phone receiver. then took the GPS transponder off the front driver side of the windshield and the rear attenna off the back glass and got an overhead console minus onstar and put it up. They unplug and cause no problems The fuse is fuse 32. The actual guts of the Onstar system is in the frontmost overhead compartment that is between the driver and passenger seats. However, if the option wasn't purchased you'll just have an extra slot for sunglasses.

Where is the backup battery for onstar on 2008 chevy impala


It's in the trunk on the left side just behind the wheel well. It is attached to the VCIM. Just pull the carpet back and you should see it.

How do i disable onstar gps in 2003 chevrolet 2500 series crewcab


Unplugging the Onstar unit should deactivate it and if you can get to it. I haven’t yet taken the time to locate the Onstar unit in my Yukon. In older Yukons, Tahoes, and Suburbans the Onstar was in the cargo area, above and behind the right rear wheel well. However, it’s my understanding that when they redesigned the Onstar unit for smaller size, they started putting it behind the instrument cluster in the dashboard. Good luck

How do you turn off the GPS onstar in a chevy hhr


  • Open the back hatch of your Chevroleticon1.png HHR.2
  • Lift up the floor maticon1.png on the bottom of the trunk. You will see your spare tire, jack and OnStar unit. Unscrew the top of the OnStaricon1.png unit, using a Phillips screwdriver.

    Remove the lid from the top of the OnStar unit box; you will see three white plastic cables running from the OnStar box to your vehicleicon1.png.

    Unplug the three cablesicon1.png from the OnStar unit to disconnect them.
