There is, turn off the radio first and then disconnect the negative battery terminal first (Black wire) and then the positive terminal (Red wire). Once wires have been disconnected, un bolt the battery retainer at one of the sides on the base of the battery and then pull the battery straight up, not to tilt the battery to keep any acid from spilling through the breather holes. To install same process just in revers and positive first then negative. Good luck and hope this helps.

Have new battery will not hold charge and car wont run with car running disconnect


Never disconnect the battery when car is running. I know that used to be the old way to check if alternator was working, but that was before electronics became the norm on vehicles. On today's vehicles, or any with a computer in it, disconnecting the battery with key on, or engine running, there is too great a chance you could fry the delicate electronic circuits that the computer requires. Always turn key off before disconnecting the battery.
Okay, enough soap-boxing. You need a new alternator, if the car won't run with battery disconnected. Next time, use a volt meter.

I changed the ignition on my 2003 cadllac deville but in the procss my anti theft system came on how do i reset it?


I own a 1991 Cadillac Sedan Deville. The main computer, which is behind the dashboard, or under the dash, needs to be reset. It controls all intricate functions of the car. It also is utilized, in diagnosing your cars issues through codes found either at the dealership, or at automotive shop that specializes in Cadillacs. Hope it helps.

Draw on battery when car on


First disconnect the battery overnight just to make sure the battery is not self discharging......if it's dead or down in charge while disconnected....time for a new one.
Now.....if the battery is good....disconnect one battery cable and place a 12 volt test light between the cable and the battery post the cable had just been attached to. A bright light means a drain in the car.
Your job is to remove one fuse at a time until the light dims.
A dim light is OK...clock memory etc.
Remember....a open car door is a drain......the dome light.....so keep them closed while pulling fuses.
Also....if the fuses don't show a drain......disconnect ALL wires from the alternator....there could be a drain there.
Just keep disconnecting one thing at a time until the light goes out or dims.
