Before you attempt to disconnect the battery make sure you have eye protection on. To disconnect the battery there should be a rubber cover over the positive (red) connector on the battery. LEAVE IT THERE FOR NOW. Using a 5/16" wrench (or a 8mm wrench) disconnect the negative (- or black) cable from the battery then pull back the rubber boot on the positive (+ or red) cable and remove the bolt holding on that cable. When reconnecting the battery connect the positive cable first then the negative cable.

Battery drain

On late 80s, early 90s Fords, the throttle position sensor going bad will drain the battery. If You have an amp hooked up, the internal switch could be going bad, causing it to pull power. With the switch off, loosen the hot cable, and unhook the amp, see if the cable sparks when you touch it to the battery post. If it still does, keep unhooking stuff and pulling fuses till it stops arcing.
This will let you know what is draining the battery. Also check for frayed wires,

Disconnecting the battery should reset it but I would bet that the light will come back on. I would have a auto parts store read the error code for you. They can also reset it. There are two o2 sensors on this car one on the manifold and one down stream from the converter. If you are getting an o2 error code it could also be the converter.

The body shop unhooked my car battery and know my anti-theft system is locked . how do i unlock it . they said something about they unhooked my alarm. PLEASE HELP!!

This worked on a 2000 so try it and see if it works on yours.

Disconnect both battery wires and "short" them together. This kills stored memory.

(1)Turn key to crank & then release. Security light still on. Wait till it goes off (maybe 15 minutes)
(2)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(3)Turn to off. Repeat step one.
(4) Turn to off. Wait 20 seconds and start car.

Key must go to full off on each pass. Must have fully charged battery. Good Luck.

Even if this does not work a good testimonial would be appreciated

Hello i am welding on my 2000 chevy silverado z71 pick up should i unplug the computer and disconect the battery if so where is the computer

Hello there:
I wouldnt suggest disconnecting the computer simply due to the fact is that it will loose all of its storeed information and it would he to be reprogrammed and even though it may reprogram itself there is things that it may not be able to do then you will be stuck paying for the computer to be reprogrammed and this is not cheep
So i would definatly remove the battery from the vehical

2000 Saturn LS1 dashboard battery light

the light is across one diode in the rectifier pack in the alternator, usually there are 9 of them, one of yours has failed, probably the failed diode is leaking current and draining the battery. In this instance the battery will be good (if drained) and the other 8 diodes will show a good charge.Get the current drain checked with everything switched off

Reset service engine soon warning light
