    the cross bar should be the only way the batter is held down. Take the battery to an autoparts store and have them load test it to make sure your battery bad or if you have another issue. Good Luck

How do i reinstall a battery in a 2001 chevy lumina? there is a wedge of some type i don't know where it goes

1. Place the battery in the car so that the red cable is closest to the positive (+) post and that the black is closest to the negative or (-) post.

2. once the battery direction is determined, the wedge can be put in place. The wedge normally fastens to the bottom battery tray and at the same time sets along side of or in a small recess cutout in the lower part of the battery. There should be a bolt or nut that fastens the wedge to the battery tray and allows one parts of the wedge to hold the battery at the same time. Place the wedge on the battery where it is to hold the battery and then tighten the nut/bolt down which should hold the battery down tight. Sometimes the nut or bolt used to hold the wedge down will get rusty and needs to be sprayed with a rust penetrant like "pb blaster". PB blaster can be purchased at most auto part stores and walmart.

Remove wiper assembly plastic cover. Then remove front bolt that holds the cross brace bar over the battery. Loosen the bolt at the other end of the brace bar and rotate brace bar from over the battery to a new location and proceed to remove the plastic battery hold down mount on bottom of battery.Disconnect the negative then positive battery cables from the battery then rotate battery up and out of compartment -- this is a very tight fit. It will come out and the clearance is very small. This is a neat challenge. Be sure to buy proper size battery for replacemeent

In what order do I need to disassemble my 1999 Chevy Lumina to change the battery and add an inline disconnect switch as the car sits for long periods of time without being started. Thanks, Ron

You'll need to remove the cross bar and the air filter box. You can then remove the washer fluid reservoir. Then disconnect the negative cable and the positive cable from the battery. Remove the battery hold down and then the battery can be removed.

As far as installing a battery disconnect they are all a little different so without seeing what you have it would be hard to describe how to install it.

The battery is under the hood, just behind the passenger headlight.
There is a black bar that crosses over the battery and goes back towards strut tower. Remove this bar and the three bolts; probably a 12 or 13mm socket.
Remove the negative (black) battery cable with an 8mm socket or wrench. A 5/16" should work also.
Then remove the positive (red) cable with same socket.
Remove the battery clamp and bolt. Probably a 12mm socket with extension.
It's tight, but the battery can be removed.
Reverse instructions for installing the battery. (That includes hooking up the red battery cable first, then the black cable.)

How do you change the battery on a 2004 chevy venture

You have to remove the round support bar. Two bolts in front one back by hood hinge. The bar slides out of the relay box, and the relay box lays over toward the motor.
There is a hold down on the backside of the battery at the bottom that needs to be removed, then take battery posts bolts out. Remove the battery put new one in, put the hold down bolt back in.
Connect battery posts up lay the relay box back put the round support bar back thru it put bolts in it and tighten everything back up and you are done.
Thank you for using fixya

How to change the battery on a 1999 Chevy Lumina LTZ

You will need an extra long extension for your socket wrench. Or you can just stack a few small ones together. You will have to extend your reach from above the battery.
Be careful not to touch the positive post when your socket is on the bolt. Good luck

2) Raise vehicle front and suitably and safely support.
3) Remove cover from starter wiring (small right angle-like black plastic cover).
3) Loosen large wiring harness (underneath starter) so that it can be moved out of the way.
4) Remove outer nut and wires from solenoid.
5) Remove outer nut and wires wires from starter.
6) Remove two (2) screws retaining plastic flywheel cover and cover. You will need to do this - otherwise you will be unable to remove the front bolt holding the starter to the engine block. This cover is a small black plstic piece located where starter penertates the flywheel cover.
