Usualy it's a 10mm or 12mm. Sometimes you can get away with a 3/8 or 1/2 12 point socket.

How can I get a screw out a car Battery holder and the screw keeps going around

Hi Vanessa:
That problem can be a real pain. It happened to us in our Pontiac Aztek. What had happened was that there is a nut cast in the plastic battery tray. The hold down bolt threads down into the nut. Even a small amount of corrosive from the battery can sieze these threads. Trying to unscrew it breaks the plastic away from the nut and it spins.
The task now is to try to get the pieces separated. If you're lucky, soking the area where the nut is with penetrating fluid and leaving it overnight might allow it to loosen up. Since the nut is already turning, you will need to put lots of upward force on the screw to try to keep the nut from turning. This did not work for me but it's worth trying.
The next step is to cut the screw, remove the battery, and remove the tray so you can get at the retaining nut and remove it from the underside of the tray.
If you're lucky you can JB WELD a fresh nut in place and just have to replace the piece that you cut.
If you're not lucky, you replace the tray.
Patience, and scraped knuckles! Enjoy.

Where is the ecm located

why ask this. leave it alone. mess it up and its very expensive error and most never fail. 85% exchanges are good. sad to see.
post symptoms.??????
post Scan codes, DTC; errors found?
SCAN it. did you, with a REAL scan too, if not?, why not?

but if just curious, why not just read the FSM (buy one)
or login to and look.
its there and can very by engine size ,
but what trans, the PCM is different by A/T or M/T
PCm means ECU + TCM = PCM.
see? the module with the most connector is the PCM.
easy huh< easy to find in most cars, and newer cars start in the engine bay, easy look , all exposed, like 1min work that.

here is the FSM quote.
  1. Remove the battery tray:
    • Disconnect the negative, then the positive battery cables.
    • Unfasten the retainers, then remove any necessary battery hold-down clamps.
    • Remove the battery.
    • Remove the 3 battery cable harness locators from the battery tray.
    • Remove the battery tray bolt and nut.
    • Remove the battery tray.
  2. Disconnect the 2 Powertrain Control Module (PCM) electrical connectors.
  3. Remove the 4 bolts and the PCM.
do not disconnect it.
or lose data.
do not.!@!!
nor mess with it , with battery connected.
nor touch pins with hands, for fun, (ESD damage)
nor hot wire it or any of its inputs or outputs.

PCM 101, end.

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.

99 dodge stratus, battery hold down bracket. I broke 1 of the bolt how do I remove and replace.

The best way would be to remove the battery and try to heat the nut and use a pair of grip pliers to remove the broken bolt.
Another way would be the remove the nut, this nut may be welded to tray. you will need to chisel it off and then use a regular nut. the only problem would be you should put a small tack weld on the nut to keep it from spinning next time you need to remove the battery.
The last thing is if it does not have a welded nut but rather a clip nut, in which you can pry if off by breaking the clip in two and removing it.

How do i install a starter for a honda accord v6 2003

It's really pretty straight forward. You can access it easier if you remove the battery and the battery tray. Then, two 17mm bolts, one 12mm nut holding the battery cable and one spade clip and your done.

Bracket holding battery is off cant get it back on

It should only have an L bolt that should reach down to the battery tray through the battery hold down bracket and turn to latch on to the bottom of the tray and screw down the nut at the top to get tension.
