The only way to know what engine size you have is to have the vin number from the vehicle. I beleive the 8th digit is for the engine size.

If you have access to the vin number you can look at the eighth digit. If it is a "4" then you have a 2.2L engine. If it is a "T" then you have the 2.4L engine. However if your just replacing the battery it doesn't matter which engine it has. It's the same battery regardless if it's a 2.2 or 2.4. It takes a group 75 battery, pretty common. Should be able to get it at any parts store.

Put in new battery and a fuse blew, dont know which one but air conditioning, radio, windows, locks seats or alarm doesnt work.

Check the Mega Fuse right next to the battery. Open the fuse box, it's right there towards the battery black and about 2-3 inches long. It screws onto 2 metal terminals in the very front of the fuse box. Someone MAY have tried to jump start using one of the megafuse terminals, which is a no no. To check the fuse, need a volt ohm meter. Need to check continuity.

Yes it is safe. If you dont know how to jump start a car correctly here are the basic steps 1) never let the ends touch when the cable is connected to battery.
2) on newer models such as your dodge make sure you connect the red cable to the negative BUT the black cable to a grounded metal on the car. A bar or the edge of the hood that has metal is great. Dont touch the metal!!!
3) once both cars are connected wait a lil bit and rev the engine on the car with power and try turning on your car right after.

2002 Pontiac Montana. Got home turned van off. Went to get in it to go somewhere about 1/2 later it wouldnt start. Jumped it from another car and it started. Let it run a few minutes and turned it of and...

by the sounds of it the altanator is putting out enough voltage to keep the car running I my self don't think that it's the alt but the battery, if you don't know the age than it's not a bad idea to replace the battery. if the problem is still there than I would test the alt, should be putting out 14.6 volt at all times. but replace the battery first.

Starter problems helppppppppppp me pliz

Just clicks. Clicks real fast? Turn on your headlights. If they go dim when you crank, the battery is dead. If headlights go out when you crank, Ther is a bad battery connection. Loosen, move and retighten the connection If this is a side post battery, then remove , clean and reinstall cable to battery.
you will need a 5/16 wrench. If top post you need two 1/2 wrenches, Let me know. good luck

Don't know which Laguna you have but normally there is a reset button on the dash. switch the ignition on , don't start and twist the black button firmly either left or right and wait for the result.
