There might be a little hold down plate at the bottom of the battery that overlaps a small ridge at the bottom edge of the battery to prevent someone from stealing it. It is usually can be seen from the side and if its cleaned off, then you will see a nut, and loosening it will let the battery freely be removed. look around the bottom edge of the battery and clean around, 9 times outa 10 you will see what im talking about. Hope this helps.

    Why on earth anyone would try stealing a battery from a car where you need to disassemble half the car to get to it is beyond me. The bolt holding the battery in place is over kill. Death to the designer.

Change battery


I just finished changing the battery myself on my own 2006 CLK500, so its clear in my mind. The battery is located under the hood (near the firewall) on the passengers side, just under the black plastic air cleaner housing, that is held in place by 3 metal clips. You need to unclip 3 clips, lift the air cleaner housing up and out to expose the 12V battery. You need a 10mm hex driver to remove the post clamps and a 13mm socket on the end of a 16 inch extension with ratchet to remove the 2 battery hold-down bolts, that are a bit hard to see without a flashlight (from the top, looking down). Remove the 13mm nuts and the bracket that holds the base of the battery in place and remove the battery. Installation is the reverse. Don't forget to install the battery acid drain hose and elbow, by removing it from the old battery. (It doesn't come with the new battery ($224.00 retail for new 12V battery). Also $35 core charge from Mercedes. That's it. And you'll have to reset your clock.

Will not turn over


See if you have power at the solenoid wire when key is held in crank position. If you do, then battery connections are not tight, or you maybe got a defective starter or solenoid. If no power when key is held in cranking position, trace the start circuit backward from the starter solenoid to the ignition switch-starter relay and the neutral safety switch are in that path. Check for power in the start wire leaving the ignition switch, by backprobing with a voltmeter or testlight the ignition switch harness connector.

1997 deville, battery drains overnight,pin pointed to a relay in trunk energized, removed relay, no dash lights.if you remove body 3 50 amp fuse it doesn't drain overnight, but also won't start...


I've replaced several rear body control modules that go bad and drain the battery. It is located behind the seat, black box about 4" x 5" rectangle. You can use a hand held scanner to diagnose them, the ones I replaced did throw a code. It is complicated and you need a pinout chart to diagnose it with an ohm meter. The ones I got were new and ran around $350.00

How do I replace the alternator


Hello, Alternators are a car part that can be very costly to fix because of labor costs. But with an hour or two of time and a little elbow grease, you can do it yourself. And to replace the alternator follow the following steps below:

Step 1. Pull your car into the garage or your work area. Turn the car off and let it sit for a while to cool.

Step 2. Begin by disconnecting the negative cable of the battery.

Step 3. Remove the serpentine belt from the pulley on the alternator. Do this by using a socket wrench to turn the serpentine automatic belt tensioner so that it allows slack in the belt. Then simply slip the belt off the alternator pulley.

Step 4. Locate and disconnect all the mounting bolts on the alternator, use a vehicle specific manual if you have any trouble.

Step 5. Disconnect all wires attached to the alternator then remove the alternator from the car.

INSTALLING NEW ALTERNATOR.

Step 1. Slide the new alternator into place. Do not worry about the serpentine belt yet.

Step 2. Replace the bolts that held the previous alternator to secure the new one in place.

Step 3. Attach the wires to the new alternator the same way they were attached to the old one.

Step 4. Adjust the serpentine belt tensioner the same direction you did in Section One to put slack in the belt. Wrap the belt around the pulley of the new alternator and then remove the socket wrench from the automatic belt tensioner.

Step 5. Inspect the belt to be sure it is not snug and follows the path required in the pulley and belt configuration diagram.

Step 6. Hook the negative battery wire back to the negative terminal on the battery.

My volt light want cut off and my battery want stay charged i got a new altinator and starter all my wires have power the only thing is the battery want stay charged


Either you have an electrical drain - or the battery needs replacement.
If the battery is over 5 years old - consider a new battery. If you have a test meter - remove the +ve with ignition and all other systems off. Use the meter to measure amps between +ve cable and battery +ve.

Possible causes of drain are a security system that never goes into sleep mode - or entertainment systems incorrectly wired - even CD changers stuck.

Just replaced knock sensor


You will need to disconnect the negative terminal on your battery and leave it unhooked for a few minutes in order to reset the computer. There are two type codes and if it is the major type, then that won't do it either. If it still codes after reattaching the battery cable, then you can take it by autozone and have them hook a hand held computer to it and clear the codes for you.

2003 Toyota Camry Alternator Fuze


To change the 100amp Alt fuse you need to get inside the fuse box. To do this remove the battery and then you'll need to remove the air intake to allow you to get to the screws to loosen the fuse box. Once you've removed the fuse you'll need to separate the top from the bottom, this can be done by inserting a small screw driver in the clips located around the outside of the box. Now you need to remove the screw on both the inside and outside which holds the 100amp fuse in place, the screw actually goes through the hole in the connector legs of the fuse. You should be able to see these holes in the legs of the new replacement fuse, so you know where they're located. It may be tricky but can be done, I've done it. Once you get both screws out the old fuse can be removed. Replace the old with the new fuse and reverse the process to replace all parts as before and you should have things running again. I did this with another helper as we were trouble shooting until we figured out that the legs were held by the two screws, one on each leg.
