Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.
The issue may not be with the type of CMOS battery you are attempting to use, so much as what you are doing once you install the new CMOS battery.
You need to make sure that after you install the battery, before replacing the Air duct and closing the chassis, you press the SMU Reset button on the logic board then attempt to restart your Power Mac G5 and see if it makes a difference.
I would recommend you view the PowerMac G5 manual I have provided for you below, in order to get more a perspective on the process of replacing a battery in the PMG5.
