Oldsmobile silhoutte minivan battery replacement

how do i change the battery, it is different from other cars?

Remove the fuse/relay box from the round support bar and remove the support bar after to gain access to the battery.

Remove the battery cables and the battery hold-down clamp, then exchange the battery.

Thorouhly clean the cable connectors before attaching.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

It depends on the year/make of your vehicle. Disconnecting the battery can cause all sorts of headaches on some vehicles. I now automatically connect a battery back-up on any vehicle where the battery has be disconnected to prevent potential problems.
