Just done mine with no probs no problem at all,just make sure you have the key in the doorlock to turn the alarm off,that alarm is very loud and I almost sh.. myself a cpl of times forgetting about the alarm coming on hooking her back up lol. Another thing you have to look out for is that in case you have a factory Stereo that you have the code for it.

Disconnect the battery. It cannot blow without the battery. Same when putting it back. Make the electrical connections and install the airbag then reconnect the battery.

Disconnect the battery. Alternatively you could run a wire from the ligter of the towing vehicle to the battery of the towed vehicle.

A "battery disconnect" is nothing more than a special SWITCH designed and manufactured to be able to carry very large [heavy] electrical current. The one with which I'm familiar mounts on the positive battery terminal after the cable has been removed, and then the cable connector is attached to the output terminal of the disconnect switch. This switch allows one to totally and completely "kill" the battery voltage to the auto circuits, without having to use a wrench to loosen a battery terminal clamp and manually "wrestle" it from the terminal.

You just need to disconnect the negative side of the battery, which should be labeled. You're gonna need a socket wrench in order to do it. And possibly some pliers with a rubber handle in order to get the cables out of the way easily without shocking yourself; because the battery does still produce power even after you take it off, this just stops the power from going to anything in the car. I just recently had to do this in order to install subs and an amp in my 97 passat. Hope this helps.

You may damage the catalytic converter(s) and you probably won't pass emissions.

You wont lose the code by changing the battery. Just open the back and replace the battery . Make sure you use the correct battery and install in properly.

Disconnect the battery. Warning: If you disconnect the battery for an extended period of time, the radio will not work and you will need to enter a security code to get the radio to work again. The dealership will charge you $$ to supply you with the security code.

They don't. Injectors go bad, TPS can be a problem if you do stupid things. The actual throttle body is a pretty simple device. If you like to unplug sensors without taking 30 seconds to disconnect the battery, you are going to have a lot of problems.

Yes you can, however you will forever get a check oil level alert on the info-center computer.

If you disconnect without turning off the charger, the sparks caused may ignite the hydrogen discharged from the battery while charging.

Without having a scan tool, you can disconnect the battery, and let sit for apx. 10 min., then reconnect.

Disconnect the positive battery cable from the battery . Jack up the right front side of truck . Disconnect the cables from the starter and and remove the two bolts that hold the starter in place and it should drop down without to much trouble and then do the reverse to put the new one in .

A rechargable deep cycle battery can be fully discharged without damaging the battery. Any auto battery cannot be discharged without damaging the battery. Any dry cell rechargable battery can be fully discharged without damaging the battery.

Should be able to just disconnect your battery for a few minutes and it will erase the codes.

Your battery is being drained by a short to ground ,SOMEWHERE. Easiest way to find this out for sure , without a test meter, is to disconnect the Positive battery terminal when you shut down engine. Then see if it starts the next day.
