Positive is connected to the positive terminal on the battery and negative is connected to a ground point on the engine away form the battery. Under the Hood, on the passengers side, is a positive terminal with a red plastic cover. Put your ground on a metal part of the engine. No need to pull up the back seat to hook to the battery.

I have an 89 and you unhook the battery for at least 30 seconds and hook it back up. TRY THIS FOR A 1995 CUTLASS 1) Unhook the positive and negative battery cables. 2) Wait 10 minutes. 3) Press the brake pedal in for 1 second 4) Touch the positive & negative cables together for 3 seconds 5) Hook the both cables to the battery. Start car. Just did today 10-24-209 Another way is to use an OBD reader to reset. This does not work on 96 cutlass using the innavo 3120 model reader from shucks
