Battery Substitute 00-05 Bonneville and Lesabre

This is a step by step how to video on replacing the battery on 00-05 Pontiac Bonneville and 00-05 Buick Lesabre. I’ll show you how to locate it and how to …


  1. stop saying metric words while working on a GMC. its offensive 😛

  2. Question/help… My message center is reading "trunk ajar" but it is not open… any help would be sufficient, thnx in advance

  3. Great video!! This was very helpful and so informative.

  4. Great stuff; hope it helps with my old 1995 Buick LeSabre….

  5. Best instruction video, big thanks!

  6. Great Job …. VERY helpful, especially your explanation of the vent harness! Btw, adding a drop of oil to each battery tab makes it much easier to refit the harness. THANKS!

  7. Heh, I like how he has his ring on 😉

  8. Thank you for the video. You have a way of explaining things very well for us newbies. I cleaned my battery terminals earlier today, but i wish i saw this video first because i didn't even think to wear gloves or eye protection. Next time i will. PLEASE MAKE MORE VIDEOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. It was mighty cold the day I replaced the battery, kneeling in snow. It was a great blessing to know the wrench sizes before I started. Thanks also for info on those vent tubes. Good video and audio quality, sadly rare on YouTube.

  10. I have to do this in -20 deg and no garage

  11. My biggest complaint is that the audio is almost unintelligible once the guy gets into the job. Unfortunately, the only other video I saw here had even worse audio. I would highly suggest you watch how you remove and reinstall the venting system.

  12. When I took my battery out; there was water sitting under and around the battery. Anyone know why? I dried it all up before installing the new battery but idk where the water came from.

  13. Super. You answered all my questions. Cheers David Carlaw.

  14. hi, i got a Buick 2004 Buick Lesabre, its 250+K, should i bought it?

  15. Positive then negative when taking off negative then positive when inserting new battery

  16. I have a lasabre Buick 2002 should I get a special battery for it? Or should I get a standard every last auto motive battery

  17. Looking to buy a Lasabre. This helps know better what I am getting into. Thanks dude.

  18. Very helpful. Thank you

  19. Super presentation, sir! Clear video, trim editing, well lit, safe, concisely enunciated info for newbies, all needed tools identified!! Thank You so very, very much 🙂

  20. The most thorough/helpful video I have seen for this battery replacement (have a 2002 Buick Lesabre); You have a new subscriber sir!! Thank you for taking time to make and share this video with us my friend.

  21. You might want to tell your viewers about the radio code you can lose when taking the battery out.

  22. thanks for the video it helped out

  23. Outstanding video in every way!

  24. Just want to give a big Thank You for showing me how to do this myself and in the process save me some money! Well done sir!

  25. Did the radio lock after disconnecting the battery?

  26. excellent video best one for the "under the seat battery" for the Buick. My question who makes the best replacement and should you exceed 770 CCA. Is there a special name for this battery? The Dealer and Sears is way off on price.

  27. Great video, bought the Bonneville a few months ago, just never drove it, well the battery was dead, so I opened the hood, & well, I've never seen this before, no battery. Saw the red cover by the fuse cover, took that off, well that was no help. So though I can't believe it, I guess the battery is under the back seat, I wonder why?. Almost as bad of an idea as my model T, with the gas tank under the seat. Oh well, live I hope, & learn. Thanks for the video, it is a big help. I'd be looking for that thing for another year.

  28. Nice video,VERY INFORMATIVE,thank you!
