How do you replace the battery on my 2004 Accord?

Cars & Vehicles
Car Batteries

All auto parts stores will install it free of charge, assuming you can get it there. If you cant; make sure you buy the correct size replacement, then;

to remove: disconnect the negative (-) terminal, disconnect the positive (+), remove any bolts or straps that are holding it down and remove the battery. There will be something holding it in place, either a bar across the top, a strap, or a "wedge" that is bolted in to the battery tray

To install; attach any bar, strap, or bolt that is holding the battery. Remove the plastic terminal cap, connect the + terminal, then the - terminal. If you have an alarm, make sure you have your remote, it will start going off once the second terminal is connected, and your head will be right by the horn/siren. Make sure you never short a car battery (do not let anything metal contact both posts, and always disconnect the (-) terminal first and attach it last).

Wash your hands after handling the battery.
