Did you see the spots under the hood near the battery? You can also use those.

I learned that after letting my car sit for 3 weeks, still had a little juice left to call onstar though ;)

Check and read pages 5-44 and 5-45 and 5-46 and 5-47 of your glove box manual.

The positive thats by the fuse box and for the negative I use the chassis ground near the battery. Could use an engine piece like the alternator bracket for ground too.

Plug it into the cigarette lighter outlet and the wall ! No modifications to screw with, especially at 49*

and there's a remote positive terminal to use for jumping, so you don't connect directly to the battery itself...

So Lew where have you been and where would you hook up the battery tender?
