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...
