Many owners of the Oldsmobile Aurora have a hard time finding the vehicle's battery. Unlike in most other vehicles, the Aurora's battery is located beneath the rear-seat cushion. Other than removing the rear-seat cushion, replacing the battery in your Aurora is not much different than in any other vehicle. The process is the same for all models (1995 to 2003).

Tools Used[edit]

Socket wrench
AC Delco replacement battery (preferred)

Change the Battery[edit]

  • Park the Aurora on level ground and turn the engine off. Make sure your replacement battery is suitable for the year and model of your Aurora.
  • Lift up on the rear-seat cushion bottom to release the clips, and then pull the seat towards the front of the vehicle to remove.
  • Remove the battery access cover. Remove the bolts securing the battery mounting bracket.
  • Loosen the locking nut for the positive (+) and negative (-) battery terminals. Lift the cables from the terminals and remove the battery.
  • Install the new battery. Connect the red cable to the positive (+) terminal and connect the black cable to the negative (-) terminal.
  • Replace the mounting bracket and tighten the screws. Replace the battery access cover and the rear-seat cushion.

Tips & Warnings[edit]

  • General Motors recommends AC Delco replacement batteries for best results.
  • Do not cross-connect the battery cables. Use the cable colors as a guide when connecting the battery cables.
