2006 Cadillac DTS: Bought the vehicle used and have had it for 2 years

Customer Question

I own a 2006 Cadillac DTS and need to replace the battery. How do I accomplish that task for this vehicle? Bought the vehicle used and have had it for 2 years, it has 92K miles and after having to get hotshots twice in the past year I decided to purchase a new battery!
