Hello I will help you with your question,

The procedure to get to the battery terminals is here >click<

Check the charge and the condition of the battery terminals. You should have 12.6 volts for a fully charged battery.

Please let me know if you have further questions

Thank you

Mine is not a 3.5, I believe it is 2.64. And the engine control module is the large covered area on the right, viewing from the front of the vehicle.
The remote positive post is under the red box on the left of this area. I have removed the top (no tools needed) and see three connection areas on the left I assume are from the 36 volt battery array. I still see no way to remove anything else.

Saturn Vue 2008 Hybrid 4 cylinder, not 6 cylinder.

OK, better matched to what I have, thank you. Just one other thing, both articles say to remove the negative battery connection. Just where is that, as neither showed that point.
