Customer Question

I have a 2009 Saturn VUE--equipped with Onstar----the battery needs to be replaced. Can I do this myself or do I have to go to the dealer---any idea how much this might cost?
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: will you be sending me a link for the page?
JA: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?
Customer: the red light has been on for some time, I have not checked the battery
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes, I would like to try to fix it myself as the dealer said it could be $300 to have it done at the dealership
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: just that the red light has been on for some time---I'm not sure what else the mechanic should know

I really just need to know if I can purchase the battery for the onstar and replace it myself

Are you talking about the battery that starts the vehicle?

I have to leave work now, so I guess I won't get an answer and I have wasted $5.00

This does take time to work with an expert.
