I have a Ford Transit Connect XLT with the 2.5 liter motor.

Customer Question
I have a Ford...

I have a Ford Transit Connect XLT with the 2.5 liter motor. The battery is dead. There is a battery under the hood but the online information says it is under the driver's seat. Please advise.

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

I have changed batteries and the battery in vehicle was tested bad yesterday. I got it home and jumped it from a starter function on my charger. The problem is with the difference on location between what I see under the hood and what the tutorials say about it being under the seat.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Transit Connect?

2015

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Transit Connect yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have bought a battery and looked at the hookup. There seems to be no easy way to deal with the negative terminal. It bolts to a post in the firewall that is easy to get to by the post comes loose with the nut. So, I have to go the hard way. Just wanted to check to see if there was easier way I don't see so I looked online and the first thing I say was that the battery was under the driver's seat, But, I see one under the hood with terminal cables and corrosion-the full monty.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

This is a start.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
seems obvious enough though cramped and difficult. Might help to see how to deal with that. I would like to the see the procedure in case there is something I missed.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
If it is a matter of struggling with the installation I can do that. It is cramped but it doesn't appear fundamentally different from other batteries l have changed.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
