Hi , I can help you with this. First do this 12v battery dis connect procedure ....

Some systems store data in memory that is lost when the battery is disconnected. Do the following steps before disconnecting the battery.

  1. Make sure you have the anti-theft code(s) for the audio and/or the navigation system (if equipped).

  2. If you are replacing the audio unit, write down the audio presets (AM and FM), and the XM audio presets (if equipped), because the audio unit does not retain the presets after the battery is disconnected.

  3. Make sure the ignition switch is in LOCK (0).

  4. Disconnect and isolate the negative cable from the battery.

    NOTE: Always disconnect the negative cable from the battery first.

  5. Disconnect the positive cable from the battery.

Remove the rear seat back, there are 2 10mm bolts between the cushions.
you will then see an access cover with an arrow . Remove the 2 bolts.
Remove the access cover. Pull the plastic sleeve off the disconnect switch and flip the switch to the off position. Reinstall the sleeve. Wait 5 or more minutes for capacitors to discharge
