Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

i need to know is that did you charge the battery at the battery location under the drivers seat or at the emergency lugs under the hood?

do the interior lights come on in the car when the doors are opened? please let me know thanks

ok i need you to gain access under the seat to charge the battery!! you will need a xzn 10 socket to take the front screws off to swint the seat back to gain access to the battery . do you hae the triple square socket?
