Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Heading North for the summer. Need to disconnect the battery. I know the battery is located below the left headlight. Is their an easier way to disconnect without having to get to the battery? I know there is a charging port in the engine compartment.

Why disconnect the battery? You could easily connect a trickle charger to maintain battery, or install a knife type positive disconnect switch in the engine compartment, which is what I did with a classic car I used to winter store.

Can you attach a trickle charger to the jumper port located in the engine compartment? Or can I disconnect the battery from the port area?

This type of charger can have clamps to connect at the jump post, or it may have a cigarette lighter plug. I'm glad you are pursuing this avenue, rather than disconnecting the battery, as the radio for one will need to be coded to resume function each time power is restored. New model cars like the sebring are loaded with electronics that require the battery to maintain learned settings, like the transmission for example. These will restore to original when the battery is disconnected. BTW, why the concern about drain while simply sitting? The charge will hold unless battery is on the way out. Or have someone start it monthly while you are away, just sayin'.
