Hah I had the same problem when I first got the riv. I first tried the hood. Then searched all through the trunk. Finally i popped up the back seat about 40 minutes later and found it. wink

Hi,

Great forum. Just got me 95 Riv. OK, so it's in the rear seat. How do you get to it?

Thanks,

ok

Step ONE: pop hood

Step TWO: realize there is NO battery there

Step THREE: pull up on the back seat at the front edge Pretty firmly it will take some force

Step FOUR: THERE LIES THE TROUBLED BATTERY

Help! My daughters Rivera is dead in my driveway. She had it towed to my house for repair??? I'm new to Riveras and cant find the battery. I think it's a 95 or 96 with a3.8 L Supercharged six. I'm not new to mechanics, I have a 4.OL Jeep that I have replaced both front and rear axels, transmission and transfer case etc.and a Corvette that I do my own work on. If I can charge the battery I'll have a chance to try and trouble shoot the problem with your help.

Nate!! thanks, I found it!!!
She tells me It died on the freeway? some help huh, I'm giving it a 1/2 hour of so to charge up, then I'll give it a try. I'll get more specifics later this evening or tomorrow around this time. I'll check spark and fuel tomorrow. I can hear the fuel pump(very noisy) pressure up then stop. Where is the OBD II connector located?

If it is a 96 it is under the drivers dash about half way to the firewall.

You are welcome. If it died on the freeway and the battery is dead then I'd look at the alternator.

I'd like to thank everyone who responded, but she done gone and did it this time. bonk
I put a 1/2" drive ratchet with a 2 foot extention on the crank bolt and couldn't turn it over. nono
Looks like she siezed it up.
Whats the market for a 95 in good condition inside and out., or would a new engine be more reasonable?

Used decent condition should be around $500-$600, check car-part.com for localized listings...

Thanks Derek, I guess it would be worth more in parts, if you'd want to sit on it for a few months?

Sorry, I was talking about a used engine should cost you $500-$600, not that's what the car was worth. I think it's worth putting an engine in, if it's in nice enough shape...

Yep. *if you shop for it* used engines are plentiful for the 3800. If you are in a major metro area you just *might* find a place to put it in for you and everything...

One of the heavy modders around here could tell you how much is involved to "improve on the original", possibly just the matching PCM, but right now there is an almost complete Series II in the For Sale thread...

Regardless, good luck with everything...

PostSubject: Battery Relocation   Wed May 14, 2014 7:55 pm

Anyone ever relocate the battery in their Riv to trunk? The battery under the backseat is huge PITA when you have a little one in a car seat. I mod a lot and disconnect battery frequently. Curious to see build pictures. Thanks.

I haven't, but I bet under the carpet by the antenna would be a near perfect spot for one.

I wonder where the best ground location would be back there. Planning to do a big 3 upgrade eventually can always plan to run it to the rear and test some locations. Just looking to see if anyone has done successfully!

There are a few existing chassis grounds by the antenna, but you should be fine running a ground wire back (it's under the right side of the back seat about 1ft away from the battery IIRC). I don't see any harm in running some nice 0 gauge wire back to the factory location, but I'm not an expert and I don't do this for a living.
