Video Description

Where is the battery located in a Renault Vel Satis?

The video above shows you how to replace the battery in your 2002 Renault Vel Satis. We recommend changing the battery in Renaults every 4 years. Although some batteries last much longer, most batteries begin breaking down chemically after four years, so you could experience dimmer headlights and other negative effects before you have a dead battery in your Vel Satis that you need to replace.

The battery location in a Renault Vel Satis can typically be found in the engine bay, but may be in the trunk, fender or inside of the vehicle. You may need to remove the air filter housing, a plastic engine cover or parts of the cowl to find the battery in your Vel Satis. See exactly where the battery is located in your 2002 Renault Vel Satis.

Replacing the battery in your Vel Satis involves removing the terminals. When you reconnect the terminals, your radio presets are likely to be cleared out. In some Vel Satiss, you may need to re-enter a security code to get your radio to work again. Check for this code in your owners manual - it will usually be either a sticker or small card in the booklet. If you can't find it, call Renault and they will give you the code for free. In many Renaults, the transmission "learns" how you drive over time and makes adjustments, so you may experience altered driving dynamics as your car re-learns your driving style after changing the battery.
