DESCRIPTION

The battery is mounted in a molded plastic tray (Fig. 4) located in the left front corner of the engine compartment. The battery tray is secured on the inboard side with screws to a stamped steel battery tray support located on the left side of the radiator, on the outboard side with screws to the front extension of the left front wheelhouse inner panel and at the front to the front closure panel on the left side of the radiator yoke. The battery tray support is secured at the front with screws to the left side of the radiator yoke, and at the rear with a screw to the front extension of the left front wheelhouse inner panel.

A hole in the bottom of the battery tray is fitted with a battery temperature sensor. Refer to Battery Temperature Sensor in the index of this service manual for the location of more information on the battery temperature sensor. The battery tray also includes two stanchions that are molded into the rear of the tray, which support the forward end of the Power Distribution Center (PDC).

OPERATION

The battery tray provides a mounting location and support for the vehicle battery. The battery tray also provides anchor points for the battery hold down hardware. The battery tray and the battery hold down hardware combine to secure and stabilize the battery in the engine compartment, which prevents battery movement during vehicle operation. Unrestrained battery movement during vehicle operation can result in damage to the vehicle, the battery or both.
