Have a 2006 STS-V with a dead battery, i want to charge it but im not all that sure how to do that without damaging something. Could someone please help ! Not sure where or if it has a remote negative that im supposed to use or if i just hook up to the battery.

I just charge mine off the battery its self. I run a battery tender on my cars and boat right of the battery. To be safe you can disconnect the negative on it. But DO NOT close the hood you may not be able to get back in the car with the battery disconnected.
