The battery is located under the air filter container (left side of engine compartment when you face the car). You will need to remove a couple screws and also the clamp holding the air tube to the engine.

I've got a 2000, 300M. I went to change a tire and there is a huge nut right in the center of the rim. My car didn't come with any key. It doesn't look like any special key nut. Has anyone else been stranded with this? On the highway in Az. in July, it's only about 140 degrees in the sun. I could kill chrysler

There are two terminals located above the battery since the battery is located underneath the air filter.

jack up the front end, take off the front right wheel, remove screws from the access panel on the front of the wheel well, slide battery back, disconnect, replace

You only have to turn the front wheels all the one to one position. You do not have to take the front wheel off to remove the battery.

1999 Chrysler 300M suddenly totally dead... how do you use a jump starter ... where is the battery connections. I see one red, but when I ground the other cable to engine /frame... nothing happens... no current seems to flow from jump starter to the starter. Can you help?

yes Don--i have a 300M also- there is a large nut in the center of the wheel--you should have a key to remove it--it releases the hubcap when you remove it-- it is a small key that fits in the lugwrench -it is probably in your glove box--dont give up on chrysler - this is the first one i ever had and also the best car i ever had--enjoy it

i would bet that you didnt unscrew the nut thats in the center of the wheel -it has a small adaptor that fits into your lugwrench -- that one nut will drive you crazy unless you know its there----good luck to you

Just as it is with anything on this blessed car, it's nowhere easy to access! The tire must come off, then the access panel in the wheel well (not easy), and then you have to shave your arm hair off trying to wrangle the **** thing out. I absolutely loved this care until it started having problems!
