A freshly manufactured lead-acid car battery is 100% charged, but sitting on the retail shelf for months it gradually self-discharges.
Bring a wrench or a combination of sockets and a ratchet for bolts that fasten cables to battery terminals and hold the battery clamp.
Turn off the ignition switch, all electrical switches and breakers and electronic and electrical accessories and appliances in the car. Disconnect the grounded negative (-) black cable first from the old battery in your car because this will minimize the possibility of shorting the battery when you remove the other cables.
Thoroughly wash and clean the old battery and tray (case or box) with warm water and brush to minimize problems from acid or corrosion. Clean the cable terminals with a wire brush and baking soda and water if they're corroded or dirty.
Connect the positive (+) red cable to the positive (+) terminal, tighten the hold-down bracket. Connect the negative (-) black cable to the negative (-) terminal and tighten its hold-down bracket as well.


When disconnecting the car battery you will lose the radio station presets, emissions computer settings, or radio security codes (some vehicle manufacturers - as an anti-theft measure - disable the radio if the power is cut until a special security code is entered). Car batteries contain lead, acid, and plastic, and are dangerous to both you and the environment if disposed of incorrectly.

If you don't have a charger or time, just installing the battery and driving away is also acceptable.

When you buy a new car battery many shops will even pay you in exchange for your dead car battery. You can buy such a car memory keeper that plugs into your 12V cigarette lighter (with or without a 9V battery) at electronics and auto stores for $10.
The electrolyte, especially sulfuric acid, can be neutralized, repurposed, or converted into sodium sulfate used in fertilizers or dyes.
