The battery is under the rear seat cushion, just give a sharp pull up on each side of the cushion and it sould come up. Take the key out of the ignition. Remove the vent tube connected to the battery. Using a 8mm wrench remove the black negative black cable from the battery. Then remove the red positive cable. On the rear back of the battery there is a13mm bolt to remove it you will need a 13mm socket a long extension and ratchet. remove the bolt then the plate under the bolt, move the vent tubes out of the way. Pull up on the battery and remove it. (the battery is big and heavy. Install new battery if cable ends are corroded clean with baking soda mixed with water or coke wrinse off good with water. Make sure you connect the red positive cable first. make sure cable bolts are TIGHT. Before starting turn ignition on for 10 seconds then off do this 3 times to reset the engine computer. this should do it.

    Ms. Judy, Please make sure you reconnect the vent tubes to the new battery. The fumes from a charging battery are dangerous. Sorry I forgot this info. Bluebirdmate

Where is egr valve located on 2006 Cadillac DTS

I'm not familiar with your vehicle (I'm in the UK). However, the EGR valve is usually connect to the air intake.

Look for a 'unit' that is connected to the air intake via a tube.
