Well my battery is dead, one of my friends left a light on in the car after he grabbed some stuff from my car.

I talked to my father about it and he said i should ge the battery charged, sounds reasonable enough. My question to you all is, is there any special preperations i need to do to remove the battery? and what will be involved when i reconnect it besides from all my radio presets ?

make sure you do it right! how old is the battery? I'd just replace it if it's older. I replaced mine and couldn't have been happier after doing so

Nope, no different than any other car. Just take off the pos and neg leads and yank it out. Personally I would see a dead battery as an oppurtunity to replace it with a better one. I just replace mine with an Optima gel-cel, and it really is amazing the difference. It's my second Optima, and am convinced they are the only battery to have(except maybe an odyssey)
