Post Replacement Battery?

Does anyone know where to get a replacement battery other than the dealership? I have checked Autozone and Advance Auto Parts, but they don't carry it yet. I live in Ohio and was wondering if anyone had a suggestions? Thanks for your time.

Wow it went dead already?

I just searched Autozone site and not available. I also checked out the Optima site and there is NONE showing also for the 2004 GTO. Looks like the stealerships have us over a barrel on this one. I'll continue the search. Let us know what you find out and how much the stealership wants for a replacement battery. Good luck.

Yeah it is dead already. I didn't shut the door all the way and then put a car cover on it. Therefore, everytime the wind blew it kicked on the dome light. Dead as a door nail the next time I went to drive it.

As for the stearlership, they are wanting $98 for one. Maybe, that isn't so bad. I will keep you updated if anything bad happens. Thanks for the reply orange!

Have you tried recharging it? There may still be life in those cells.

u may need to use a high current charger to get the battery to accept power as intended. often a cheap 10-20 amp charger wont get the battery over the intial hump( for lack of a better explaination) and many ppl write them off as unchargable

Hey guys thanks for the suggestions, but I have recharged it once. But the darn thing died on me again from sitting in the winter. I have checked the battery and it was dry. So I put some new fluid in it, but it still didn't take a charge. Unfortunately, I think this one is cashed. Thanks again for all your guys help!

Well, funny story (I guess). The fuel pump went out on my other car this morning, therefore I had to go and get a battery at the dealership. It really wasn't that bad. The total was around $101 for the battery. It installed in a snap. Man I love rear wheel drive cars (there is actually room to work on them.) So overall, it wasn't that bad. Dealership had the battery in stock, it was an easy install. I really can't complain. Thanks again for all your guys help!

These batteries don't last that long...the 04s should be changed. You might have to clean up a little corrosion.

Replacement Battery for '05 GTO

To clarify some alternatives to the Optima or the AC Delco stock part, you can get a Duralast Gold "35-DLG" from Autozone, $90 (Item #115788). It has an 8 year pro-rated warranty and a 36-month free replacement. It fits well enough, a little tight by the fuse box, and have to squeeze it in to get the holding bracket back on the bottom of the battery. I just installed on my '05.

Yep, in fact it is what I will go with when mine craps out. 4+ years and 49K miles on the original battery. I have a feeling it is living on borrowed time.
