Traverse battery location

My company is starting the process to order me a 2009 Traverse (pkg unknown) ... but since I have a ton of two-way radio and electronic gear to move in, I'm thinking of putting in a battery isolator. Obviously, I don't have the car yet so I'm just pre-planning placement of equipment.

Is the battery in the same place as the Acadia, behind the passenger seat?

Thanks!

Re: Traverse battery location

I just bought a Traverse LT1 on 3/21/09. I was wondering myself where the battery is. Do you access from underneath? Or from the floor? Interesting placement. Thanks!

Re: Traverse battery location

Access the battery through the passenger compartment by lifting the floor mat on the passenger side rear, you Will see an access panel with a torx screw, remove screw wiggle cover out and you have battery access.

GM really don't want to disclose this information in the owner's manual.

Re: Traverse battery location

does it have some sort of venting system for gasses from the battery?

Is that needed? The batteries in Buick LeSabres and Pontiac Bonnevilles have been under the back seat (2000-2005) so I would think if there was a problem, someone would have found out by now.

09enclave has hit on it!!! The REAL reason why Tiger Wood's golf game has never recovered - gases from the battery in the LeSabre!!!

Re: Traverse battery location

OK, allow me ask the obvious dumb question: :P
Why on earth is the battery there and not in the engine compartment, where God meant it to be?
And how does that affect the logistics of jump-starting said battery? (or using it to jumpstart another car)
I mean, are there terminals accessible under the hood as usual, or do you have to get the can opener out to get to it as DanTheChevyMan described in his earlier post
