Help! Disconnect power in Gen 2 Compass

I have a 2018 Compass Trailhawk with Stop/start. I am needing to take the steering wheel off, but after disconnecting the battery (both terminals) the Jeep still has power. What am I missing?

Help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

You removed terminals for both batteries?

I was looking for the second battery and couldn't find one.


I got it now.

But I am just blind! Didn't notice it in front of the main battery, lol!

You can damage the clock spring if you are not careful removing the steering wheel.
