What to do in an emergency
WARNING - Battery
Jump starting can be dangerous if
done incorrectly. Therefore, to avoid
harm to yourself or damage to your
vehicle or battery, follow the jump
starting procedures. If in doubt, we
strongly recommend that you have a
technician or towing service jump
start your vehicle.
Keep all flames or sparks
away from the battery. The
battery produces hydrogen
gas which may explode if
exposed to flame or sparks.
If these instructions are not fol-
lowed exactly, serious personal
injury and damage to the vehi-
cle may occur! If you are not
sure how to follow this proce-
dure, seek qualified assis-
tance. Automobile batteries
contain sulfuric acid. This is
poisonous and highly corro-
sive. When jump starting, wear
protective glasses and be care-
ful not to get acid on yourself,
your clothing or on the car.
Use only a 12-volt jumper sys-
tem. You can damage a 12-volt
starting motor, ignition system,
Connect cables in numerical order
and disconnect in reverse order.
beyond repair by use of a 24-volt
power supply (either two 12-volt
batteries in series or a 24-volt
motor generator set).
Do not attempt to jump start
the vehicle if the discharged
battery is frozen or if the elec-
trolyte level is low; the battery
may rupture or explode.
