BATTERIEWARTUNG

WARNING

If swallowed, battery electrolyte can be fatal. Seek medical assistance immediately.

WARNING

Do not allow battery fluid to come into contact with skin, eyes, or clothes. Battery fluid is both toxic and corrosive, which can result in severe injuries. If battery electrolyte comes into contact with skin, eyes or clothes, remove the affected clothing. Flush the skin or eyes with plenty of water. Seek medical assistance immediately. Failure to do so may result in serious injury.

WARNING

Do not connect any 12V equipment directly to the battery terminals. Doing so may cause a spark, which can result in an explosion. A spark or an explosion may cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

The cell plugs and vent pipe must be in place at all times when the battery is connected to the vehicle. Make sure that the vent pipe is clear of obstructions and not kinked. Failure to do so may cause a pressure build-up in the battery, potentially resulting in an explosion. An explosion may cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not expose the battery to an open flame or spark, as the battery produces explosive, flammable gas. An open flame or sparks may cause a fire or explosion, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

WARNING

Never jump start (boost), charge, or try to start a vehicle with a frozen battery. Doing so may result in an explosion. An explosion may cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

Remove all metal jewellery before working on, or near, the battery. Never allow metal objects or vehicle components to come into contact with the battery terminals. Metal objects can cause sparks or short circuits, potentially resulting in an explosion. An explosion may cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not allow the battery posts or terminals to come into contact with skin. The posts and terminals contain lead and lead compounds, which are toxic. Always wash hands thoroughly after handling the battery. Excessive exposure to lead may cause long-term illness.

CAUTION

Do not allow battery electrolyte to come into contact with fabrics or painted surfaces. If battery electrolyte comes into contact with any surface, the surface should be washed down immediately with plenty of clean water. Failure to do so may result in damage to the affected surface.

An Absorbed Glass Matt (AGM) battery is fitted to the vehicle.

CAUTION

AGM batteries are sealed for life and require no maintenance. Do not attempt to open or remove the top from an AGM battery. Doing so can cause damage to the battery.
