CHECKING THE HIGH VOLTAGE BATTERY COOLANT LEVEL

CAUTION

Running the high voltage battery without coolant will cause serious high voltage battery damage.

CAUTION

If persistent coolant loss is noticed, seek qualified assistance immediately.

Check the high voltage battery coolant reservoir level at least every week. Check more frequently in high mileage or arduous conditions. Always check the level when the system is cold and the vehicle's electrical system is switched off.

To check the high voltage battery coolant level:

  1. Remove the relevant under-bonnet covers. See FLUID FILLER LOCATIONS and UNDER-BONNET COVERS REMOVAL.

  2. Check the high voltage battery coolant reservoir level. To achieve optimum benefit of the high voltage battery cooling system, keep the coolant system level at the MAX indicator mark on the expansion tank. Make sure the coolant level does not fall below the MIN indicator mark on the expansion tank.

NOTES

If the coolant level has dropped suddenly, or by a large amount, arrange for the vehicle to be examined by qualified personnel. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer as soon as possible.
