BATTERY CARE

WARNING

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

WARNING

If battery electrolyte comes into contact with eyes, skin, or clothes, flush the skin and eyes with large amounts of clean water. Remove the affected clothing. Seek medical assistance immediately. Failing 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, resulting in serious injury or death.

WARNING

Never jump start (boost), charge, or try to start a vehicle with a frozen battery. Doing so can result in an explosion.

WARNING

To prevent the chance of an electric shock, remove all metal jewelry 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. A spark or an explosion may cause serious injury or death.

WARNING

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

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. Failing to do so may result in damage to the affected surfaces.

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

CAUTION

AGM batteries are sealed for life and require no maintenance. To prevent damage to an AGM battery, do not attempt to open or remove the top from a battery.
