BATTERY CARE

WARNING

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

WARNING

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

WARNING

Do not connect any 12-volt equipment directly to the battery terminals. Doing so may cause a spark, which can result in an explosion.

WARNING

The vent pipe must be in place at all times when the battery is connected to the vehicle. Make sure 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.

WARNING

Do not expose the battery to an open flame or spark as the battery produces explosive, flammable gas.

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.

CAUTION

Do not allow battery fluid to come into contact with fabrics or painted surfaces. If battery fluid comes into contact with any surface, the surface should be washed down immediately with plenty of clean water.

This vehicle is fitted with an Absorbed Glass Matt (AGM) battery.

NOTES

AGM batteries are sealed for life and require no maintenance.

CAUTION

Do not attempt to open or remove the top from an AGM battery.
