BATTERY CARE

WARNING

If battery electrolyte comes into contact with your eyes, skin, or clothes, you should remove the affected clothing and flush the skin/eyes with large amounts of clean water. Seek medical assistance immediately.

WARNING

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

WARNING

The cell plugs and 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, resulting in an explosion.

WARNING

Do not expose the battery to a naked 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

Remove all metal jewelery before working on, or near, the battery, and never allow metal objects or vehicle components to come into contact with the battery terminals. Metal objects can cause sparks, and/or short circuits, resulting in an explosion.

WARNING

Do not allow the battery posts or terminals to come into contact with your skin. They contain lead and lead compounds which are toxic. Always wash your hands thoroughly after handling the battery.

Your vehicle is fitted 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.
