– Ensure that any electrical consumers (courtesy lights, etc.) are switched
off before disconnecting or recon-
necting the battery.
– When charging, stop the charger before connecting or disconnecting
– Do not place metal objects on the battery to avoid creating a short cir-
cuit between the terminals.
– Always wait at least one minute after the engine has been switched off
before disconnecting a battery.
– Make sure that you reconnect the battery terminals after refitting.
Connecting a battery charger
The battery charger must be com-
patible with a battery with nominal
voltage of 12 volts.
Do not disconnect the battery when the
engine is running. Follow the instruc-
tions given by the manufacturer of

it does, wash the affected area with
plenty of cold water. If necessary,
consult a doctor.
Ensure that naked flames, red hot
objects and sparks do not come into
contact with the battery as there is a
risk of explosion.
