JUMP STARTING A DEAD BATTERY

Print

Whenever a vehicle must be jump started, precautions must be followed in order to prevent the possibility of personal injury. Remember that batteries contain a small amount of explosive hydrogen gas which is a byproduct of battery charging. Sparks should always be avoided when working around batteries, especially when attaching jumper cables. To minimize the possibility of accidental sparks, follow the procedure carefully.


CAUTION
NEVER hook the batteries up in a series circuit or the entire electrical system will go up in smoke, especially the starter!
