Battery Maintenance


To get the best service from a battery:

  • Keep it securely mounted.
  • Keep the top clean and dry.
  • Keep terminals and connections clean, tight, and coated with petroleum jelly or terminal grease.
  • Rinse off spilled electrolyte immediately with a solution of water and baking soda.
  • If the vehicle will not be used for an extended time, disconnect the battery leads and charge the battery every six weeks.

Inspecting Electrolyte Level *

A low level of electrolyte fl uid will cause the battery to discharge quickly.

Inspecting Electrolyte Level


Inspect the electrolyte level at least once a week. If it is low, remove the caps and add enough distilled water to bring the level between the upper and lower level (illustration).

Do not overfi ll.

Examine the specifi c gravity of the electrolyte with a hydrometer, especially during cold weather. If it is low, recharge the battery.

Battery Recharging

NOTE

  • Before performing maintenance or recharging the battery, turn off all accessories and stop the engine.
  • To disconnect the battery, remove the negative lead fi rst. Install it last when connecting the battery.
  • Be sure to remove the caps before recharging the battery.
  • (With i-stop system)  Do not quick-charge the battery.
  • If the battery quickly discharges because, for example, the lights were left on too long with the engine off, slow-charge it as required by battery size and charger capacity.
  • If the battery gradually discharges because of high electric load while the vehicle is being used, recharge it as required by battery size and charger capacity.
