BATTERY CABLES MAINTENANCE (Contd)
Use caution when working with battery cables. Failure to comply
may result in injury to personnel and/or damage to equipment.
Remove all jewelry such as rings, identification tags, bracelets, etc.
If jewelry or disconnected battery ground cable contacts battery
positive post, a direct short can result. Failure to comply may result
in injury or death to personnel and/or damage to equipment.
When removing cables, disconnect the ground cable first. Do not
allow tools to come in contact with vehicle when disconnecting
cable clamps. A direct short can result, causing instant heating of
tools, tool damage, battery damage or battery explosion, and severe
injury to personnel.
Use caution when removing cables from adjacent terminals. Cables
may touch other terminals. Failure to comply may result in injury
to personnel or damage to equipment.
Tag all battery cables during removal to assist with installation.
Battery cables may be fastened to other cables and harnesses with
tiedown straps. Battery cables have a lettered plastic clip at each
end for identification. Reuse this clip with new cable.
