Battery Charging (Sealed Battery)
On a sealed battery, the sealing strip cannot be removed. Use a voltmeter or multimeter to
measure DC voltage. A fully charged battery will register 12.8 V or higher. If the voltage is
less than 12.8 volts, recharge the battery.
The battery may be recharged without removing
it from the vehicle. Attach cables in the following
1. Attach the positive (+) cable clamp to the
solenoid lead (directly wired to the battery).
2. Attach the negative (-) cable clamp to the
negative (-) battery terminal.
Improperly connecting or disconnecting battery cables can result in an explosion and cause serious
injury or death. When removing battery cables, always disconnect the negative (black) cable first.
When installing battery cables, always connect the negative (black) cable last.
