WARNING
Never

Only
use the
connec-
tions
in
the
engine
compartment.
Do
not
touch
the
non-insulated
parts
of
the
terminal
clamps.
The

must
also
not
come
into
contact
with
vehicle
components
that
conduct
electricity
when

is
connected

the
positive
vehicle
battery
terminal.
This

be
opened.
Keep
ignition
sources
(such
as
open
flames,
burning
cigarettes,
etc.)
away
from
the vehi-
cle
batteries
to
reduce
the
risk
of
an
explo-
sion.
Route
the
jump
start
cables
so
they
cannot
get
caught
in
the
moving
parts
in
the
other
vehicle's
engine
compartment.
