If Trouble Arises
Flat Tire
WARNING
Do not drive with any tires that have
incorrect air pressure:
Driving on tires with incorrect air
pressure is dangerous. Tires with
incorrect pressure could affect
handling and result in an accident.
When you check the regular tires' air
pressure, check the spare tire, too.
NOTE
To prevent the jack and tool from
rattling, store them properly.

Jump-Starting
Jump-Starting
Jump-starting is dangerous if done incorrectly. So follow the procedure carefully. If
you feel unsure about jump-starting, we strongly recommend that you have a
competent service technician do the work.
WARNING
Follow These Precautions Carefully:
To ensure safe and correct handling of the battery, read the following precautions
carefully before using the battery or inspecting it.
Keep flames and sparks away from open battery cells and do not allow
metal tools to contact the positive (+) or negative (-) terminal of the battery when
working near a battery. Do not allow the positive (+) terminal to contact the
vehicle body:
Flames and sparks near open battery cells are dangerous. Hydrogen gas, produced
during normal battery operation, could ignite and cause the battery to explode. An
exploding battery can cause serious burns and injuries. Keep all flames including
cigarettes and sparks away from open battery cells.
Keep all flames and sparks away from open battery cells because hydrogen
gas is produced from open battery cells while charging the battery or adding
battery fluid:
Flames and sparks near open battery cells are dangerous. Hydrogen gas, produced
during normal battery operation, could ignite and cause the battery to explode. An
exploding battery can cause serious burns and injuries. Keep all flames including
cigarettes and sparks away from open battery cells.
Do not jump-start a frozen battery or one with a low fluid level:
Jump-starting a frozen battery or one with a low fluid level is dangerous. It may
rupture or explode, causing serious injury.
7-17
If Trouble Arises
Battery Runs Out
Connect the negative cable to a good ground point away from the battery:
Connecting the end of the second jumper cable to the negative (-) terminal of the
discharged battery is dangerous.
A spark could cause the gas around the battery to explode and injure someone.
Route the jumper cables away from parts that will be moving:
Connecting a jumper cable near or to moving parts (cooling fans, belts) is
dangerous. The cable could get caught when the engine starts and cause serious
injury.
CAUTION
Use only a 12 V booster system. You can damage a 12 V starter, ignition system, and
other electrical parts beyond repair with a 24 V power supply (two 12 V batteries in
series or a 24 V motor generator set).
1. Move the booster vehicle so that its battery is as close as possible to your
vehicle's battery.
2. Make sure that the power such as for the headlights and air conditioner is turned
off.
3. Remove the battery cover.
4. Turn off the booster vehicle's engine and connect the jumper cables in the
following order.
Make sure that the jumper cables are securely connected so that they do not
disconnect due to engine vibrations.

5. Start the booster vehicle's engine and rev the engine.
6. Start the engine of your vehicle. Run the engines for about 3 minutes to
temporarily charge the battery of your vehicle.
7. Disconnect the jumper cables in the reverse order of their connection.
8. Install the battery cover.
