Mazda 2: Battery Runs Out

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.

Do not allow the
positive ( ) terminal to contact any other metal object that could cause sparks: 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. When working near a battery, do not allow metal tools to contact the positive ( ) or negative (
) terminal of the
battery.

Keep all
fl ames, including cigarettes, and sparks away from open battery cells: 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.

Do not jump-start a frozen battery or one with a low fl uid level: Jump-starting a frozen battery or one with a low fl uid level is dangerous. It may rupture or explode, causing serious injury.

Connect the negative lead to a good ground point away from the battery: Connecting the end of the second jumper lead 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 leads away from parts that will be moving: Connecting a jumper lead near or to moving parts (cooling fans, belts) is dangerous.

The lead 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).
