A.
Keep lighted cigarettes and all other flames or sparks away from the battery.

B.
Wear eye protection when charging or working near a battery. Always provide ventilation when working in an enclosed space.

When lifting a plastic-cased battery, excessive pressure may cause leakage of acid resulting in possible personal injury. To avoid this, lift in a battery carrier or by holding opposite corners.

Never attempt to change the battery when the battery cables are connected.

The electrical ignition system works with high voltage.

Never touch these components with the engine running or the ignition switched on.


C.
Keep batteries out of the reach of children because batteries contain highly corrosive SULFURIC ACID. Do not allow battery acid to contact your skin, eyes, clothing or paint finish.

D.
If any electrolyte gets into your eyes, flush your eyes with clean water for at least 15 minutes and get immediate medical attention. If possible, continue to apply water with a sponge or cloth until medical attention is received.
If electrolyte gets on your skin, thoroughly wash the contacted area. If you feel a pain or a burning sensation, get medical attention immediately.

E.
Always read the following instructions carefully when handling a battery.

F.
Hydrogen, a highly combustible gas, is in battery cells at all times, and may explode if ignited.

G.
An improperly disposed battery can be harmful to the environment and human health.
Always conform to local regulations for battery disposal.

Handling and Storing Battery

Battery Itself

Batteries should be stored in cool, dry (27°C / 80.6°F) places and out of direct sunlight.

MF batteries are tightly sealed to prevent acid leakage.

However, tilting the battery to an angle of 45º or over may cause acid leakage through the vents on the sides. Therefore, store batteries in the upright position. Prevent placing any aqueous or solid (i.e. conductors) bodies on top of the battery.

It is extremely dangerous to use tools, such as hammers, on the battery terminals when connecting cables to the mounted battery.

Battery on Vehicle

When storing the vehicle for a long period of time, make sure to remove the memory fuse at the junction box to prevent natural discharging.

If the vehicle has been stored for a long time with the battery fuses installed, run the engine to charge the battery within 1 month in storage.

Also, even if the battery fuse has been removed, run the engine to charge the battery within 3 months in storage.


  

After reconnecting or recharging a discharged battery, the ESP OFF indicator may illuminate.

In this case, turn the handle half way to the left and right whilst the ignition switch is in the ON position.

Then, restart the engine after ignition OFF.

The ESP OFF indicator may turn OFF.

If the ESP OFF indicator does not turn OFF, have the system checked refering to DTC. (Refer to the BR group.)
