1. Is the negative post grounded?


2. Instructions say 'Connect the negative charger clip to a good metal engine ground away from the battery. Do not connect to sheet metal body parts.' Where should I connect this to given the engine location?/fckeditor/editor/images/smiley/MWPX/thanks.gif

psycho,


Batteries can sometimes produce explosive fumes that can be ignited by a spark. It is a rare occurance, but possible. That is why instructions for jumper cables have you make the last attachment away from the battery - to avoid making a spark close to the battery. Another way to accomplish the same thing when using a charger would be to connect it direct to the battery terminals and make sure the charger power is off before attaching or detaching it.


hope that helps, Dave
