How to Install Battery?
Selection and Installation of Battery
Select the battery you desire properly according to the vehicle from the lists given in our catalogue indicating characteristics of the batteries. Sizes, cold cranking current and capacity values are important selection criteria. Activate the dry charged batteries according to the method given above and, if required, charge them.
In case of flooded batteries stored, when the average daily temperature is less than 4oC, if the open circuit voltage is 12.50 V and less, then recharge it according to the method given above.
If the ambient temperature is high and the open circuit voltage is 12.40 or less, recharge it according to the method given above.
Mark the cables as +/- before you remove the old battery in order to connect the new battery correctly.
Measure the voltage value and direction of the battery to make sure it is correct; check the cable connections and battery stand carefully and clean them. Place the new battery and make the connections and tighten.
Firstly, connect the positive (+) cable. Secondly, connect the negative (-) earthed cable. Tighten carefully. As overtightening may damage the posts, be careful especially when you tighten the battery posts from sideways.
Cover the posts and cable ends by an anti-corrosive agent.
