12 V battery

Procedure for starting the engine using another 
battery or charging a discharged battery.

General points

Lead-acid starter batteries

Versions equipped with Stop & Start are 
fitted with a 12 V lead-acid battery of 
specific technology and specification.
Its replacement should be carried 
out only by a PEUGEOT dealer or a 
qualified workshop.

If you have an electronic or automatic 
gearbox, never try to start the engine by 
pushing the vehicle.

Batteries contain harmful substances 
such as sulphuric acid and lead.
They must be disposed of in 
accordance with regulations and must 
not, in any circumstances, be discarded 
with household waste.
Take used remote control batteries and 
vehicle batteries to a special collection 
point.

Protect your eyes and face before 
handling the battery.
All operations on the battery must be 
carried out in a well ventilated area and 
away from naked flames and sources 
of sparks, so as to avoid the risk of 
explosion or fire.
Wash your hands afterwards.

Some functions, including Stop & Start, 
are not available if the battery is not 
sufficiently charged.

Starting using another 
battery

When your vehicle's battery is discharged, the 
engine can be started using a slave battery 
(external or on another vehicle) and jump lead 
cables or a battery booster.

Never try to start the engine by 
connecting a battery charger.
Never use a 24 V or higher battery 
booster.
First check that the slave battery has a 
nominal voltage of 12 V and a capacity 
at least equal to that of the discharged 
battery.
The two vehicles must not be in contact 
with each other.
Switch off the electrical consumers on 
both vehicles (audio system, wipers, 
lighting, ...).
Ensure that the jump lead cables do 
not pass close to moving parts of the 
engine (cooling fan, belts, ...).
Do not disconnect the (+) terminal when 
the engine is running.

The battery is located under the bonnet.
To gain access to it:
F  open the bonnet using the interior release 

lever, then the exterior safety catch,

F  secure the bonnet stay,
F  lift the plastic cover on the (+) terminal.

Access to the battery

The (-) battery terminal is not 
accessible.
A remote earth point is located on the 
front left-hand wheel arch.

F  Raise the plastic cover on the (+) terminal, 

if your vehicle has one.

F  Connect the red cable to the positive 

terminal (+) of the flat battery A (at 
the metal elbow) then to the positive 
terminal (+) of the slave battery B or the 
booster.

F  Connect one end of the green or black 

cable to the negative terminal (-) of the 
slave battery B or the booster (or earth 
point on the other vehicle).

F  Connect the other end of the green or black 

cable to the earth point C on the broken 
down vehicle.

F  Start the engine of the vehicle with the 

good battery and leave it running for a 
few minutes.

F  Operate the starter on the broken down 

vehicle and let the engine run.

If the engine does not start straight away, 
switch off the ignition and wait a few moments 
before trying again.

F  Wait until the engine returns to idle then 

disconnect the jump lead cables in the 
reverse order.

F  Refit the plastic cover to the (+) terminal, if 

your vehicle has one.

F  Allow the engine to run for at least 

30 minutes, by driving or with the vehicle 
stationary, so that the battery reaches an 
adequate state of charge.

Charging the battery using 
a battery charger

For optimum service life of the battery, it is 
essential to maintain an adequate state of 
charge.
In some circumstances it may be necessary to 
charge the battery:

if you use your vehicle essentially for short 
journeys,

if the vehicle is to be taken off the road for 
several weeks.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified 
workshop.

Follow the instructions for use provided 
by the manufacturer of the charger.
Never reverse polarities.

It is not necessary to disconnect the 
battery.

F  Switch off the ignition.
F  Switch off all electrical consumers (audio 

system, lighting, wipers, ...).

F  Switch off the charger B before connecting 

the cables to the battery, so as to avoid any 
dangerous sparks.

F  Ensure that the charger cables are in good 

condition.

F  Raise the plastic cover, if your vehicle has 

one, on the (+) terminal.

F  Connect the charger B cables as follows:

-  the positive (+) red cable to the (+)

point C on the vehicle.

F  At the end of the charging operation, switch 

off the charger B before disconnecting the 
cables from the battery A.

Disconnecting the battery

In order to maintain an adequate state 
of charge for starting the engine, it is 
recommended that the battery be disconnected 
if the vehicle is taken out of service for a long 
period.
Wait 2 minutes after switching off the ignition 
before disconnecting the battery:
F  close all openings (doors, boot, windows, 

roof),
