BATTERY: troubleshooting 


To avoid all risk of sparks:

–  Ensure that any consumers (cour-

tesy lights, etc.) are switched off 

before disconnecting or reconnect-

ing the battery;

– when charging, stop the charger 

before connecting or disconnecting 

the battery;

– to avoid creating a short circuit 

between the terminals, do not place 

metal objects on the battery;

–  always wait at least one minute after 

the engine has been switched off 

before disconnecting a battery;

–  make sure that you reconnect the 

battery terminals after refitting.

Connecting a battery charger

The battery charger must be compa-

tible with a battery with nominal vol-

tage of 12 volts.
Do not disconnect the battery when the 

engine is running. Follow the instruc-

tions given by the manufacturer of 

the battery charger you are using.

Special procedures may be 

required to charge some 

batteries. Contact your au-

thorised dealer.

Avoid all risk of sparks which may 

cause an immediate explosion, and 

charge the battery in a well-venti-

lated area. Risk of serious injury.

Handle the battery with care 

as it contains sulphuric acid, 

which must not come into 

contact with eyes or skin. If 

it does, wash the affected area with 

plenty of cold water. If necessary, 

consult a doctor.
Ensure that naked flames, red hot 

objects and sparks do not come into 

contact with the battery as there is a 

risk of explosion. There is a risk of 

The engine may be hot when 

carrying out operations in close 

proximity. In addition, the engine 

cooling fan can come on at any 

Risk of injury.

Before performing any 

action in the engine com-

partment, the ignition must 

be switched off (please see 

the information on “Starting, stop-

ping the engine” in Section 2).


Starting the vehicle using the 

battery from another vehicle

If you have to use the battery from ano-

ther vehicle to start, obtain suitable 

jump leads (with a large cross sec-

tion) from an approved dealer or, if you 

already have jump leads, ensure that 

they are in perfect condition.
The two batteries must have an iden-

tical nominal voltage of 12 volts. The 

battery supplying the current should 

have a capacity (amp-hours, Ah) which 

is at least the same as that of the dis-

charged battery.
Ensure that there is no risk of contact 

between the two vehicles (risk of short 

circuiting when the positive terminals 

are connected) and that the discharged 

battery is properly connected. Switch 

off your vehicle ignition.
Start the engine of the vehicle sup-

plying the current and run it at a mode-

rate speed.

BATTERY: troubleshooting 






Lift the box cover 3 located behind the 

battery, then lift the battery half-cover 4.
Connect the positive cable A to sup-

port  1 (+) located under the box 

cover 3, then to terminal 5 (+) of the 

battery supplying the current.
Connect the negative cable B to ter-

minal 6 (–) of the battery supplying the 

current then to the metal cable 2 (–) of 

the discharged battery.
Start the engine, and as soon as it starts 

running, disconnect cables A and B in 

reverse order ( 2 - 6 - 5 - 1).




Check that there is no 

contact between leads A 

and B and that the positive 

lead A is not touching any 

metal parts on the vehicle supplying

Electrical and electronic accessories

Before installing this type of accessory (particularly for transmitters/receivers: frequency bandwidth, power level, po-

sition of the aerial, etc.), make sure it is compatible with your vehicle. You can get advice from an authorised dealer.

Connect accessories with a maximum power of 120 Watts only. Fire hazard. When several accessory sockets are 

used at the same time, the total power of the connected accessories must not exceed 180 watts.

No work may be carried out on the vehicle’s electrical or radio circuits, except by authorised dealers: an incorrectly connected 

system may result in damage being caused to the electrical equipment and/or the components connected to it.

If the vehicle is fitted with any aftermarket electrical equipment, make sure that the installation is correctly protected by a fuse. 

Establish the rating and position of this fuse.

Using the diagnostic socket

The use of electronic accessories on the diagnostic socket may cause serious disturbance to the vehicle’s electronic systems. 

For your safety we recommend that you use only electronic accessories approved by the manufacturer, consult an Approved 

Dealer. Serious accident risk.

Use of transmitting/receiving devices (telephones, CB equipment etc.).

Telephones and CB equipment with integrated aerials may cause interference to the electronic systems originally fitted to the 

vehicle: it is advisable only to use equipment with an external aerial. Furthermore, we remind you of the need to conform 

to the legislation in force concerning the use of such equipment.

Fitting aftermarket accessories

If you wish to install accessories on the vehicle: please contact an authorised dealer. Also, to ensure the correct operation of 

your vehicle, and to avoid any risk to your safety, we recommend that you use only accessories specifically designed for your 

vehicle, which are the only accessories for which the manufacturer will provide a warranty.

If you are using an anti-theft device, only attach it to the brake pedal.

Obstructions to the driver

On the driver’s side, only use mats suitable for the vehicle, attached with the pre-fitted components, and check the fitting regu-

larly. Do not lay one mat on top of another. There is a risk of wedging the pedals.
