 – make sure that all electric equipment (headlights, heating devices, screen wipers etc.) are switched off;
 – take into consideration all special precautions ordered on the accumulator;
 – cars should not concern each other;
 – make sure that the lever of gear shifting is in neutral situation (or PARK in case of an automatic transmission).


PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Connect one end of a red wire of big section to the positive plug of the discharged accumulator.
2. Connect other end of a red wire to the positive plug of the external accumulator.
3. Connect one end of a black wire of big section to the negative plug of the external accumulator.
4. Connect other end of a black wire of big section to the power unit or an element of a body of the started car far away from the accumulator.
5. Make sure that wires do not contact with the fan, driving belts or other rotating parts of the car.
