Engine start from the auxiliary power supply


At engine start from an external source it is necessary to remember need of implementation of the following requirements:

a) Before connection of the auxiliary battery make sure that the ignition key will turn in the situation "OFF" (Off).
b) Switch off all lighting devices, a heater and other electric loadings.
c) Take care of protection of your eyes. It is best of all to use goggles.
d) Make sure that the auxiliary battery is calculated on the same rated voltage, as the battery of your car.
e) Two cars should not adjoin among themselves at all!
f) Make sure that transmission is established in the provision of neutral transfer (RKPP) or "P" (AT).
g) If the auxiliary battery is not the battery of not demanding service of type, remove ventilating covers and cover ventilating openings with rags.

Connect a red wire of big section from a set for car start from an external source to positive (+) to plugs of both batteries. One end of a black wire from a set connect to the negative (–) the plug of the auxiliary battery, and another – to reliably earthed point of the started car (for example, a bolt or an arm on the engine block). Make sure that wires do not concern blades of the fan, driving belts and other moving elements of the engine.

Make car start, then, having left the engine working at single turns, turn on the motor of the voltmeter of a heater (for the maximum speed) or a heater of back glass for smoothing of power surges which can arise at a detachment of wires (do not turn on lighting devices as sharp peaks of tension can lead to a peregoraniye of lamps). Disconnect wires, operating as it should be the return to an order of their connection.
