WARNING!

Do not stand close to the batteries when using starter cables. A battery can explode with extensive damage as a consequence.

Do not connect batteries together in an environment where there are flammable gases or fluids such as petrol and ethanol.

Follow the instructions exactly to prevent  personal injury or material damage.

IMPORTANT!

The side panels of the front grille panel must be open when tilting the cab.

If the vehicle’s batteries are discharged and do not have enough current to start the engine, you can connect them to other batteries.

Both systems must have the same battery voltage, that is to say 24 V.

Use thick starter cables (at least 25 mm²) with insulated clamps.   

Preparations:

  • Start the engine in the vehicle that has charged batteries.

Proceed as follows (option 1):

  1. Connect to the service battery’s positive pole (+) in the vehicle with low battery voltage.
  2. Connect to the battery’s positive pole (+) in the vehicle with the fully charged battery.
  3. Connect to the battery’s negative pole (-) in the vehicle with the fully charged battery.
  4. Connect to the service battery’s negative pole (-) in the vehicle with low battery voltage. This final cable can cause a spark when connected.
  5. Start the engine in the vehicle with low battery voltage. Do not stand close to the batteries.
  6. When the engine has started, first disconnect the cable from the battery’s minus pole (-) in the vehicle with low battery voltage and thereafter the other cables.
  7. If the engine does not start. Disconnect the cables according to step 6 and repeat all points but with one exception. At step 1, connect to the battery’s plus pole (+) on the inner battery in the vehicle with low battery voltage.

Proceed as follows when the vehicle is giving start assistance:

  1. Connect to the battery’s positive pole (+) in the vehicle with low
    battery voltage.
  2. Connect to the service battery’s positive pole (+) in the vehicle with the fully charged battery.
  3. Connect to the service battery’s negative pole (-) in the vehicle with the fully charged battery.
  4. Connect to the battery’s negative pole (-) in the vehicle with low battery voltage. This final cable can cause a spark when connected.
  5. Start the engine in the vehicle with low battery voltage. Do not stand close to the batteries.
  6. When the engine has started, first disconnect the cable from the battery’s minus pole (-) in the vehicle with low battery voltage and thereafter the other cables.

NOTE!

If the protective paint on the frame gets damaged, it must be touched-up immediately.

IMPORTANT!

Advice when the engine is difficult to start:
The starter motor is blocked automatically after 35 seconds. 
Run the starter motor for max. 30 seconds. If the engine  does not start the first time: turn the starter key back to the radio position and wait approximately 30 seconds to allow the starter motor to recover.
If the engine has not started after 2 attempts, the starter motor must rest for at least 5 minutes before 2 new attempts are made.   Investigate if something else is faulty, for example a fault in the fuel system.
