(1) Jump starting by Booster jumper  cables
Call a rescure car having the same voltage (12V or 24V) and capacity as those ofr the vehicle in battery trouble. Booster (jumper) cables are used for jump starting.
For information on the specific case of your vehicle, see the Owner’s Manual for your vehicle.
Turn off the ignition swithces of both vehicles.

Check the electrolyte level of your vehicle (in trouble). Add water if the electrolyte level is below the lower level line. (See the section describing “check of electrolyte level and water addition” of this manual.)
Connect booster (jumper) cables in the order of (1)->(2)->3-> 4 as illustrated in the chart below.
Make sure to connect terminal 4) with the engine block (its hook, etc.) or frame, which is at a distance from the battery. 
Beware that the booster (jumper) cables are not caught into the cooling fan belt.
Disconnect the booster (jumper) cables in the order reverse to when connected.

(2) Recharge whit Battery Charger
First remove the battery from your vehicle (vehicle in trouble)
if you use a battery charger for recharge. Then remove all the vent plugs to diffuse gases to be emitted from the battery during charging. Charge the battery properly in a well ventilated area, following the steps given in the charger manual. Recommended values of charge current according to the battery size are as given in the table below.
Apply constant voltage of 14.4 V while charging the battery. 
If the electrolyte temperature exceeds 55ºC (131ºF), suspend charging
 

(1) Check of Electorlyte level and water addition.
Check that the electorlyte level is between the upper and lower level lines 
Add water if the electorlyte level is close to the lower level line.
To ensure the electrolyte level constantly maintained over the lower level line, Water additionl is recommended whenever the electrolyte Level is lower then the midway between the upper and lower level lines. 
• If the electrolyte level is maintained below the lower level line while using the battery, it may accelerate deterioration of internal metallic portion and reduction of electrolyet, the situation which could lead to explosion. Prompt replacement of the battery is recommeded. 
Once the plates are exposed due to the reduced electrolyte, water additon cnnnot compensate, leading to a risk of explosion.
Immediately replace the battery.
A piece of white paper may be seen at hte inside bottom of the battery .  This piece of paper does not affect hte battery quality in any way. 
Water addition
Have purfied water (replenishing battery fluid) ready at hand.
You can buy purified water at car battery stores.
Loosen and remove the battery’s vent plug.
Add purifed water to the upper level line.
Do not add water (replenishing battery fluid) over the upper level line.
Do not use any water other then that purified, specific for battery fluid. 
Securely thghten the vent plug.
Wipe off the fluid adhered to the battery surface using a dump cloth.

(2) Cleaning the Battery
Clean the battery which dump cloth.
Do not use a dry cloth.
Never use benzine, thinner, gasoloine or other organic solvents or detergents for cleaning.

(3) Checking the Fitting of Clemps and Cable Terminals
Check that there are no  loose battery clamps and cable terminals.
Retighten loose nuts. if any, to securely fix the clamps and terminals.
 

(1) Handing
Before handling the battery, be sure to discharge static electricity by touching metallic object (your vehicle).

(2) Removing the Battery
Follow the steps below to remove the battery:
1) Stop the engine and remove the ignition key.
Turn all light switches off.
2) Disconnect the negative terminal of the cable.
3) Disconnect the positive terminal of the cable.
4) Remove the battery clamps.
(If the disconnect cable terminals are dirty, please clean them with sandpaper or a wire brush.)
If your vehicle is equipped with electronic devices with memory functions, such as a power seat system, the data stored in the memory may be cleared when you remove the battery. To prevent such a situation, be sure to read the Owner’s Manual for your vehicle before you get to work on battery replacement.

(3) Installing a Replacement Battery 
Follow the steps below to install a replacement battery:
(a) Place a battery on the mount. Securely fix the battery with clamps.
If the battery on the mount. Securely fix the battery with clamps.
If the battery has handle, band,s etc. remove them before installation.
  If a protective cover is quipped, put it back as it was.
(b) Connect the positive terminal of the cable to the positive terminal of the battery. Tighten the nut securely to fix the terminals.
(c) connect the negative terminal of the cable to the negative terminal of the battery. Tighten the nut securely to fix the terminals.
(d) Put the cover for positive thermal of the cable back in its place.
Some vehicle models are not provided with this terminal cover (Application of anti-corrosive grease is recommended to protect metallic portions of the cable terminals from rusting.)
Do not leave the tools you used for replacement of the battery in the engine room.

(e) Disposal of the Removed Battery
The removed battery still retains some residual electric energy. Be careful to dispose it.
