TEST OR INSPECTION
Wear proper eye protection when working around batteries. Do not allow smoking,
flames, or hot objects around batteries. If battery is giving off gases, it can explode.
Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel.
Remove rings, wristwatches, neck chains, and any other jewelry before working
around vehicle. Jewelry can catch on equipment and cause serious injury. Jewelry
and tools may short across electrical circuits and cause damage to equipment, or
severe burns or electrical shock to personnel.
Unplug 24-volt battery charger. Check battery posts for corrosion and loose
connections (TM 9-2320-347-10).
If battery posts and terminals are corroded and/or loose, clean and tighten
battery terminals (TM 9-2320-325-14&P).
