Proper winter storage will maintain warranty on batteries and prevent freezing.

· Clean battery compartment thoroughly, including all connections and terminals to eliminate any corrosion. Spray battery protector on the terminals.

· Check water level in the batteries, making sure that the lead plates inside the batteries are covered. DO NOT 'over-fill' the battery cell (water should not rise up into the vent neck)

· If adding water is needed, make certain that you drive the car following this to allow the water and acid to mix.

The car should have a minimum of two full charges after adding water and before prepping for winter storage.

· Make sure the car has a full charge.

· Place car in tow.

· Disconnect the main negative cable from the batteries. (This is the one that is coming from the computer. You should be able to easily identify it.)

· Disconnect the main positive cable (red in color) from the batteries; also should be easily identifiable from the computer - has one 6 gauge (regular) red cable and one 10 gauge (thinner) red cable.

In the spring (to get the car ready for use) the following steps should be taken:

· Reconnect negative cable to battery followed by the positive cable.

· Make sure all connections and cables are tight to terminals.

· Put car in run mode.

· Car will be in sleep mode. It will be necessary to turn the key on and depress the accelerator multiple times to wake the computer up.

· Plug charger in and charge car.

· When charge is complete, the car should be ready to go. It may take 3+ cycles for batteries to come back to full capacity.

How to extend the life of your batteries:

  • Avoid “deep discharging” the batteries (do not fully deplete the charge)

  • Check water level in the batteries making sure that the lead plates inside the batteries are covered

  • DO NOT “overfill” the battery cell (water should not rise into the vent neck)

  • Plug in the charger AFTER EVERY USE
