Opel Corsa: Vehicle care / Jump starting

Do not start with quick charger.

A vehicle with a discharged vehicle battery can be started using jump leads and the vehicle battery of another vehicle.

Warning

Be extremely careful when starting with jump leads. Any deviation from the following instructions can lead to injuries or damage caused by battery explosion or damage to the electrical systems of both vehicles.

Warning

Avoid contact of the battery with eyes, skin, fabrics and painted surfaces. The fluid contains sulphuric acid which can cause injuries and damage in the event of direct contact.

  • Never expose the vehicle battery to naked flames or sparks.
  • A discharged vehicle battery can already freeze at a temperature of 0 °C. Defrost the frozen battery before connecting jump leads.
  • Wear eye protection and protective clothing when handling a battery.
  • Use a booster battery with the same voltage (12 V). Its capacity (Ah) must not be much less than that of the discharged vehicle battery.
  • Use jump leads with insulated terminals and a cross section of at least 16 mm2 (25 mm2 for diesel engines).
  • Do not disconnect the discharged vehicle battery from the vehicle.
  • Switch off all unnecessary electrical consumers.
  • Do not lean over the vehicle battery during jump starting.
  • Do not allow the terminals of one lead to touch those of the other lead.
  • The vehicles must not come into contact with each other during the jump starting process.
  • Apply the parking brake, transmission in neutral, automatic transmission in P.
