8. If reinstalling the battery, ensure it is fully charged and free of any debris or damage. Follow the instructions in the Battery Charging section of your Owner’s Manual before installing the battery.

10. Coat the battery terminals with dielectric grease or petroleum jelly.

11. Connect and tighten the (red) positive cable first to prevent arcing. 

12. Reinstall the positive cable protector boot. 

13. Connect and tighten the (black) negative cable. 

14. Install the hold-down strap over the battery and slide toward the front of the vehicle to secure it in the vehicle frame.

16. Verify the battery cables are properly secured.
