Ford Escape: Connecting the jumper cables
Note: In the illustration, the vehicle on the bottom is used to designate the assisting (boosting) battery.
1. Connect the positive (+) jumper cable to the positive (+) terminal of the discharged battery.
2. Connect the other end of the positive (+) cable to the positive (+) terminal of the assisting battery.
3. Connect the negative (-) cable to the negative (-) terminal of the assisting battery.
4. Make the final connection of the negative (-) cable to an exposed metal part of the stalled vehicleвЂ™s engine, away from the battery and the carburetor/fuel injection system.
Note: Do not attach the negative (-) cable to fuel lines, engine rocker covers, the intake manifold or electrical components as grounding points.
WARNING: Do not connect the end of the second cable to the negative (-) terminal of the battery to be jumped. A spark may cause an explosion of the gases that surround the battery.
Ensure that the cables are clear of fan blades, belts, moving parts of both engines, or any fuel delivery system parts.
