Battery charging condition can be checked by measuring
battery terminal voltage with a digital voltmeter [A].
Fuel Tank (see Fuel Tank Removal in the Fuel System
Battery Cable Caps (see Battery Removal in this chap-
Disconnect the battery terminals.
Be sure to disconnect the negative (–) cable first.
Measure the battery terminal voltage.
Measure with a digital voltmeter which can be read one
decimal place voltage.
If the reading is 12.8 V or more, no refresh charge is re-
quired, however, if the read is below the specified, refresh
charge is required.
