Disconnecting Auto Battery Terminal Connectors

Yes, it is safe to disconnect a "car" battery while it's raining, IF you do it properly.

When disconnecting a vehicle battery, raining or not, ALWAYS disconnect the NEGATIVE [--] terminal first, and when reconnecting, always connect the NEGATIVE terminal last.

No, they're not. No electrical apparatus should be used while it's raining or where they can get wet as serious hazards may occur.

Gosh I hope so! I have been doing it for decades! Just check the chemical levels and make sure they are safe. I even swim while it is raining!

As long as the field you put it in is safe and your horse is wearing the right rugs etc. then yes.

Not at all, u could end up drowning from the rain

Yes, just make sure you have the car and lights turned off while you're doing the work.

This depends on the type of battery. Car batteries are always charged while in use. With other types of batteries, this is not recommended and may result in a battery explosion or damage to the device the battery is powering.

Behind the glove compartment to the right. I'd disconnect the battery before changing it just to be safe.

Yes a dog does know when it is raining and he will like it inside so that he does not get wet.

They are safe to use for your lawn make sure you pay attention to the safety recommendations though. Such as using a proper extension cord, or never using it while it is still wet or raining outside.

You can do anything, but is it safe or proper. No The 24 V will eventually overcharge the battery after a while and start damaging it. (A flammable gas is produces and the battery could explode.)

there are going to be perfectly fine, there feet will be wet when they come in though, its better dogs go out than stay in the entire day, even when its raining

They most of the time they are under a tree or if it raining they find a place where it dry and safe.

The battery is under the passenger rear seat, you can jump start it under the hood and you can disconnect it just below the rear passenger seat. If you want access to the battery, you must remove the rear passenger seat. if its not under the hood check under the back seat or in the trunk drive safe

Yes, it's safe I ordered a PSP battery from there

Yes. There is some concern about the safety of both wired and wireless phones during lightening storms, however. Just raining is perfectly safe to talk on the phone.

disconnect battery, and remove the bolts behind the steering wheel. the airbag will be plugged into to the clocksping just unplug it. just be careful ------------ Please make sure that you wait at least 15 minutes after you disconnect the battery to let the airbag power down. I usually wait around a half hour just to be safe.

Most inverters will not be harmed by charging the battery [running the engine while the inverter is connected]. However, for safety [inverters are expensive] it is best that the Owner/User Manual be consulted to make sure that it is safe to charge the battery while the inverter is connected.

Yes, but it is not as safe as a sealed battery.

If there is a hole through your battery, do not use

Assuming you're talking about a lead-acid (car type) battery, the answer is yes. They get charged while in use anyway.

This is from the Sentry Web Site:How do I insert the batteries on my standard electronic lock?To power the lock, four alkaline AA batteries, are required.To install batteries:· slide open the battery cover located just below the keypad.· Insert a paper clip or pen point into the small hole in the cover.· Push in while sliding cover to the right.· Disconnect and remove the battery holder.· Insert the 4-batteries as indicated.· reconnect the connector and put back the battery holder.· Slide the cover back in place.

Twelve volt battery chargers are just another battery you carry with you or keep at home. They are just as safe as any other battery you use. Just like any battery, they will have battery acid within them and have the potential to leak, but chances are very slim if you care for it properly.

93 3.0 voyager. from the bottum, remove any plastic under shields , and passenger tire. disconnect. battery first. and use jack stands, be safe

is very simple, just remove the plastic cover from the engine, locate the ignition coil that you want to replace, but before you disconnect the ignition coil disconnect one terminal from the battery and make sure that doesn't touch the chassis from the car and then disconnect the wires connector from the ignition coil and remove the two scrawls from the ignition coil and install the new one and make sure you replaced the washer that goes at the baton of the coil and reconnect the wires connector back and reconnect back the terminal from the battery on some times went you disconnect the battery your radio may go into safe code make sure you have the code to reprogram you radio again before you do this procedure
