cable.

Note

Check whether the vehicle has a coded radio. If so, request the anti-theft code before disconnecting the Battery A- earth wire.

Safe working conditions for repairing the electrical system are created by disconnecting the earth wire from the
Battery -A- (interrupting the current).

Upon reconnecting the Battery -A-, check the vehicle equipment (radio, clock, power locks and windows, etc.)
according to the Workshop Manual and/or instructions for use.
