Battery Fitting and Free Battery Checks
Most modern car batteries are maintenance free. This means that there are no checks you can undertake yourself, except to make sure that the terminals are connected correctly and are not corroded.
You'll normally find your battery under the bonnet of your car. However, on some luxury models the battery may be under the rear seat or in the boot. Other models have two batteries. Your car's handbook will tell you where the battery is located and will identify any checks that you can carry out yourself.
When handling a car battery, make sure you use the appropriate tools. Batteries contain sulphuric acid which is highly corrosive and will injure you if it comes into contact with your eyes or skin.
Your car battery will have two terminals. One terminal is positive, marked with a plus sign (+), while the other is negative, marked with a minus sign (-). If you are tightening the terminal collections, be careful. Mixing up the terminals can cause an electric shock and damage the battery.
