Although your vehicle's battery is located under the floor of the cargo area, jumper cables should be connected in the engine compartment, to the points shown in the illustrations.

Remove the cover on the main fuse box if necessary to access this terminal. Then connect the auxiliary battery's negative (Ц) terminal (3) to the ground point in your vehicle's engine compartment (4).
3. Start the engine in the assisting vehicle, then start the engine in the vehicle with dead battery.
4. After the engine has started, first remove the negative (Ц) terminal jumper cable.
