Plugging and Unplugging Precautions

SOLID STATE ELECTRONICS REQUIRE SPECIAL CARE!

OUR NORMAL BODY MOVEMENTS CAN GENERATE THOUSANDS OF VOLTS OF STATIC ELECTRICITY THAT CAN DAMAGE ANY SOLID STATE COMPONENT,

BE CAREFUL!

THE CONCERN TODAY IS WITH MICRO ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS.

WE DON’T ALWAYS NOT KNOW WHICH COMPONENTS ARE AND WHICH ARE NOT MICRO.

THEREFORE, ASSUME THEY ALL ARE, AND FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES BELOW. THEY COULD SAVE YOU FROM FRYING A NEW SOLID STATE COMPONENT.

JUST THE ACT OF UNPLUGGING AND RECONNECTING BATTERY CABLES, ALTERNATOR / GENERATOR, MODULES, WIRING HARNESS PARTS, RELAYS, SOLENOIDS, FUSES, ETC., WITH THE KEY ON COULD STRESS OR DESTROY SOME COMPONENTS DEPENDING OF VARIOUS CIRCUIT DESIGNS.

AVOID THIS POSSIBILITIY!

 
NEVER UNPLUG OR RECONNECT ANYTHING ELECTRICAL OR ELECTRONIC

 WITH THE KEY ON!
 

UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO DO SO

BY SERVICE MANUAL PROCEDURE

 NEVER WELD ON TODAY’S VEHICLES WITH THE BATTERY CONNECTED.

NEVER CLEAN DIGITAL DASH OR RADIO FACE WITH A POLYESTER CLOTH.
