When jump-starting a car using a booster battery, observe the following precautions:
•   Before connecting the booster battery, make sure that the ignition is switched off.
•   Ensure that all electrical equipment (lights, heater, wipers, etc) of your Fiat Punto is switched off.
•   Take note of any special precautions printed on the battery case.
•   Make sure that the booster battery is the same voltage as the discharged one in the vehicle.
•   If the battery is being jump-started from the battery in another vehicle, the two vehicles MUST NOT TOUCH each other.
•   Make sure that the transmission of Fiat Punto is in neutral (or PARK, in the case of automatic transmission).
