Understanding The Correct And Proper Way Of Safely Jump Starting With Manual Override Feature
Every once in awhile, you may often find yourself behind the wheel with a dead battery. However, most completely dead batteries cannot be jump started by using your Boost’s default mode. Nonetheless, you can increase your range of jump starting with the Manual Override function. NOCO Genius Boosts are designed to jump start 12-volt lead-acid batteries down to 2-volts. By using the Manual Override feature, this will allow you to force “On” the jump start function for a weak battery. Be warned, both the spark proof and reverse polarity protection features are disabled in Manual Override mode.
Boost LED will be Off.
If your battery is below 2-volts, the Boost LED will be “Off." This is an indication that Boost can not detect a battery.
Use this mode with extreme care. Both the spark proof and reverse polarity protection features are disabled.
Before using the Manual Override feature, make sure the battery clamps are connected to the correct polarity battery terminals.
Press and Hold.
To use the Manual Override feature, press and hold the Manual Override Button, the red exclamation point icon inside a red circle, for three seconds.
Boost LED Flashes.
The white Boost LED will flash “On” and “Off” indicating you have successfully entered into Manual Override and it is ready to jump start your vehicle.
Power off the Boost Jump Starter before disconnecting the battery clamps. This will ensure your safety as both spark proof and reverse polarity protection features are disabled in Manual Override.
