B. Overcharged Battery
1. Check the battery.
2. If battery is not defective or overheated, connect
a voltmeter between No. 2 terminal to ground. If
reading is zero, No. 2 lead circuit is open.
3. If battery and No. 2 lead circuit check good, but
an obvious overcharge condition exists as
evidenced by excessive battery water usage,
proceed as follows:
a. Separate end frames as covered in
