Use of your Parmidge JumpEZE
June 12, 2003
CAUTION: Jumping from
one vehicle to another can be very dangerous and should only be
done as a last resort or in an emergency situation. Never, ever
jump your motorcycle from a running vehicle! A running car or
trucks charging system may (probably will) argue with or overload
your bikes charging system most certainly causing damage to your
bikes electrical system. Over the years we have all become pretty
complacent when using jumper cables as it is often a daily task
in cold weather. Just because you may jump vehicles every day,
doesn't mean the dangers are any different. So please, be very
- Lay out your Parmidge JumpEZE jumper cable
(make sure the positive and negative clamps are not
- Remove the L/H chrome panel of your
Cruiser and pull out the Parmidge JumpEZE plug.
- Remove the dust covers from both the
JumpEZE and jumper plugs and check for any dirt, debris
or damage to the plugs
- Slide both plugs together and push until
they click and lock.
- Clamp the negative (BLACK) aligator clamp
of the jumper to the negative post of the 12 volt jumper
- Clamp the positive (RED)
aligator clamp of the jumper to the positive post of the
12 volt jumper battery. If there is a large spark or
"POP", STOP and recheck that you have the jumpers connected
to the correct battery terminals! If the clamps are
connected to what appears to be the correct sides of the
battery but the positive still sparks, don't continue! There is a problem with the system of one or
the other vehicle, this problem must be corrected.
- With both clamps connected to the jumper
battery, turn on your Cruiser's ignition and check for
ignition lights. If you have no lights, recheck the
battery clamps and jumper plug.
- Press your Cruiser's start button. Crank
the starter until the motorcycle starts or a maximum of
10 seconds. If your Cruiser doesn't start within 10
seconds, stop cranking the starter. Check the JumpEZE
cables to see if they are getting hot. If the JumpEZE
cables are getting hot, wait a few minutes before trying
to start your Cruiser again.
- If your Cruiser doesn't start after
several attempts, there is a problem elsewhere and you
should stop trying. Continueing to try to start your
Cruiser will only result in damage to the bike, the
jumper vehicle, the jumper cables or yourself.
- As soon as your Cruiser starts, remove the
cables from the jumper battery.
- When unplugging the JumpEZE plug from the
motorcycle, pull on the plastic plug. Never pull on the
wires as damage will result.
