Steven Posted August 3, 2013 Report Share Posted August 3, 2013 Why does the CTLS maintenance manual warn never to jump-start an aircraft with a weak or dead battery ??? Can it cause damage to the battery or electrical system ? I successfully jump started my plane on several occasions (with an 1800 amp auto jump starter) due to a weak battery or other problem (I'm trying to find the root cause). Here's the quote from page 10-4 of the maintenance manual - Never “jump-start” an aircraft that has a “dead” or discharged battery. It takes approximately three hours to recharge a fully discharged battery with the aircraft generating system or external power. http://documents.flightdesignusa.com/CTLS%20MM%20rev.4.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
