Disable Procedure

Disconnecting the negative terminal of the 12 Volt battery automatically disables the high-voltage system.

Hybrid Welding Best Practices

When welding on an HEV or EV, follow the same precautions as when welding on a conventional vehicle. In addition, there are precautions to take with the high voltage battery. As a best practice, disconnect both the 12v battery and the high-voltage battery service disconnect. (Note: Always disable the high-voltage battery following the vehicle makers repair information and follow all safety precautions.)

Refinish Precautions

High temperatures such as spraybooth bake cycles can affect the performance and life of HV batteries. BMW states: Control units are designed for a temperature of 65 °C. The temperatures in a spray booth do not pose any problems. If a vehicle is in the spray booth at a displayed temperature of 80°C, the actual temperature of the vehicle is ≤ 60 °C (object temperature).
