Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE / ENGINE COMPARTMENT / Maintenance-Free Battery

Your vehicle is equipped with a maintenance-free battery. Water will never have to be added, and periodic maintenance is not required.

NOTE:

The battery is stored under an access cover in the trunk. Remote battery terminals are located in the engine compartment for jump starting.

WARNING!

  • Battery fluid is a corrosive acid solution and can burn or even blind you. Do not allow battery fluid to contact your eyes, skin, or clothing. Do not lean over a battery when attaching clamps. If acid splashes in eyes or on skin, flush the area immediately with large amounts of water.
  • Battery gas is flammable and explosive. Keep flame or sparks away from the battery. Do not use a booster battery or any other booster source with an output greater than 12 Volts. Do not allow cable clamps to touch each other.
