For jump starting kn neg ground positive first then ground.

For replacement GROUND FIRST to disconnect, gfpund last to connect.

This is because yoy are likely to touch ground when making connections, while dping ground no big deal, once ground is not connected no sparks.

If ground is connected then a tool can be welded in place if it touches

When removing the battery take the neg cable off first and when installing the new battery put the pos cable on first. If you take the pos off first you will see fireworks. If you put the neg on your new battery first you will see fireworks when you put the pos on.

I have replaced all 6 of my batteries. Remove neg 1st as suggested above. Take pictures before you remove cables and also it helps to label the pos and neg cables.
