Ford Escape: General Information / Description and Operation - High Voltage System Health and Safety Precautions - Overview

  WARNING: Service of the high voltage system on this vehicle is restricted to qualified personnel. The required qualifications vary by region. Always observe local laws and legislative directives regarding electric vehicle service. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death.

  WARNING: To prevent the risk of high-voltage shock, always follow precisely all warnings and service instructions including instructions to depower the system. The high-voltage system utilizes high-voltage cables to its components and modules. The high-voltage cables and wiring are identified by orange harness tape or orange wire covering. All high-voltage components are marked with high-voltage warning labels with a high-voltage symbol. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury or death.

  WARNING: Disconnect the 12  V battery before servicing the direct current to alternating current (DC-AC) inverter or alternating current (AC) powerpoint to prevent the risk of high voltage shock. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury.

  WARNING: Extreme heat such as paint drying ovens will cause the damage of the high voltage battery. The high voltage battery must be removed before using paint drying ovens longer than 45 minutes or with temperatures above 60°C (140°F). Failure to follow this instruction may result in damaging the high voltage battery, which could cause serious personal injury or death in a fire or explosion.

If equipped with service disconnect plug:

  WARNING: Never install the service disconnect plug when a high-voltage service cover is removed. Always install the cover prior to connecting the service disconnect plug. The cover prevents inadvertent contact with the high voltage which is present at several points under the cover. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury or death.

European legislation requirement:

  WARNING: For work on high voltage components under live condition, an additional safety guard with the qualification HV Technician equipped with a rescue hook must be present. This person must supervise the work and be prepared to provide first aid in case of electrical shock. Failure to follow this instruction may result in serious personal injury or death.
