  2. Use a multimeter to check voltages across the HV cables and to ground:

    Warning: If any voltage reading is more than 10V, the high voltage contactors are not fully opened. Due to the risk of electrocution, contact Service Engineering before performing any further work.

    Warning: Never use a fastener or an e-coated surface as a path to ground. In this procedure, ensure that the ground strap from the HVJB is secure to the body and use the lug as a path to ground.
