Agreed, things also get a little fuzzy at step 12. They mention you shouldn't install the new battery until that step, but then in step 13 they mention to make sure to reconnect the high voltage controller harness connector before reconnecting 12V power. There are some formatting issues, so maybe it makes more sense from the web-based interface.Finally, thank you to the person who posted the service manual procedure. It never mentioned removal of the positive battery post, but I assume it's immediately after removing the negative one, since there's no more mention of that. It's the worst service manual I've seen, and it's coming from an American company. Typically the issues arise from bad translations, but not the case here. Oh well.
