Tip & How-To about Buick LaCrosse
If your vehicles battery has run down, you may want to use another vehicle and some jumper cables to start your vehicle.
1.Check the other vehicle. it must have a 12-volt battery with a negative ground system.
2.Get the vehicles close enough so the jumper cables can reach, but be sure the vehicles are not touching each other. If they are, it could cause a ground connection you do not want. You would not be able to start your vehicle, and the bad grounding could damage the electrical systems.
3.Turn off the ignition on both vehicles. Unplug unnecessary accesories pluged into the cigarrete lighter or the accessory power outlets. Turn off the radio and lamps that are not needed. This will avoid sparks and save both batteries. And it could save the radio.
4.Open the hood on the other vehicle and locate positive (+) and the negative (-) terminal locations on that vehicle. You will not use yours vehicles battery for jump starting. It has a remote positive (+) jump starting terminal, located on the underhood fuse block, for that purpose.
