You want to use the battery in the engine compartment, the one the alternator charges. I just connect the batteries directly pole to pole. When you rev up the engine the alternator will increase the output going into your battery.
place the red lead (positive terminal) from the jumper battery to the positive terminal of the audi battery. connect the negative lead from the jumper battery to the engine of the audi ( select a metal part that the clamp will fit on) Connecting to the negative terminal of the audi battery runs the risk of a power surge that may damage the ECM of the audi. If jumping from another vehicle run the jumper engine at around 2000rpms before trying to start the audi
It may depend on the type of battery charger used. Some of the commercial or garage type chargers can apply a rapid charge at 24Volts. This of course can damage some items on some cars. I would check your fuses and relays under the dash for the source of your smoke. If your charger only puts out 12Volts then the problem may still be a relay or fuse, just blowing to protect the items on the circuit, such as your power window motors. If a motor did not get the signal to stop, then the draw would eventually overheat the fuse and pop it. Good luck.
The casing on the starter is always the negative. One pole on the starter is for power and the smallest pole is for the ignition wire to link to, or it can be a plug on some cars and trucks. One of the larger poles will have a wire that goes into the starter that is not the pole that you should ever put the cable from the battery on it will be the pole that does not have a wire on it.
As seen in this pic terminal M has the wire that goes to the starter that should never have a wire atached to it from the battery. Terminal S is the ingition wire, and terminal B is the pole for the battery cable. The holes for the casing are the ground from the motor to the starter. I hope that this helps you.
Starter, removing and installing Disconnect battery NEGATIVE cable Disconnect wiring from battery to starter and starter to alternator (large terminal) Disconnect terminal 50 (small wire to ignition/starter switch) Remove starter mounting screws on engine/transmission NOTE: Remove upper bolt on starter by guiding 10 mm Allen socket with extension and flex fitting through opening on transmission housing over final drive Remove starter motor assembly Reverse procedure to install
If you look at the engine area you will see the postive jump point, let me see if i can locate a picture of this location.heres a diagram of the engine compartment, theres a fuse /relay box in the left rear, this is if you are standing in the front of the car looking in engine compartment, look for a terminal to connect the postive cable and ground the other to metal in the engine compartment, this is only to be used to acess the truck to get to battery, also look around the engine most times theres a postive hook up sometimes neear or on motor,good day,
Check the ground wire, a black connected to the ( - ) pole, it might have been disconnected.
Clean the battery clamp and battery terminals from rust and oxidation, tighten up the TERMINAL.
Remember ( + )positive pole is RED and negative ( - ) pole is black, sometimes no plastic cover!
I agree. Replace the battery first. It's under the back seat, which will lift up after undoing two screws in the front of the bottom of the seat. Remove negative terminal, remove positive terminal, lift old battery out, put in new one, attach positive terminal, attach negative terminal, reinstall seat, and you're done.
If that's not the issue, you may need to replace the alternator.
I think that it wouldn't be a good idea to use en electric arc welder as the current generated by the welding poles could damage small integrated components. May be you sould try drilling them out instead.
