Question about 1999 Subaru Impreza
I own a MY99 Subaru Impreza WRX Limited edition it has an immobiliser installed the brand is auto watch the battery needs to be jump started because i have a clogged fuel pipe and it takes me like 20 tries before the car starts and now the battery died so how would I go about jump starting the car
Use another vehicle and start by connecting the jump leads from the negative on one battery to the negative on the other and do the same with the positive, the positive is the one with the cross or the red wires. dont worry if u get a little spark when connecting the jump leads its perfically normal, then simply start the other vehicle up and leave it running for aruond 5 minuates then try starting your can.(you may need to rev the other car up a bit to raise the power being transfered) be very careful not to put the jump leads on the wrong terminals.
i hope this advice helps u,
can you please rate this advice

Actually you should always hook the positive leads first. Positive from the "donor" car to the positive terminal on the "patient" car. Then attach a negative lead from the donor car's negative terminal to the CHASSIS or MOTOR BODY of the patient car. This is vital to prevent a surge which could possibly spike your vehicles ECU. Start the donor car first, and always be sure to put a little load on the patient car, for example turn the headllights on, before attempting to start it. If you follow these instructions you can not go wrong.
