The same way you would if they were in the engine compartment.

Hi, my range rover sport hse 2006 as been sitting for about a week i went to start it yesterday it struggled but started. a engine fault message came up so i went and got a new battery put it on and now i...

The manual has lots of warnings:
After re-connecting the battery, the steering wheel must be turned to full left-hand and right-hand lock (with engine running). This allows the DSC system to relearn the steering wheel position. Failure to do so will result in a variety of instrument warning lights being illuminated.
Then after you replaced the battery (battery being empty is the same for the electronics) it says:
page41image424 Prior to carrying out any procedures which involve disconnecting/connecting the battery, refer to the Electrical Section of this manual - Battery disconnection/connection.
For additional information, refer to: Specifications (414-01 Battery, Mounting and Cables, Specifications).
and :
A discharged battery condition may have been caused by an electrical short circuit. If this condition exists there will be an apparently live circuit on the vehicle even when all normal circuits are switched off. This can cause arcing when the jumper cables are connected. then tis part:
It is advisable not to use starter/charger sets for jump starting but if this is unavoidable, make sure that the sets are not used in the 'START' mode.

  • ? Always make sure that the jumper cables are adequate for the task.
  • ? Always make sure that the slave battery is of the same voltage (12 volts) as the vehicle battery. The batteries must be connected in parallel.
  • ? Make sure that the battery terminals of both batteries are fully tightened.
  • ? Where another vehicle is used to jump start a disabled vehicle, make sure that the two vehicles are not touching.
  • ? It is advisable that the engine of the donor vehicle is switched off during jump starting; take care to make sure that the battery of the donor vehicle does not also become discharged.
  • ? Always make sure that switchable electric circuits are OFF before connecting jump cables. This reduces the risk of arcing occurring when the final connection is made.
    Following jump starting of a disabled vehicle, the discharged battery must be checked for serviceability and recharged as soon as possible to avoid permanent damage.
    Do not rely on the generator to restore a discharged battery. For a generator to recharge a battery, it would take in excess of eight hours continuous driving with no additional loads placed on the battery.
    Trickle charging (defined as voltages <16 volts) may be carried out with the battery connected. Make sure that the battery terminals are fully tightened prior to trickle charging
It would be to much to put the complete manual here, because I think you would not be able to solve this problem.
The manual (this is the 2007 one) is almost 80 MB and has over 3000 pages. Too much to post here. Sorry.

How can I jumpstart my car from my friends 2009Audi A8

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.

How to jump start 2000 impala

Connect the battery to the battery of a donor vehicle with jump leads positive to positive and negative to negative, don't try to start the Impala, run the engine of the donor vehicle at a fast idle 2000rpm for about 10 minutes, then start the Impala. When it starts stop the engine of the donor but don't disconnect the leads for another ten minutes, this is to avoid an electrical spike to the electronics.

I need instructions on how to jump start a car (mainly because i always forget which vehicle needs to have both cables connected to both batt. posts and which needs to have one on batt. post and the other...

Start with positive cable on the positive post of donor car (the one giving a jump). Other end on positive post of donee car (the one getting the jump). Now negative cable on battery post of donor car, and other end of negative cable on a metal piece of the donee car-the one getting jumped.

I have a 1999 Volkswagen beetle. Key was left in the ignition for 3days. Lights will come on in the inside. but will not turn over, even after trying to jump it off.

try some proper jump leads and not then cheap chinese things ,you need cables with a copper inside the diameter of your ring finger and double connectd to each side of the clip before you can even think of trying to jump a engine ,these cheap cables are only for charging one vehicle to another not passing 200 amps through

Wont start. battery tested good. will start when jumped.

Without knowing what test it was exactly, what the results were and whether they were interpreted correctly I'm going to have to make an educated guess that they tested the battery whilst it was removed from your car.

Most automotive chain store battery testers only check the battery voltage, their principal use is to help them check when the new batteries they hold in stock need recharging. This test is useless for your battery as you need to be able to test the battery under the kind of load it undergoes when trying to start your car.

As your car won't start on its own battery but starts fine when jumped it means that the starter motor isn't getting enough voltage under load from its own battery but that everything else is just fine.

Conclusion: your battery has reached the end of its life and needs to be renewed. If your battery has lasted less than a minimum of three years (most last at least four to five years these days) then you may also have an alternator output issue. If so get an automotive electrician (not some poorly trained Autozone sales monkey) to check the charging circuit for you or you can do it yourself very easily with a basic multimeter. See here
