Re: Where are the terminals on a 2001 A6 - the ones to...
You will find the jumper terminals on your battery. there will be an + and a - the + is for the hot, or the possitive side of the battery and the - is for the cold, or negetive side of the battery. always make sure...be absolutely possitive that the cables are on the right one's the + and the - or else your battery could explode in your face.. good-luck be safe ray

If you're jumping with the jumper neg lead on engine block (like you should) then you have a bad ground lead.
If you are jumpering to the battery terminals then the connection to the battery itself is bad. Clean the battery connector terminals.
You have a dead battery and need a jump start. There is the right way and the wrong way to accomplish a jump start safely. Because of the potentially severe hazards due to improper use of jumper cables it must be done correctly. Auto batteries contain Sulphuric Acid which can blind you, or at the very least burn your skin. Also auto batteries vent off Hydrogen Gas which is highly explosive even from the slightest spark. Because of this danger it is critical to attach the jumper cables in a precise sequence. 1. Park the vehicle with the GOOD battery close to the vehicle with the BAD battery but do not let the vehicle touch each other. Make sure the cables are not routed so as to touch any moving parts, such as a fan blade.2. Attach the jumper cablePositive +terminal to the GOOD batteryPositive +terminal.3. Attach the other end of the jumper cablePositive +terminal to the BAD batteryPositive + terminal.4. Attach the Negative -jumper cable terminal to the GOOD batteryNegative - terminal.5. Attach the last jumper cable Negative - terminal to a heavy metal ground part of the engine andNOTto the dead battery Negative -terminal. Reason being this last connection will cause a spark, and you do not want a spark next to the battery where it could ignite the Hydrogen. 6. If the engine of the donor vehicle with the good battery was not left running, start the engine and let it run for 2-3 minutes to put a charge in the bad battery.7. Start the vehicle with the BAD battery and then remove the jumper cables from the batteries in the exact opposite order you installed them.
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
You connect jumper cables to the battery's of both vehicles with the red one to the positive+ terminal and the black one to either the negative- terminal of the battery or clamp it onto a metal part of the engine.
NOT SURE WHAT YOU SAYING ? WHEN GETTING JUMP STARTED, THE BATTERY FROM THE GOOD VEHICLE MUST PLACE JUMPER CABLES ON BATTERY TERMINALS, THE CAR BEING JUMPED, YOURS, THE (+) TERMINAL IS JUMPED FROM GOOD BATTERY, THEN THE (-) JUMPER CABLE FROM GOOD BATTERY GETS CLAMPED TO YOUR CARS FRAME OR ENGINE BLOCK, NOT YOUR DEAD BATERY !!!!!!! YOU MAY HAVE SHORTED SOMETHING OUT, MAYBE EVEN YOUR COMPUTER CHIP IN THE ECM ! YOU NEED A MASTER TECH TO HELP YOU ON THIS ONE, I WOULD'NT TOUCH THIS WITH A TEN FOOT POLE ! SORRY, I COULD BE WRONG, BUT, NOT AN EASY ISSUE OVER THE NET !!!!!!
Hi, you can jump the car at the engine. Just hook the negative jumper to a good engine ground point and hook the positive to a big hot point, like the starter solenoid. An easier spot would be a fuse box terminal if there is one handy.
If you just want to open the trunk and jump start from there, you can make your remote work by jumping to the interior fuse box. Hook the negative jumper to a good chassis ground point, turn the key on, hook a wire to the positive jumper and touch it to most any point in the fuse box while clicking your trunk button.
Let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.
On the 2005 Audi A6 3.2 (6 cylinder) the battery is stored in the right rear trunk, under the trunk floor lid. Note: To jump start the car, you simply raise the engine hood, and look in the upper left corner of the engine compartment, just slightly below the plastic cover. There you will see connections that lead to the battery and are specifically designed for jumping (or charging) the battery. You will need to lift up gently on a reddish brown cover which is protecting the positive terminal. The negative terminal (black) is not covered. Under no circumstances should you attempt to jump the battery directly. The battery could explode and you could get sulfuric acid on your face and in your eyes, which would be bad. Very bad.
To jump start any car, you will need to have either a portable jump starter (that look like the ones found here: http://www.autobarn.com.au/products/7/45/3022812/) or have jumper leads which look like alligator clips.
To use either option, attach one side of the jumper cables to to your battery, then attach the other end to another car battery (or in the case of the portable jump starter, it will be already connected with the unit).
Ensure the correct color cable is attached to the correct battery terminal (metal point on battery), i.e. red to red, black to black.
Caution: Car batteries have a high amperage and can lead to electrocution if you touch both metal points on the battery. Always be careful when doing so and if unsure, do not attempt to do so without assistance from a competent individual.
