The Battery Has Got To Be Labeled With A Plus And Minus Or A Red Or Black Felt Around One Of The Posts. Red Is Positive And Black Is Negative. You Can But Not Recommended Hook The Black One To Any Part Of Your Engine Where Bare Metal is Hook Up The Black Wire Then Touch One Of The Terminals With The Other End Of The Black Side. The Positive Side Will Produce A Spark So Do It Gently But Quickly. The One That Sparks Is You + Positive And The Other Is Negative. The Last process Is Not Recommended But Will Work.

Red is positive. Black is negative. Negative goes to ground (car body and engine block). Positive goes to the starter.

How do you give a jump start to someone using a 2007 Dodge Charger?


The underhood connections can work by themselves...POS to POS, and NEG to NEG...sometimes dirty/weak connections do not allow the power to transfer fully from the underhood connections...if this is the case then you need to connect directly to the battery in trunk for full power charge...again POS to POS, and NEG to NEG...hope this helps

How to jump a BMW 320


All vehicles with a 12 Volt Positive system are jump started in the same manner.

If done properly, you should always connect the +Pos side on the battery in the vehicle that should be running, then connect that same cable to the +Pos side on the low battery. Then, you connect the
-Neg side on the running vehicle, and now connect the other -Neg end to a solid ground on the vehicle with the low battery. You really want a good connection for this on a solid part of the engine/trans., since when you attempt to start the car, it will be drawing 400-700 Amps.
(Alternator bracket, exhaust manifold, a sling point, etc. wil do.)

Some people hook to the -Neg side of the low battery, but that can cause sparks as well as an explosion if hydrocarbons are coming out of the low battery.

A completely fried battery can cause the vehicle providing the jump start to stall and can even damage components if not connected properly.

Good luck!

Left the lights on .. how to jump the battery in a 2005 Passat wagon.


It jumps like any other car. Pos. good battery...Pos. bad battery...Neg. bad battery...Neg. good battery. Then do reverse after it starts. Let old battery charge from new battery with car running if it needs more power to crank over.
