Besides the battery and aultanatior what would be the reson for not starting?


Alternator is not even in the starting circuit

No Crank or NoStart ---- they are different

You tested for a dead battery

If you need to jump a vehicle,don't

Find a problem-- anything & resolve it

You can ruin the electronics, jump starting or
some day you eventually will,luck only holds
out so long & you learn the hard way

Do you have spark & injector pulse while cranking

Do you have fuel pressure at the motor key on or cranking

Why no vehicle,year,motor-- shown here?

Details leading up to this,always a story that is a secret

Jump starting a Buick Lacrosse 2005


Jump starting
If your vehicles battery has run down, you may want to use another vehicle and some jumper cables to start your vehicle.
1.Check the other vehicle. it must have a 12-volt battery with a negative ground system.
2.Get the vehicles close enough so the jumper cables can reach, but be sure the vehicles are not touching each other. If they are, it could cause a ground connection you do not want. You would not be able to start your vehicle, and the bad grounding could damage the electrical systems.
3.Turn off the ignition on both vehicles. Unplug unnecessary accesories pluged into the cigarrete lighter or the accessory power outlets. Turn off the radio and lamps that are not needed. This will avoid sparks and save both batteries. And it could save the radio.
4.Open the hood on the other vehicle and locate positive (+) and the negative (-) terminal locations on that vehicle. You will not use yours vehicles battery for jump starting. It has a remote positive (+) jump starting terminal, located on the underhood fuse block, for that purpose.

Jump-start Jaguar X-type? it's more complicated than you think.


Jump Start of Vehicle Battery


IF THE BATTERY YOU ARE USING TO JUMP-START THE VEHICLE HAS RECENTLY BEEN CHARGED IT MAY STILL BE GASSING, COVER THE VENT PLUGS OR COVERS WITH A DAMP CLOTH TO REDUCE THE RISK OF EXPLOSION SHOULD ARCING OCCUR WHEN CONNECTING THE JUMP LEADS.

Turn off all electrical ancillary circuits such as radio, lights, indicators etc. If the reason for a flat battery is unknown the condition may be as a result of an electrical short circuit, so care must be taken during the Jump-start process and subsequent to connection to ascertain if this is the case. A short circuit or un-isolated ancillary load can cause arcing when the jump leads are connected, a small 'crackle' is normal but any spark or flash is an indication of a problem that should be rectified before attempting to Jump-Start the vehicle.

Jaguar do not recommended that the vehicle is jump started, and If at all possible it is preferable to replace the flat battery with a suitable fully charged unit rather than jump-start the car. However if it is done it should be carried out by suitably qualified personel. Garage services and services like AA and RAC homestart should be used whenever possible.

Obviously there are occasions when carrying out this proceedure yourself is the only practical way proceed.

If there is no option but to jump-start the discharged battery should be removed and recharged immediately after jump starting to avoid permanent damage.

High quality, heavy duty Jump leads must be used as the current consumption during starting is very high, and a voltage loss will be
exhibited though the jump leads, increasing current requirement.

Make sure that the Jump Start battery is of the same voltage as the vehicle, and suitable to provide the required starting current.

MAKE SURE THAT THE ENDS OF THE JUMP LEADS DO NOT TOUCH EACH OTHER OR GROUND AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY AT ANY TIME WHILE THE LEADS ARE ATTACHED TO THE BATTERY. ARCING AND VERY RAPID DISCHARGE CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO EXPLODE.

Connect the jump leads in the following sequence.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Jump Start battery positive terminal.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Vehicle battery positive terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to Jump Start battery negative terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to a suitable vehicle ground point at least, 300 mm (12 in) from the battery terminal e.g. engine lifting bracket, do not do not connect directly to the vehicle battery terminal.

Start the vehicle and rev to 2000 rpm, then allow tickover for 5-10 minutes.

Do not attempt continued repeated starting of the vehicle, this will cause heat build up at the terminals and though the jump leads degrading the leads performance and adding to voltage loss.

Allow 3-4 minutes recovery time for the leads and Jump Start battery between attempts to start.

Before disconnecting the jump leads, switch on the heated rear screen, to reduce the alternator voltage peak when the leads are removed, as this can damage electronic equipment.

Disconnect the jump leads in the reverse order to the connecting sequence taking great care not to short the ends of the leads.

Do not rely on the alternator to restore a discharged battery.
Ensure that the battery is recharged or replaced with a fully recharged unit
as soon as possible.

Following Jump-starting of a compleately discharged battery, you may need to carry out a Green ECM drive Cycle, this will allow the powertrain control module to 're-learn' idle values, and most likely need to re-enter your radio code, details of these can be found at. http://www.bluejag.co.uk

Why does my ignition module keep going out on my 2005 Bonneville?


Frequent ignition module failure can be caused from an over-voltage condition from the voltage regulator. Check your charging voltage at the battery when the vehicle is running, and it should not be higher than 14.3VDC.

Also, improper jump-starting using a "booster" style jump-starter can cause an ignition module to fail. Did the failure occur after jump-starting? Try using a standard trickle-charger in the future instead of jump-starting your car from a booster, or simply use jumper cables attached to another vehicle or fully-charged battery.

Be sure that the voltage at the primary side of your ignition coil is no more than 6.5VDC. If it is, replace the ignition resistor.

The remote jump starting terminal cable is over heating


I assume that you mean it is overheating just while running, not while jump starting car?

I'd look for a loose or corroded conection on one end or the other.

Jump starting a car with an immobiliser


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

F150 supercrew cab won't start,,battery good


If you're using your truck to jump start another dead battery in a different car..your truck should be runing when you do that.....

If you leave your truck turned off and are jump starting another car/truck that way..you are drawing your CCA (cold cranking amps) way down, and really shortening the life of your batery..you'll be needing to get jump started yourslf pretty soon.
