SOURCE: Hi, I have a 2008

The correct way to 'jump' a vehicle is to connect the RED alligator clips of the jumper cables to the RED (+ positive) terminal on the batteries, and to connect the BLACK clips to a piece of metal, which should be a good engine bracket, or some other heavy piece of metal, that is connected to the engine, on both vehicles. Make sure that you have a good, tight connection, and be sure that the RED is not touching anything other than the battery terminal.

Hook up the Jumping vehicle first, Red, then hook the dead vehicle RED, then hook the jumping vehicle BLACK, then hook the dead vehicle BLACK. There will likely be a small spark when you make the last connection, so don't freak out if this happens. If there is a MAJOR spark, to the point that it seems to want to melt something down, then you have hooked it up backwards. After it is hooked up correctly, let the Jumping vehicle run for awhile, like ten minutes or so, so that it can charge up the dead battery in your car. Then, start your car, and unhook the jumper cables in the reverse order. After you have started your car, let it run awhile to fully charge your battery back up.

I am not sure by what you mean "I only have a red connection" Because the battery has two terminals, a red+ (positive) and a black-(negative).

How do i determine of my 2008 hyundai elantra is negative grounded or positive grounded?

If you have a multimeter, it should be easy. Black lead on frame and red lead on "hot". If you read -12 Volts, you have a positive ground. If you read + 12Volts, you have negative ground system.

VW beetle 2003 won't start. nothing not a click

Check to make sure the master fuse hasn't blown. It's rather large and should be located next to the fuse box. Also, make sure you don't have a broken battery cable. With an ohm meter, check both the positive and negative cables. You should only see a few ohms of resistance. If you see a really high number or it indicates that it is open, replace the cable. I hope this helps! :)

What side is the positive sign on battery?

The "+" sign indicates positive, it usually has a red cover over it. without looking at the battery I can't tell you which side it is on. The Positive cable is usually Red and the Negative is usually Black.

I can't locate the blower motor on my 2000 vw beetle.

You could have just joined a VW forum and get both negative and positive comments for free. Real world answers just as long as you don't get bothered by negative people. I think I know what your next ? will be. Why doesn't my blower work in the lower speed and only in the highest?

Beetle is making an indicator clicking noise

Sounds like a bad ground in the circuit. You would have to tear the dash apart and follow the wires to make sure everything is secure and all grounding screws are snug. Good Luck!

Battery Removal

Lilscorpgurl -

You will want to disconnect the negative (black) cable from the battery first. When disconnecting the negative cable, be sure you DO NOT touch the positive (red) terminal with the wrench you're using.

After the negative is safely disconnected and tucked out of the way, go ahead and disconnect the positive cable (red)...taking care not to touch the negative terminal with the wrench.

When you reconnect the battery, reverse the order: positive first, negative last.

How do I change the battery on a 1999 volkswagon beetle?

Open the battery compartment. Loosen the bolt on the negative battery post first. Then remove the negative cable from the battery. Do the same to the positive cable. Remove the hold down bracket with a 10mm wrench. Lift out the battery please keep in mind it has acid in it. Now replace with new battery and connect the cables negative to negative , and positive to positive. You may need to reset your radio stations on your car.
