I assume that you are talking about car or truck (vehicle) batteries or lead-acid accumulators. If so, yes, usually temporarily, when you need to boost a dead battery with a strong one, either for start-up or for charging purposes. The procedure is simple, but can be dangerous if an error occurs. A lead-acid battery contains dilute suphuric acid which can cause severe burns if it comes in contact with the skin or clothes (though some types of fabric are resistant to its effects). If fact, it can cause blindness if it explodes into you face. So beware. If in doubt, let a qualified auto-electrician do the job instead. Would you want to venture it yourself, so I can outline the procedure?

1996 ez go 36 volt golf cart not doing anything. Where do I start?


You need a volt meter the problem is some ware between the battery and the ignition switch .Check battery grounds all if bat is grounded you should have 6.5 v D.C from B+ to anything on the engine or frame one at a time then test both for 13 v at the same time jump them together .This could be your problem 2 battery's with 1 bad ground .Then start from the other end the ignition switch use jumper leads hook to the switch in start position key turned to black to ground see what you have for voltage drop it should be around 12 volts if you have nothing its the ignition switch if you have less then 12 v its likely a bad ground from one of the battery's or something related to the drive motor

2009 corolla hooked up jumper cable backwards, car won't start


TAKE OF BOTH CABLES AND GROUND THEM TOGETHER FOR 30 OR SO MINUTES, THIS WILL RESET THE CARS MEMORY, TEST VOLTAGE ON BATTERY WITH VOLT METER & IF IT IS BELOW 12.31V THEN CHARGE THE BATTERY , ONCE BATTERY CHARGED HOOK UP BATTERY LEADS (TO RIGHT TERMINALS) & ATTEMPT TO START CAR, IF ALL YOU GET IS A CLICK THEN LOCATE THE STARTER MOTOR & GIVE IT A FIRM WHACK WITH A HAMMER (SERIOUSLY) THIS WILL FREE UP THE STARTER & WILL ALLOW THE CAR TO CRANK

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

84 CK TRK, 2500, 5.7L 55,000 miles have replaced alternator twice - battery still reads 12 volts. Trickle charge on battery OK and engine starts up OK - terminal 1 on alternator wire (brown) reads 2.4volts...


On some of the older style GM's you can take that brown wire and cut it and take the end leading from the alternator and hook it directly to the hot terminal on the alternator and just leave it hooked up and it will work. But I have ran into the occasional problem where leaving it hooked up will drain the battery when the vehicle isn't running. Hope this helps..

When battery is connected the starter engages


You have 2 wires touching somewere.  Possable burnt together. Check the wires at the soleniod one is ground one is hot from the switch. remove the wires hook up battery with a 12vdc test light or volt/ohm meter ck for voltage on the wires. find the hot one and trace it thru the harness cut any ties or remove and coil like cover you should find the spot where it is burnt together or just rubbing.

12 volt system


The wires you have are white for common, 1 black for slide in, 1 black for slide out, and green for ground. Verify the direction that each of the black wires moves the slide before wiring. You will need a 3 position switch also.
