The cable that goes to the starter should be connected to the positive terminal. The ground cable will go to a bolt on the engine or the frame.

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

It wont start, just makes a clicking noise. put new battery cables on, new starter, new cylinoid. tried to jump start it, wont jump start either

Clicking noise usually means a bad connection at the battery terminal. It can also be a bad connection at the starter or solenoid.
Re-clean and tighten battery cables,and if that doesn't do it,re-tighten starter connections.Don't overtighten as copper-bronze studs can break easily.If your Ranger is standard shift (4 or 5-speed), don't get under the car or in front of it without the battery cables disconnectede or the shifter in neutral,as any current you inadvertently send thru the starter can engage it and run you over or knock the vehicle off jackstands or blocks. don-ohio

How to jump start dodge magnum, my battery is dead

It's pretty simple. In mine, there is a positive terminal under the hood with a red " " cover; this is where the positive cable goes. On the body of the car, near the positive terminal, there is a tab that sticks out (this is where the negative cable goes). Hook the cables to a good battery; wait a few minutes and start your car.

Please tell me where are the positive and negetive ends of the battery for a jump start, my batttery is dead Dr.S.V.Anand

If you can locate the battery, telling the positive from the negative terminal easy.

Inspect the terminals closely; the positive terminal has a 'plus' (+) sign near it. This terminal is also larger than the other (usually).

Similarly the negative terminal has a 'minus' (-) near it.

Did you reset the computer after you replaced the crankshaft position sensor?

If you have,it may just be the connectors on the ECM.

If not,try this first.

To reset your engine codes:
Remove the negative terminal of your battery.
Turn your ignition key to START and hold it there for about 15 seconds.
Turn your ignition key to OFF and remove it.
Reconnect the negative terminal of your battery.
Test the vehicle.

1989 dodge ram 50 2.6l won't start after jumping other day, fuse?


When the battery terminals were replaced, be sure to check that all the wiring was correctly installed. (Pos+ to Pos+ and Neg- to Neg-, etc.)

Sounds like something got missed and the ignition system is not working... be sure to check the main fuses and replace any that are blown.

Cheers, Jay
