There is no battery in the world that does not have a negative terminal. but, the negative lead of the jumper should be connected to any solid metal bracket on the engine (on both vehicles) Stay away from drive belts.

    You need to put the ground cables on the engine (bracket etc) otherwise the starter needs to pull ground from the car body and cannot get the absolute connection it requires.

Place the negative cable on the frame of the car to ground it. It's best to do this even when there is a negative post present to protect the car and the alternator.

Can i jump start my 2008pontiac g5 from the front of the car


You should have a steel bolt coming up by the relay box that is your positive terminal for your battery, then connect to any unpainted metal to ground and presto there is a jumper spot .... or if you have a manual get it rolling put it into first when you have it rolling at a 5 km/h rough speed and release the clutch and start the car at the same time

How to jump start my 2005 Pontiac Montana?


Using jumper cables :
1. Connect one red clamp to the positive terminal (+) of running car's battery and the other end red clamp to the positive terminal (+) of the dead car's battery .
2. Connect one black clamp to the negative terminal (-) of running car's battery and the other end black clamp to the negative terminal (-) of the dead car's battery.
Basically... (+) to (+)...and... (-) to (-)
3. Crank up the car needing the jump.
4. Once car is jumped and running...remove clamps in reverse order.

Using battery pack: Connect in the same fashion as above.

Hi, I have a 2008 Pontiac G5 and I accidentally kept the lights on all day. Since I only have a positive (red) connection, I ground the negative connection to metal as well as the other car negative...


sounds like you are on the right track. Hook the jumper cables up to the dead car first. The red cable should go to the jumper terminal as you mentioned and a good place to hook up the black cable is the bolts on the strut tower.

then with the other car running hook up the red lead to the cars positive battery cable and then the negative to a good ground. Let the two cars sit for about 5 to ten minutes to give the dead battery a chance to charge.

Once the dead car is started let it idle with the lights turned off for at least 45 minute to an hour or drive it for the same amount of time with the light on (I assume you will be driving in the dark) or if its day time drive it for 30 to 40 minutes with the lights off. This should be enough time for the alternator to charge the dead battery.

Dead battery. Try jump starting it. Then stop by any good parts store (Advance, Autozone, etc) and have them to a FREE charging system test and a FREE battery load test. I suspect your battery has left this planet...

Pontiac G5 only starts when jumped. Battery tested out fine, Alternator tested out fine. Not running any codes...Now what?


Was the battery "load tested"? lotso f auto parts stores just test for 12 Volts across the terminals. You ned to have it load tested. Thats where a load simulating the starter is put on the battery. I have a carbon pile tester that places 500 Amps on the battery. many times I have seen a battery show 12 Volts and fail the load test due to a dead cell.

If it's a side terminal battery, it's really hard to get a good clean connection.

Need help putting battery in


Battery lives under rear seat IIRC.

Remove Ground - post clamp first and then Positive+ clamp from battery.

There will be one or two 10mm nuts holding the lower securing metal clamp that stops the battery from moving around.

Remove these and lift out securing plate then lift out battery.

Install new or recharged battery and secure lower metal clamp.

Install Positive post **** and then Negative post clamp in this order .

Start engine and check charging rate...max 14.68vdc at 200 rpm and 13.14vdc or higher at idle.

Avoid jump or boost starting these vehicles as electronic damage can occur to on board electrics.

Negative Post for Battery


For jumping connection it is under the hood, directly between the red capped post and the driver side. It says GRD on the post. Good luck.

Proper way to jump your car is to attach the jumper cable clamps to the marked posts on your car...on the vehicle that is jumping you, attach the positive clamp to the positive post and the negative clamp to some piece of metal on the vehicle...can even be a screw as long as it sparks a little (grounding). Don't connect the clamp to the negative post.
