Connect the positive red cable to the positive battery post. Now connect the black negative cable to a bare piece of metal on the engine or on the chassis. Do not let it get into the drive belt.

How can I jumpstart my car from my friends 2009Audi A8


You want to use the battery in the engine compartment, the one the alternator charges. I just connect the batteries directly pole to pole. When you rev up the engine the alternator will increase the output going into your battery.

How do I jump start a 2006 audi a6 4.2 quatro s line


place the red lead (positive terminal) from the jumper battery to the positive terminal of the audi battery. connect the negative lead from the jumper battery to the engine of the audi ( select a metal part that the clamp will fit on) Connecting to the negative terminal of the audi battery runs the risk of a power surge that may damage the ECM of the audi. If jumping from another vehicle run the jumper engine at around 2000rpms before trying to start the audi

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, wouldn't start twice, just clicking noise. Had it jumped started fine. Battery and alternator checked out ok. Hasn't done it since then. Any suggestions? Starter or...


The fact that a jump made the thing work really rules out starter and solenoid. If you got a clicking but no start, then a jump fixed the problem, there are really only 2 possible causes. Since the first is a dead battery and you have said the battery was fine, then it has to be the second, which is a poor connection between one of the leads and the battery. Sometimes, oxidisation builds up under the connector and this will cause the connection to fail although it looks good. Clamping jump leads to the connector probably disturbed it and made the connection good again. Remove each cable clamp, clean battery connector and the clamp on the cable thoroughly with emery cloth and reconnect, As you're doing this, also check that the connections that hold the cable into the clamp are good and tight and have no corrosion.

REMEMBER that if you disconnect your battery, you may loose the security code to your radio/CD. An easy way to avoid this is jump onto the cable connectors from another battery (Like you were jump starting it) so that the power to the radio is maintained during the procedure.

I can't jump start by Audi A4 after not having used for 2 months. Any suggestions?


Once the battery goes flat so the immobliser comes on.you need to reset the system as soon as you connect up the jump leads,then try and start it OR charge the battery up in the car (take off one of the leads before you do this)see my tips re alarm reset for VW as they are the same.

WHERE IS THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL ON AN AUDI Q7? WE NEED TO JUMP START A NEIGHBOURS CAR... WE HAVE FOUND THE POSITIVE TERMINAL...


Hi, When jump starting this vehicle make sure that the Q7 is connected first, then connect to the jumper vehicle. Connect 1 lead to the positive on the Q7 and the negative to a good solid body part or engine part. This will then ensure that the vehicle will start on the jumper vehicles battery directly without going through the Q7 flat battery causing the electronics to strain.
Hope this helped.
Thanks

Can i jump start an audi a6 2005


On the 2005 Audi A6 3.2 (6 cylinder) the battery is stored in the right rear trunk, under the trunk floor lid. Note: To jump start the car, you simply raise the engine hood, and look in the upper left corner of the engine compartment, just slightly below the plastic cover. There you will see connections that lead to the battery and are specifically designed for jumping (or charging) the battery. You will need to lift up gently on a reddish brown cover which is protecting the positive terminal. The negative terminal (black) is not covered.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to jump the battery directly. The battery could explode and you could get sulfuric acid on your face and in your eyes, which would be bad. Very bad.

Tried to jump my 2003 galant and the cables would spark when trying to connect negative


Be ceratin you have jumper cables to correct terminals. Also, you may connect both jumper cables to the battery of the car your getting power from (be certain not to let other ends of cables touch) connect the positive lead of car being jumped to the battery's positive terminal, then connect the negative lead to the cars ground, not directly to the negative on the battery. Getting a spark when jumping is very common. You do not want to create the spark at the battery because the fumes from the battery acid can be explosive...... That can go very bad! When removing remove the grounded, to the jumped car, and then carefully remove the rest. Again be certain to not let the leads touch.

Please let me know if this had assited you,

Thanks,
Tom

How to jump start it


To jump start any car, you will need to have either a portable jump starter (that look like the ones found here: http://www.autobarn.com.au/products/7/45/3022812/) or have jumper leads which look like alligator clips.

To use either option, attach one side of the jumper cables to to your battery, then attach the other end to another car battery (or in the case of the portable jump starter, it will be already connected with the unit).

Ensure the correct color cable is attached to the correct battery terminal (metal point on battery), i.e. red to red, black to black.

Caution: Car batteries have a high amperage and can lead to electrocution if you touch both metal points on the battery. Always be careful when doing so and if unsure, do not attempt to do so without assistance from a competent individual.

97 audi a4 no power/battery fuse?


Sounds like either the battery leads are on the wrong way round, or the starter main cable is touching something and shorting to earth. Retrace your steps and check your connection locations.
Either that or its a dead short through the starter. Remove main cable from back of starter and tape up incase of short. then reconnect battery. If ok now then your looking at starter motor.
