My 2002s needs a jump. Owner manual says connect jump cable to negative terminal of dead battery. I thought you were to connect to ground area!!!

The negative cable is the ground area. If you follow the negative cable to the end it will either be connected to the frame or the engine block. It is the source of ground for the battery.

Dodge ram 08 does the ground wire hook to the yellow battery wire

Hi Joanne:
Look at the top of the battery. One post will have a - (negative) and the other will have a + (positive). The ground is negative and will have a cable that is attached to the engine block or vehicle frame. As long as ground is connected to the negative terminal you've got it right.

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.

After jump starting my 2004 gmc sierra the heat/ac panel and controls wont work

Blown fuse/ relay. check the fuses in the fuse panels. Remember when jump starting any vehicle from 1992 forward, to not hook the negative cable to the battery itself. hook it to a bolt or something on the frame inside the engine compartment. You probably have a bolt or rod sticking up close to te battery that says "ground here." or "place negative cable here" when jumping. Most people never pay attention to it because we were taught all of our lives to connect the negative cable to the battery so we dont look for it.

JaBLussier@Hanover .comWhere do jumper cables go for charging a battery on a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville?

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
OK the best way to do this so you dont mess up the electronics in the vehical are as follows
First connect the 2 cables to the vehicle's battery red on positive and black on negative..
Now on the other vehicle the one needing charging. place the red cable on the positive battery post and take the black (negative) cable and place it on the negative battery post
now make sure the key is turned off in the vehicle that needs charging
now start the other vehicle first and leave run for about 30- 45 seconds then attempt to start the vehicle that is needing a charge once it has started quickly remove the cables off of the vehicles and you are good to go simply leave the car running to let the battery charge for at least 10 min ok
Hope this is very helpful for you please do me a favor and give this solution a rating this rating helps our asker's get the best possible solutions

Where is the starter located on a 2001 mustang

the starter is on the driver's side of the engine. There may be an oxygen sensor bracket in the way to accessing it. If so, remove the harness to the sensor using your hands and unbolt the bracket from the engine using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. if you have to follow the battery lead.
