You may have to expose the battery terminals due the fact of plastic covers on the newer vehicles. If the battery terminals are already exposed, you will find one terminal with a red wire while the other is black, (usually). The terminal witht the red wire is considered the positive terminal, which will match a plus sign. The red jumper cable must be attached to this terminal, and the other red jumper cable must be attached to the other battery with a red wire. Then, follow suit with the black wire, this is the negative wire, hence the minus sign. This works if you have another vehicle to jump your battery from.

If you are using a battery charger, you will have to connect the reds to reds and the blacks to blacks using the aligator clips at the ends.

The car just clicks and doesn't start.


Hello,

You may need to drive the car back to where you bought the battery. You may have a faulty battery or faulty alternator. When the car is running it should be charging from about 13.8amps and above. If the battery is completely depleted, a jump pack will not be able to jump start the vehicle.

Hope that helps.

How do i jump start another car with a saturn vue?


Most newer automobiles like your Vue cannot jump start another car because of the circuit protection built into the SUV.
You must disconnect your battery in order to jump start another car with the battery you have otherwise it will to allow you to jump start anything.
This could lead to your own Vue having a drained battery..
Most would recommend a battery eliminator that is available at most auto stores for this type of situation.

Jump starting a car with an immobiliser


use another vehicle and start by connecting the jump leads from the negative on one battery to the negative on the other and do the same with the positive, the positive is the one with the cross or the red wires. dont worry if u get a little spark when connecting the jump leads its perfically normal, then simply start the other vehicle up and leave it running for aruond 5 minuates then try starting your can.(you may need to rev the other car up a bit to raise the power being transfered) be very careful not to put the jump leads on the wrong terminals.
i hope this advice helps u,

F150 supercrew cab won't start,,battery good


If you're using your truck to jump start another dead battery in a different car..your truck should be runing when you do that.....

If you leave your truck turned off and are jump starting another car/truck that way..you are drawing your CCA (cold cranking amps) way down, and really shortening the life of your batery..you'll be needing to get jump started yourslf pretty soon.
