How do you jump the battery

Well different cars have different proceedures. These can be found in the owners guide of vehicle. You are pretty much always safe going car to car on the positive side of the battery. Then hook the ground up to a large peice of clean, unpainted metal on the engine itself. Or go old school and go straight to the negative between each car. If nothing is shorted out on accident I have never seen any bad reactions from computers or anything.

How do i jump start my monte carlo? the battery is located under the windshield wiper cover

Ground connects LAST. Look around there is a positive attachment somewhere, usually under a red plactic cover, that is the positive hook up, negative to some major metal somewhere on the engine...
No smoking during this event, explosion hazard.

My 1998 Monte Carlo's battery is dead. Where is


The battery is in a compartment in the fender well, but you should have a positive and negative jump start terminals.

Follow the fat (usually RED) cable coming from the Alternator or the one coming from the Starter, they go straight to the battery (+). The ground (-) you can get it from the chassis or the block.

Dont forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!!

Where is the battery in this car

should be a not so big but medium big looking block either on the right or left side of the vehicle under hood. It will have two posts either on the top or side, a silver color. Two cables (one positive, one negative) will be connected to the posts which should also be labeled positive and negative.
