When attempting to boost,or "jump start" another vehicle from yours,1st connect the cables as usual battery to battery,but when you connect the cables to your battery,do not connect the ground cable to your battery,connect the ground or "black" cable to a hard ground such as a motor mount, or an altenator "bolt" not the ground on the battery. you can find a ground point on your vehicle other than the battery. any hard surface that's a body or engine ground will do. yes you can damage your altenator by doing a car to car,or battery to battery boost. you can short a diode in the altenaor on your car,but there is a solution. when you boost another car from yours, only connect the red,or positive cable to your battery. the black cable,or negative cable to a ground such as a motor mount,or a body ground.thank you for choosing

The cooling fan on my 2005 suzuki iger has stopped coming on. Fan motor and thermo switch checks ok.

Most of these problems on Suzuki products are ground connections. Physically ground the motor, possibly using a set of jumper cables to see if that's the problem. Hunt down the ground wire and replace if true.

I took my 2005 dodge caravan to the mechanic to fix a ligth now it wont start it just makes a clicking noies when you try to start it the battery appears be fine when the key is put in. they told me it...

I know they're a mechanic, but they could be trying to cheat you out of your money. To verify this, you can jump start your car using another car. Using jumper cables, connect the positive(red) to the other positive on the other battery, and the black(ground/negative) to the other battery. Don't disconnect the batteries from the cars. Start up the car that works, then start the other car. If and when it starts, disconnect the jumper cables. If your not sure how to do this, i recommend you have someone else do it for you (not the mechanic).
