Question about Chevrolet HHR
Having a large draw on the jumper usually indicates that the problem is in the main feed of the electrical system. I'd begin by checking the battery (charge and have it load tested). From there, check your positive cable that goes to the starter to make sure it has not touched and burned onto an exhaust component.
It's also possible to have either an internal short inside the starter or alternator...Also check main sub wiring for grounding (like the larger wire that goes to the back of the alternator). Though the problem was defined as "huge" most times a large short is far easier to find than an intermittent or slight draw from one of the smaller systems. Therefore, it should be relatively easy to find and repair.
