Can I jump start my car from the negative side only?


Is it possible for me to jump start my 2006 Dodge Stratus using the negative cable only? The battery is tucked away and I cannot access it, but I do see a negative jump start button. Please help, because my car won't start. Thank you!!

Where is the computer reset button on a 2006 dodge stratus

What computer are you talking about , engine computer. It doesn't matter because there is no reset button. You need a scan tool or disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 or 10 min. Is the vehicle check engine light on , is that what's going on here ? You can try an reset the computer, but if the computer system has a problem it will come back on. An if the light is on you need to have it scanned for codes.

Thank you for contacting

The key lock/unlock for doors are powered by the batteries in the remote, while the ignition key draws its energy from the vehicle via induction. Since the battery is dead you are having this problem. You need to call assistance from the nearby auto shop or a locksmith. I guess you don't have any other option.

How do i jump my 1997 dodge stratus

  • Ensure your Stratus's ignition is in the "Off" position, and turn off anything that uses battery power, such as lights, radio and heater blower. Park the booster car close enough to the dead car that you can connect the jumper cables to both batteries, but make sure the two vehicles aren't touching. Connect one red (+) clamp of the cables to the booster battery's positive terminal. Connect the other red clamp to the Stratus' "Remote Terminal." The terminal is located next to the air filter assembly, and is marked with a "+" and the word "Positive." Dodge uses these remote terminals to reduce the risk of explosion caused by sparks near the battery. Connect one of the black (-) cable clamps to the negative terminal on the booster battery. Connect the other black clamp to the negative "Remote Terminal" on the Stratus, located on the opposite side of the air filter assembly from the positive terminal. It is a marked with a "-" and the word "Negative."Start the booster car, if not already running, and apply slight pressure to the gas pedal to make it idle faster. Wait a few minutes and attempt to start the Stratus. If it cranks a little, but still won't start, continue charging the battery. Once the Stratus starts, leave it running and disconnect the jumper cables in reverse order of the way you attached them.

    How to replace a idle air control valve

    Get the part and match it up to the valve on the throttle body. Remove the attaching bolts and remove the valve. Unplug it of course. Installation is reverse of removal. Remove the negative cable while you do this. Install the battery cable and by removing the negative, you'll re-set the ECM as well.

    Have a 97 Stratus with a 2.0, alternator is good, new battery, showing code for O2 sensor and 47 - which states voltage to low. Has drained battery, jump car and will start but as soon as I take the jumper...

    The alternator is not good.Check the negative battery cable for corrosion. The o2 sensor is probably shot. It would run if the alternator was good.

    2001 Dodge Stratus WOn't Start

    Proper way to jump your car is to attach the jumper cable clamps to the marked posts on your car...on the vehicle that is jumping you, attach the positive clamp to the positive post and the negative clamp to some piece of metal on the vehicle...can even be a screw as long as it sparks a little (grounding). Don't connect the clamp to the negative post.

    Where is negative connection for battery on 2006 dodge charger srt8

    Also, to add to some mild confusion, the terminals under the hood on the charger are just there for a jump, thus there is only a positive terminal. The battery is actually stored in the trunk next to the spare.
