    Connect one end of the Positive(+) cable to the Positive(+) post of the dead battery.
    Connect the other end of the Positive(+) cable to the Positive(+) post of the good battery.
    Connect one end of the Negative(-) cable to the Negative(-) post of the good battery.
    Connect the other end of the Negative(-) cable to a good solid SHINY, NON PAINTED metal part of the engine on the dead car.

    I once had to replace a PCM (computer) in a dodge ram because one of these Mo Rons thought they knew how to jump start a vehicle. Sure was a expensive jump.

    just for your own good , ford lincoln mercury products.......
    dont jump another vehicle with your cables attached to your battery
    disconnect your cables and just let the battery jump start the other .
    ive replaced solinoids and other electrical components after useing my ford truck as a jumper for someones dead vehicle.

    i think the correct method to jump is attach one end of jumper cables to the running engines battery and on the open end of jumper cables have stranded motorist attach the positive clamp to one of his test tickle and the the negative clamp to his tounge and rev motor:big_smile:

    Guys I even know how to jumpstart or kickstart a car BUT, NEVER do that with a hybrid. It could and probably would kill you. As I own one, I had to try and convince a wrecker gentleman once that he couldn't do it. He wouldn't listen to me, so I called the dealer and my mechanic, Robbie, up and had him tell him that whatever he did, he was NOT to try and jumpstart my car.

    Even the EMT's, should I be in an accident, I hope they know not to touch the car, especially with a jaws of life, if I survive or not. I continually find that a lot of people are not educated to a hybrid's electrical capacity. (even EMT's)

    Take care.

    LOL, yes those are around too. But I think the price of moonshine unless you are making it yourself is more than gas these days, so I'll keep mine.

    On the car receiving the jump I dont think connect the negative to the negative battery terminal. I believe you should connect the negative lead to the chassis or a componet on the same ground path to the chassis for the sake of not frying a computeror one of the many sensors on today's engines.:smile2:

    Well I think Cheryl is on the mark for the future. I'm looking forward to Hybrid NASCAR. Think of all the money they will save on tires. "Gentleman start yer engines" & you don't hear anything......Go Junior!, Go Junior!

    I believe on most new cars there is actually a terminal to hook the cable (+) up to.This prevents frying the computer.Usually it is under a little red cover at least it is on my Chev Truck.It would be good advice to read the owners manual instructions for jump starting so you don't damage expensive components.Thanks Cheryl for the hybrid warning as I wouldn't have ever thought about it.Hybrid jumping is one of our favorite local sports down here so now I guess I'll have to quit that because its hazardous.:eek:oooh: :roll_eyes: :smile2: :big_smile: :lol:
