What is her battery and starting system draw, max at start? You can test this with a clamp-on ammeter.If ever you See Standard Car Jumper Cables they Look so Fat and Thick.
My Sister got a Volkswagen Jetta and it came with Jumper Cables.
They are so Thin so what am I not Understanding?
What is the AWG of Standard Car Jumper Cables?
As I touched on in #11 also the same applies when changing a battery, always disconnect the negative lead first and reconnect positive first.When using jumper cables, always hook up the hot (positive) red connection first followed by the black one afterward. If you do it the other way around the positive will short on any metal of the car being the negative is tied to the car chassis. Never connect jumper cables while the engine is running. This is very dangerous. After they are connected, verify the jumper cables are routed away from any moving engine parts.
That can be a catch 22. If the car with the dead battery cannot hold a charge you will not be able to restart it after removing the cables. I like that article. I never thought about attaching the negative of the car with the dead battery to the engine chassis. I always connected it to the battery terminal itself. So maybe it is better to connect it to the engine chassis. I never did it that way but maybe it is safer like the article states? Does anyone have any advice about that?Do you believe that there is a good reason to connect the negative lead to the chassis away from the battery?
I was told that it was to make sure that no sparks occurred next to the battery and ignited any hydrogen, when the first lead is removed, but the instructions say to stop both engines first, so there will be no hydrogen to ignite.
