Mark :

Hello, my name is Mark and I will try help you with this.

Mark :

If your battery is totally flat then using jump leads and another car will restore power to your car.

Mark :

However, I would advise you to remove your battery from the vehicle and slow charge it for 12 hours minimum before trying to start it.

Mark :

When the battery is really flat there is a risk of a voltage spike damaging control units.
