Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
You can connect to any of the two battery's as they are both on the same circuit ,
Below is a link to a diagram on how to connect up to a battery using another car .
Red is positive (+) and the black is the Negative (-)what ever you do do not cross the leads could cause expensive damage to the electrical system ..
Attach the red, positive cable clamp to the positive (+) battery terminal of the dead battery.
You want a solid connection to the battery terminal, which may require some initial wiggling of the clamps.
Attach the red, positive cable clamp on the other side of the jumper cables to the functioning vehicle’s positive (+) battery terminal.
Connect the black, negative cable clamp to the working battery’s negative (-) battery terminal.
Do not connect the black, negative cable clamp to the dead battery.
Instead, attach that clamp to an unpainted part on the engine block. This will help ensure a safe jump.
Now start the car with the good battery and wait a few minutes then try and start your car ,if you just get a click,check connections and wait a few minutes more, this will give the dead battery time to take on a charge , then try again.
