jumpstarting through Vue
Hey There. Walk anyone understand if you have the right to use the VUE to jumpstart one more car? mine fiancees vehicle is dead and also we desire to jump start it however we can"t discover the an unfavorable terminal top top the VUE battery. Anyone know where that is? sorry if this is a dumb question.Thank you!!

The an unfavorable terminal is in plain sight, a few inches away from the confident terminal.You shouldn"t be making use of it anyway. ~ above the VUE, hook the negative terminal up to a rigid part of the frame in the engine bay, and the positive terminal to the red component on the battery. ~ above the dead vehicle hook the terminals up making use of both wires.(Thats the way I to be taught :-P, could still occupational using the cable on terminal an approach instead of the frame)
hey, burnout. Where in plain view? I"m an idiot and can"t discover it.Also, don"t you have it backwards because that starting? friend ground that on the auto you"re trying come start?Thx for the response.

It"s "+" top top the running auto to come "+" on the dead car, and also then "-" on the running auto to a ground that"s at least 3" away from the battery on the dead car.The an unfavorable terminal is under the plastic battery cover on the VUE.

Owners hands-on has thorough a description.The factor for grounding to the framework instead the the battery is to avoid sparks from maybe igniting gasses around the battery.On the VUE over there is a confident terminal next to the Fuse box. Remove the FB cover and hook the optimistic terminal there... The negative terminal have to ground to the frame. I believe there is a steel engine lift allude (atleast top top the 4 cyl) the you can hook the neg cable to. (looks prefer a black steel tab through a hole in it) as soon as you effort to begin the car if that doesn"t appear to be gaining power check the an unfavorable cables to be sure they space grounding.When hooking increase cables it should go positive an initial (pos bad then pos good) negative next (neg negative then neg good). Once cables are on begin the "good" car. Be certain that all lights radios and also electronics space off to offer max power to beginning the various other car, and if you can turn every point off in the dead car too. This will safeguard the electronics from surges also. The battery on the other vehicle may take it a min to fee or it might start right away depending on how dead the battery is. If the battrey is really dead you may want rev the engine increase on the good car the do it fee better. Host the engine at bout 2000 RPMs. Yes no must rev the engine any higher it won"t rate things up. This is exactly how ive always been called to carry out it.Also watchout for the fans they may start without warning and can damage the cables and tear themselves up and also possibly the radiator if the cables acquire in the dorn place.Hope this helpsDj
