Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Can I help a friend jumpstart his Volvo? I think my battery is behind the right headlight, yes? But do standard jumper cables work? Or does the whole thing endanger my car? I see on these forums that it is not recommended to get a jumpstart yourself but this seems different. Thanks, Anne

No, do not jump start another car. It is not just a matter of potentially damaging the electrical components of your or your friend's cars. It is a safety issue -- batteries can explode if the cables are not connected correctly. Let a professional do it. Tow trucks are cheap.
