Good morning (or afternoon for you east coasters)!
My girl fiend killed her corrola's battery last night, and my manly moment of jump starting her car with my 97 taco ended with "i'll just call AAA in the morning."
wtf? Bottom line, the jump was unsuccessful. I did it exactly as per the manual, and as I've always jumped other cars:
start on dead battery (+), connect to good battery (+), then connect good battery (-) to a ground on dead car....
so AAA pulls up this morning, and does the same EXCEPT they actually ended by connecting to the dead battery's (-) terminal- and not grounding- something i've been taught NOT to do.
in the words of Tim the Toolman Taylor. "EEhhhhrrruhhh?"
I let the cars sit, connected appropriately for a minute.... revved up taco just a tad.... and the corrola ignition resulted in CLIKCLIKCLIKCLIKCLIKCLIKCLICK (super rapid)..... waited another minute and retry. same deal.
