Can I use my 12 volt battery to jump start a gasoline engine car? If so, does the Chevy Bolt have to be on and running? Appreciate advice.
The section in the manual begins with:Jumping is covered beginning on page 304.
As mentioned in the previous post, the manual warns that any accessories left on while jumping could be damaged.
Quite a different use case To be honest, I would never risk it the other way around. First because of the small auxiliary battery that was not sized for starting an ICE and second because of the huge amount of of electronics that live in the car. I have been asked to jump start another car from my plug in hybrid in the past and I have politely refused (after explaining myself, of course).If the 12-volt battery has run down, try to use another vehicle and some jumper cables to start your vehicle.
Yes and yes. I’ve done it; the car my Bolt replaced has a dying battery and I needed to move it. Started right up.Can I use my 12 volt battery to jump start a gasoline engine car? If so, does the Chevy Bolt have to be on and running? Appreciate advice.
