Can't find a car community so,...|
Two nights ago I gave my car a boost to take it out of the garage since they were cleaning the floors. The battery has been dead and needs to slow recharge.
Last night I tried to give it a boost but in the poor light I think I did something wrong which then made it impossible to boost.
I applied the red-positive and black-negative to the car I was boosting. I then accidentally applied the black to positive but realized before applying the red to negative. I took the black off, then applied red to positive and black to negative on the working car. Car I wanted to boost didn't go. At one point the starter gave a stutter but not enough to go all the way. Otherwise I just got clicks.
Did I screw up, or is it just bad timing with the starter? My mom thinks I just need to air out the hood because that's what my dad did when it didn't work, but I can't consult with him.
