How to jump start 2004-2008 Chrysler Crossfire
Learn how to jump start Chrysler Crossfire. To jumpstart a Crossfire you will need either a jump box or you can use another car. When you jump start a dead Crossfire battery, first identify the positive and negative.
These instructions apply to models such as Crossfire made during these years: 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008.
What you will need:
To safely jump start your Chrysler Crossfire follow these instructions. Ensure that keys are removed from the ignition when you connect the cables.
Turn off ignition
Remove key from the ignition. Modern cars are very sensitive to voltage and Chrysler Crossfire is no exception. To avoid electrical problems, start by removing the key from the ignition.
Open the hood. Locate the hood release underneath the dash. Pull the lever until you hear the hood pop open. Next, you need to release the hood safety latch at the front of the hood.
Locate Jump Start Terminals
Locate the terminals where you can jump start your Chrysler Crossfire.
Connect Postive Jumper Cable
Attach the red (positive) cable to the positive terminal. If you are using another car to jump start your Chrysler Crossfire, next you will need to connect the positive terminal on the helper car.
Connect Neg. Jumper Cable
Connect the black (negative) cable to an engine ground point. If you are using another car to jump start your Chrysler Crossfire, connect the other end of the black cable to the battery of the other car. If at all possible, avoid connecting the negative cable to the negative terminal of your Chrysler Crossfire battery. Instead, use a bare metal on the car frame such as strut bolts.
If you are using a jump box you are now ready to start your Crossfire. If you are using jumper cables to connect to a car with a good battery, continue to the next step.
Just Start Using Jumper Cables
Start the helper car and let it run for a few minutes. Next, start your Crossfire. If all you hear is a click when you try to start your car, check the cable connection points. Allow the dead battery on your car to charge for a little bit longer then try again.
It is best practice to connect the negative cable to bare metal instead of connecting it directly to the neg. battery terminal. If a bare metal in not available, the neg. battery terminal can be used.
