Hi guys tried jump starting an mx5 the other day and as far as im aware i did everything by the book
red from the dead battery to my positive
black from the negative mx5 to my neg battery. tried to find somewhere on the car to earth it on the mx5 but there was nowhere.
anyway nothing happened but a shit load of sparks and the leads actually set on fire. They were definately 100000% the right way round so whats gone wrong? no fuses have gone or anything and the mx5 did absolutely nothin!
my car was running when i did all this should i not have had it running or something. be good to know for future reference theres no point me having jump leads if i dont know how to use them properly ha!!!
