    So in a couple of your videos now you’ve talked about not wanting to get cheap things (like jumper cables or the channel lock) but would you be able to talk about what a decent price would be? I know videos age and prices change. But I wouldn’t know what is super cheap and what is super expensive. Thank you for all you’re doing! You’re helping so many people in so many ways.

    This happened to me last week. Tried to jumpstart it with the 2nd gear in and others pushing and it wouldn't budge. Just in case people run a manual car. You just let go of the clutch after you get a good head start with other people pushing. Ended up having my father do this for me since I don't know how things work and he said it was a pain in the ass. He said next time it happens I would have to do it,but he never showed me how. Joke is on him.

    i remember the first time i jumped a car. i was a high school junior and a popular kid's battery was dead, he left his lights on. no one ever taught me how to jump a car, just was guessing to connect the same colors. i connected everything to my battery first. then to scare the kid and his girlfriend i touched the other end together to make a spark, it was pretty funny, it did surprise me too. then i used the negative instead of a ground on the dead battery. i remember how good it felt to help them out, they were so thankful. Ive jumped a lot more cars than i thought i would have to, a lot of people just dont have jumper cables, so i always had a chance to help since i always had mine. but never did know i was supposed to connect to a ground and to connect the dead battery first. its almost exactly 10 years later and i finally learned how to do it correctly. THANK YOU!

    Do not ever leave the vehicle running when you jump the dead car. You can blow both computers. I've only seen that three times in 20 years but it does happen. Your cables are very light so it's harder to do. If you ground the cable,on the body, the currant has to travel from there to the battery to the engine ground. I always use a clean connection on the engine.I've seen two batteries explode from incorrect jump methods as you pointed out. Currant flows from negative to positive, not the other way.
