I just bought the correct battery from the net. But all of a sudden problem has arisen.
Upon trying to unlock my car, the lock has decided that it isn't working. I suspect the lock is faulty, but the upshot being that I cannot get into my car at the moment. Until I am able to restore power to the central locking, I cannot get to the bonnet catch release.
Instead, I phone the engineer who normally deals with the cars, and he said the best thing could be to jump start from the starter motor. As a non-electrician, I would like some help. I have taken some pictures of what I can see underneath the car, and where the started motor is behind the bell housing.
So given that my extension leads are long enough, would someone be able to offer insight as to where I can attach the cables? I know that attaching the jump leads to the starter can be risky for the electrics, but currently its my only option.
If this is viable, could I have a couple of colored rings on any of the above images? I'd rather not blow up my electrics if I happen to put them in the wrong place. I've currently got the car on a jack and stand.
EDIT: With reference to jump starting I merely want to use the battery of the other car to charge the electrical system a bit and then unlock the car, not to actually start the car.
Depending if the above is far too risky, then I understand entirely. Perhaps I should just phone the RAC and surrender the wallet. Not that I am sure they could do anything about it other than drag the car to the.... .... ... Kwik fit.
