Need to Boost Battery from Trunk..is it Safe??
It is bloody cold here now and my 1995 318i would not start up last night when I tried to leave from work. I had the engine block heater plugged it, but I think the electrical outlet was faulty, so engine was dead cold in -35 C temps. I was able to stretch my extension cord to reach a functioning plug in the meantime, hopefully the engine will be warmed up today. I was going to get a battery boost from another co-worker, but I broke the hood latch handle, so now I can't get under the hood.
Can I safely try to get my car started by directly boosting the battery in the trunk, and what should I avoid doing that could damage some of the car's electronics?
