Also worth noting, do NOT leave the donor car running when you try to start yours...it can blow the diodes in their alternator.

+1, easiest way.
Never heard of turning off the donor car before. I've probably jumped cars maybe 20 times in my life and never done this.

These are diodes in the voltage regulator?

As desperate as this sounds, in comedy, 'likes' and 'views,' 'friends,' and 'retweets' really help. If I've ever helped you, please help me by friending, liking, viewing, and retweeting. It makes others think I have a following...it'll take you a minute or less. If you could, I'd really appreciate it!
