Having problems with your 2005 Kia Sportage ?
Forgot lights on. Trying to jump start - no success. Using a booster pack which I plugged in to charge all night.
When using a booster of the type you are make sure you have a good clean and tight connectio where you are hooking it to the battery. If you do not have a good connetion the jump will not work , because no current is going from booster to your car. If your battery is too dead a jump will not work either the battery would have to be pulled charged and checked. The battery may have to be replaced. If this is the original battery and the car is a 2005 the battery is about due for replacement.
Occasionally when a battery is older and it is been discharged to a low level it is difficult to jump, be sure the booster pack is fully charged hook it up to the battery but this time hook up the black cable to a engine bracket or metal part on the engine that looks like it will be a good solid ground connection, let the booster sit now for about 3 to 5 minutes then make sure all accessories including the interior light which comes on when the door is opened is off, then try starting, if the black or negative cable connection is not good enough use the negative terminal of the battery but keep in mind it is recommended to use a solid ground on an engine bracket to jump all vehicles.
