If the voltage regulator is built into the alternator and the alternator is fvcked, this would be a valid way of making it stay running. But the hoods up and short leash of jumper cables makes this stupid AF for anything other than moving across a parking lot.
@A Deformed Penis, or they could buy a portable jumper from Walmart use it to get to an auto shop then return the portable jump kit if they’re just poor
@BigJohnson86, Doesn't autozone have jumpers available as part of their loaner tool program? Pretty sure it's free to borrow from them, that'd be less of a hassle than the Walmart return counter lol.
@A Deformed Penis, did this with a jumper box in my old truck. Alternator took a dump. The jumper was enough to keep the pump running for the 2 miles I had to go. I strapped the hood Dow though.
I'm honestly amazed some people can even dress themselves
I'm more amazed that they can drive without moving the wheels.
Ah yes, local morons
Someone does not know how cars work
@Fairy Squad Mother, I think it’s one way to work
omg that's f:cken genius
Adapt, Improvise, and overcome!
If it's stupid and it works, it ain't stupid.
