This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP Curiculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Homesteading

In this Badge Bit you will learn to jump start a vehicle. Sometimes a light has been left on overnight or you have a draw somewhere in your funky farm vehicle.


Here are some videos for your inspiration:






To complete this BB minimum requirements are:

        - The vehicle starts
        - The battery begins to charge(voltage changes)
        - The voltage is shown before and after the jump start (with a voltage meter)

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must post pictures of the following:

        - Picture showing the dead battery voltage with a volt meter
        - Picture of the vehicles with jumper cables connected (or mostly connected if it's safer/easier to get the picture that way)
        - Picture of the dead vehicle running (please show the instrument cluster)
        - Picture of the new voltage of the battery on the running vehicle

Or post a 2 minute video of the above work.

Approved BB submission
The Kubota hasn't run for a while and between that and the cold weather, the battery doesn't have enough juice to crank it.  So I jump started it.

Picture showing the dead battery voltage with a volt meter:


Video showing it won't crank:


Video of the vehicles with jumper cables connected:


Video of the dead vehicle running (part of the video image is obscured to cover jump vehicle license plate):


Picture of the new voltage of the battery on the running vehicle:
