2007 Toyota Highlander Question about the Car not starting


Topic starter

Hi, I was jump starting my 2007 Toyota highlander car because the battery was low. I put the jump starter in and it made a loud noise like the noise when someone breaks into your car. it kept making that noise so then I took the jump starter out because I thought I was damaging the car. Can you please let me know if I should continue to jump start the car again? What is the problem? Why is it making that loud noise when I jump start the car. The lights turned on but when I turned the Key the car didn't start and the loud noise was on, but I quickly took the jump starter out so not sure if I should have waited. Let me know thank you!

The loud noise is probably there to let you know you connected it incorrectly. 

Red clip should go to the red terminal. Black clip should go to a ground. A ground is a bare piece of exposed metal on the car. 

read the manual. It will tell you something similar to what I am saying.
