so as it states I was trying to jump a dead jetta at work Monday and we let the jumpers sit a minute and I revved up to like the typical 2800 to 3k to get a strong charge and all of a sudden everything on the dash started flickering on me? I haven't had any issues like this before. are these cars that close on amperage they cant jump other cars? I noticed the positive stud is pretty small. ive jumped my buddies Subaru one time without issue.. just trying to get any info as to what happened. I know for a fact the jumpers were junk and once we got a second set and a second car the jetta fired up.

(reason for thread I was in the hid warning thread and drew concern about the amperage draws and such)

The electronics in the new cars are really sensitive and I hate to say I would probably not jump anyone with my Challenger. There should be a jump procedure in your owners manual, as doing it wrong will cause issues.
