Is It Bad To Jump Start A Truck With A Car? (Will It Hurt Either Vehicle?)
If you have a truck that needs to be jump started and you only have a smaller car available to do so you might be wondering if that is ok or if jump starting such a large vehicle with a smaller one will damage the smaller car (or battery) or not.
It will not damage the smaller car at all nor will it hurt the larger truck to be jumped by the smaller vehicle.
You will have to rev up the engine of the smaller car but that is typical with the “donor” car anyway.
Anytime you are jumping a vehicle you will have to be careful and connect the jumper cables properly but as long as you do that then there is nothing wrong with using a smaller car to jumpstart a truck.
