    Do not use jumper cables. You risk damaging critical electrical components.

    Just buy a new battery before all this jump starting damages the electronics

    STOP JUMPSTARTING YOUR CAR. You're lucky if you didn't permanently damage something already. These cars are very sensitive to voltage issues. If your battery is a few years old, replace it.

    You guys are sooo rich you can buy a Ferrari but not wealthy enough to buy a $120 battery every 3 years? Get a new battery and replace it every 3 years. Or, keep jumping it and then come on complaining your dash is funky. That $1000 repair is so much less expensive than a battery.

    Owned my 360 for 8 years now and it NEVER doesn't start when I turn the key.
