not so much spikes, but the ECU relies on sensors.
when they stop reporting voltages, (and they will), the ECU stops sending ignition signals (spark to cylinders).
The battery does more than just yield electricity. It also shorts AC, spikes and transients to ground. Removing the battery from the circuit allows those spikes and transients to travel around, endangering every semiconductor circuit in the car. Additionally, removing the battery can burn out the diodes in the alternator. If disconnecting the battery interferes with the voltage regulator's control voltage input, it's even possible for the alternator to put out hundreds of volts, frying everything!

Computerman is right ... the car CAN run without the battery, but it will not run safely. will start to break up etc (which is what was happening). checked the alternator charging rate... its good so far.
the battery box is already sorted out bolted down properly dis time. (i hope) READY FOR NEXT EVENT :mrgreen:

So based on everything said above, a jump start is a bad idea?

+ to +, - to earth on car being jumped
if you really concerned you can buy 'intelligent' jumper cables that prevent spikes
also, never rev the engine of the jump-car

Bredderman, yuh now have the owners of the barriers looking back at the contract and going to "load we".

Nex ting another insurance spy start to squeal. But you get your 5 seconds of fame to last a lifetime - especially when they want you to tell them how to make the move to do the X-games stunt. Thought only BMX could do that.

.


just have to ensure the barriers are interlocked properly so when a car hits, they do their job, rather than scattering

such limits are compromised when the system itself is not installed properly
do you REALLY want to go down this road?
