im rather embarrased to ask this question.... but how do i jumpstart my truck???? its an M1009 with the two 12v batteries wired in series. I just replaced the starter, it had a major short and meltdown, and i think it drained my battery hardcore. after replacing the starter i started the truck, but noticed my gen 1 light was on full bright, and got brighter as i reved the engine, which it didnt do before. i think the Gen1 light matches with the front battery which is the one that is the lowest voltage. i drove it down the block to another friends house, shut it off, and when i tried to start it, all i got was starter relay click. now, after trying to jumpstart it, even the dash lights barley come on. now heres the funny thing, i think i was trying to jumpstart the truck wrong. i didnt set the cables on fire or anything, but when i tried jumping it with my old honda accord, the voltage on my truck batteries actually dropped... alot. the front battery dropped from 11 volts to 5 then to 3 volts. the rear went from 12.5 to 12 volts. im thinking the short in the starter at the very least drained the front battery, and maybe fried it. when i was jumping it i had the positive cable attatched to the rear battery positive terminal, and the negative cable attached to the front battery negative terminal. but my dad brought up that the 12 volt alternator wouldnt work on a 24v setup with the batteries connected as they are. do i need to disconnect the batteries from each other and charge them one at a time?
