Grandland X not starting after trying Jumpstart

Hi,

I’m new to this forum so sorry if I posted this in the wrong section

I was trying to use my Grandland X to jump start another car in my household however when I popped the positive battery flap up to make a connection with the jump leads the grand land x started to flash hazard lights and now the grand land x will not start!

Does anyone know what this issue could be?

Thanks

Hi,

It will be due to the new Technology its advised not to jump start with these cars as it can cause issues with the computer.
Your best bet is to disconnect the battery and leave it for a while. Then reconnect the battery and it should hopefully start up.

Hi thanks,

It is now starting hopefully it stays that way, I will find another vehicle to jump start the car that is dead.

Thanks for your help

Its more than likely it confused the computer and wouldnt start as it was protecting the car. Good to hear its working now.
