Can you bumpstart a DCT?
on: June 07, 2013, 09:34:09 PM
I left my ignition on at a Milan service station and my battery went flat after 5 mins!

I thought of trying to bump start but couldn't work out if it was possible. Couldn't find an answer so had to buy some jump leads and get my brother to assist with a start from his 8 yr old KLV 1000.

Any ideas?

I think it's a bit like an automatic car - jump leads or the bus!
