2009 Hyundai Genesis: Battery Correction
September 29, 2009
A few notes of correction from the Genesis post from earlier. The battery is in fact located in the trunk, not under the shock tower somewhere.
Also, a negative lead is not necessary to boost another car. Any piece of exposed metal will do the trick, as several commenters have already pointed out. I've boosted cars using my personal car many times, and it has a rear-mounted battery and a front-mounted positive battery terminal. I attach the negative to a fatter-than-usual bolt conveniently placed nearby.
The Genesis' set-up actually makes getting or giving a boost easier since it doesn't matter which way the car is pointing when it dies.
