My Honda Civic hybrid won't start. No interior lights, no power. Can I jump start the battery under the hood? Not sure since it is a hybrid and has two? batteries. I did not drive it for 3days. It seems to be jerky/sluggish on acceleration for the past few weeks
Yes, you can jump the 12v battery from another 12v source. Ensure you are using the jumper cables correctly (+ to + and - to -) and you shouldn't have any issues. Your suggestion of the vehicle being jerky/sluggish would have nothing to do with the 12v battery system. This would have to do with the gas engine itself, or with the high voltage battery system/electric motor.
