Yeah if it clicks its probably a flat battery or bad connection...you might stuffed your battery in the process too. Pull out a battery from somewhere else and see if she starts. if so then you solved your problem.

IIRC the CRT LMP is only rated at 15 amps so i doubt it would have done any notciable damage to the battery

Firstly you will need a fully charged car battery.

1) Connect the end of one jumper lead to the +Ve post on the booster battery. Then connect the other end of the lead to the +Ve on your battery

2) Connect one end of the other jumper lead to the -Ve post on the booster battery. Then connect the other end of the lead to a bare metal surface on your car (such as the engine) Or if your lazy to the -Ve post on your battery
