Just left my lights on - what a dope.

Can you jump an R33 from the front? I know the battery is in the back, but there is something on the left side of the engine bay as you look from the front with a cover on it with the plus and minus signs.

Yep by the fuse/relay box there is a jump point. Should say on the fuse box where to put the leads. I would do it from the battery though, ive always found it to work better.

Yes you can mate. If you remove that plastic lid it reveals a positive terminal with two bolts, place the positive lead on the raised bolt and connect the negative lead to the negative terminal which is affixed to the car body just above the plastic cover. Jump away!

No leads as it turns out - stuck working, and so RAC on their way.... how hard can it be?
Thanks for the fast responses as always though.
Teach me for being a plank - I was just double checking the headlight and main beam are two different bulbs and then forgot to turn them off.
How stupid can you get?

This is the reason I have to go for the bonnet, Dave is right though direct is best.

Don't you have a lights on buzzer?
Trouble is, when the turbo timer in mine is running it beeps loudly. I've left my lights on a couple of times, but fortunately I've noticed and switched them off before leaving the car.

My Dad, however, was not so lucky yesterday - and had to get a jump! :)
