Thanks... now I've got to go and review my Jump Starting protocol for Winter again. You've got me all Paranoid.

OK now I feel better. I'll have to look for that Upper Radiator Support you are referring to as a good option for a Negative Post. (I've had varying success clamping onto the Nut for the LF Strut) Not sure my 2003 has this area clearly marked. Maybe marked later after people started having these little accidents with their IONs.
