first the newer vehicles arent ment to jump off other vehicles from battery to battery,they have seperate terminals for jump starting.try another battery,if that dont start it,you may have burned up the starter,alt, or other electeral componets. rember to never jump off your battery.

NEVER jump start another vehicle with yours unless it has seperate terminals off the battery for jump starting.eather shorted your battery or blew your alt.
