NO. don' t set your dodge on fire...if by hotwire, you mean connect the smaller red wire to the fat red wire then touch the purple momentarily?...that is dangerous and we stopped doin' that as kids~...get it started and then take it in...try not to set anything on fire~

Just call a tow truck or join AAA- why mess around to save a few bucks?
