 Self-jumpstarting means jumpstarting one's own vehicle without the use of another vehicle. ​ The most common way to do this is by [[electrical:​12v:​alternator|combining]] house and chassis batteries. Self-jumpstarting means jumpstarting one's own vehicle without the use of another vehicle. ​ The most common way to do this is by [[electrical:​12v:​alternator|combining]] house and chassis batteries.
  
-===== solenoids ===== +It will be easiest on the system to combine the batteries and allow the starter battery to come up bit instead of immediately attempting to start 
-Solenoids/​relays ​will automatically self-jumpstart assuming there is enough voltage in the starter battery to energize the solenoid. It is mechanical connection and power will flow both ways+

 [[electrical:​12v:​alternator#​isolators|Solid state isolators]] are diode based and will not allow power to flow from the house battery to the starter battery. ​ Therefore they cannot be used to self-jumpstart. [[electrical:​12v:​alternator#​isolators|Solid state isolators]] are diode based and will not allow power to flow from the house battery to the starter battery. ​ Therefore they cannot be used to self-jumpstart.
