 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.
  
 +It will be easiest on the system to combine the batteries and allow the starter battery to come up a 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 a mechanical connection and power will flow both ways.
