Jumping the Car

(2004 Acura MDX)
in Castro Valley, CA on December 23, 2009
When I tried to jump the car, the lights on the meters just flickered and made a weird noise. The car battery died because I left the key in the ignition. Before this, the car was working fine. I'm not sure if this is because I'm using a small Corolla to jump the MDX.

I think your right, the battery you're using to jump the MDX isn't powerful enough. Try starting the Corolla and revving the engine to 2000 RPM for a few minutes, let the MDX battery charge a little bit, then try jumping the battery (while still revving the Corolla engine)
