Best to not use a car battery or a car which is running to jump start it. Good chance of damaging the stator and rectifier not to mention frying some of the wiring. Too much current available.

I wouldn't have much hope in charging a 12yr. old or older battery either.

After 12 years the battery will be dead.

Jump starting with a car battery may not be a good idea

Fit a new one.

Some one will chime in with some solid advice on the jump start.

Thanx Dave.
