Ah. No wonder the jumper from the Big Orange Wire to the 12V didn't seem to help much. And smelled something awful, with a horrid cloud of little pluses and minuses wafting over the engine.
With the fairly-common 12V death issues, I wonder why they don't use some of the hybrid battery's juice to jump it when needed, though.
