Hey Donyia==You need to include what kind of car, what engine you have and more information on what happened. I am guessing that you left some light on possibly the glove box light. If the smoke is white you have coolant getting in the engine. If it is black it is running too rich. If it is blue, it is burning oil for some reason. GoodluckJoe

Why would you see smoke when you try to jump start a battery?

Once the smoke escapes you cannot put it back!

Also helps to increase the RPM of the donor car while cranking the other.

How do you get out of park when have a flat battery - automatic?

If your battery is dead then you are going nowhere therefore why would you need to take the car out of park? Get a jump start from another car with a good battery and then you can start your car and drive to the nearest battery dealer and buy a new battery if need be. Otherwise just put a battery charger on your battery and let it fully charge.
