Easy Steps How to Jump Start Another Car

These are the steps to get a car jumped from another. Park the two cars so the noses touch. Open the hoods, put on work gloves, then make sure you are wearing safety glasses too. Unravel the jumper cables; the two red cables will go to the positive sides of the batteries, good battery first, then the bad battery.

The one black cable will go to the negative sides of the good battery, then the other to any metal contact on the car being jumped to avoid sparks. Now you can start the one car. Leave it running a few minutes; you can rev the engine to get more charge going. Now try to start the car with the bad battery. It might take two or more tries, be patient.

If you can safely get the vehicle to Vanderhyde Brothers Ford Inc, our crew can test and replace your car battery if needed!
