The Correct Way to Jump-Starting Any Car

Getting in the car only to find that your battery is dead is a big inconvenience, but knowing how to correctly jump-start your batter can help. Here are some steps to help you correctly start your car battery.

  • In order to have your car jump-started, you will need to have a running car drive nose-to-nose to the car with the dead battery.
  • Turn the engine off, open the car hoods, and grab those jumper cables.
  • Pay close attention to the colors of the cables, there should be two red and two black clamps.
  • The one red goes on the positive terminal of the good battery first, then the other red cable to the positive on the dead battery.
  • Next, you'll place one of the black cables on negative of the good battery, then the last black clamp to bare metal on the car getting the jump to avoid sparks.
  • Crank over the engine, then just wait for the charge to transfer, now try to start your car.
