The Correct Procedure to Jump Start Another Car


Before you work closely with the car battery, it is a good idea to be wearing your safety glasses and good quality work gloves.

Drive the running car as close to the disabled car as possible, the two batteries have to be close enough the jumper cables can reach.

Turn the car lights off, shut off the engine, then open the hoods of both vehicles.

Place of red clamp of the jumper cables on the positive terminal for the battery that is working. Place the other red cable to the positive terminal for the dead battery.

Place of black clamp of the jumper cables on the negative terminal for the battery that is working. Place the other black cable on a metal surface on the car getting a jump-start.

Start one car, then wait two minutes, start the other car.

If you still have battery issues, come to Ted's Auto Sales so we can give the charging system a thorough test.
