How to Jump Start Another Car

If you have ever been stuck on the road with a dead battery, you know how frustrating it can be to wait for someone to help or get expensive roadside assistance to get you back on the road. If you have a set of jumper cables, you may be able to get back on the road quickly instead. Jumper cables are necessary to jump-start a dead battery, so if they didn’t come with your car, you should purchase a set for just this reason.

Jumper cables come with two sets of clips. These are red and black clips that attach to the battery terminals. Red clips correspond to positive terminals, and the black clips attach to the negative terminals. Before beginning a jump-start, make sure that both cars are in park and turned off. Next, you’ll attach the red clips to the positive terminals, followed by attaching the black clips. You can then turn on the working car battery, and it will immediately charge your dead battery.
