How to Jump Start Your Car

Written by adminadmin September 18, 2017
Having a car battery failing or completely dead is a situation that has probably happened to you before. You park your car for a while and when you get back, to turn the ignition nothing happens. Maybe you hear a few clicks but the car does not start. That means you have a flat/dead battery and the best way to get you back on the road as fast as possible is to get another car battery to jump start your car.

To jump-start a car safely you need to follow these basic steps.

  1. Ensure you have jumper cables that are safe for use.
  2.  Get a functioning car to help you with the jump start.
  3.  Park the functioning car so that the two vehicles are facing each other at a distance of 18 inches apart.
  4.  Ensure both vehicles are in park gear position with engines turned off and keys removed.
  5.  Attach the red clip which is the positive clip to the positive (+ve) end of your battery.
  6.  Also, attach the other end of the red clip to the positive (+ve) end of the functioning battery.
  7.  Now attach the black clip which is the negative clip to the negative (-ve) end of the functioning battery.
  8.  Take the other end of the black clip and clamp it on any unpainted part of your vehicle (preferably any bolt that is not painted).
  9.  Now start the functioning vehicle and let it run for a few minutes (5 minutes).
  10.  Then start your car, if it doesn’t start, wait a few more minutes and then try it again.
  11.  If the dead car is running, disconnect all the cables and let the car run for about 20 minutes.
  12.  You can now drive your car to your destination, but keep in mind that you need to visit an auto-shop to examine the performance of your car battery.
We hope the above steps have enlightened you on the process of jump starting a vehicle easily.
Drive safely and always take note of all signals displayed on your car dashboard to avoid car trouble or disappointments.
