How to Jump Start Another Car

Your car battery isn’t working anymore, and you can’t even get to the auto parts store to replace it. Is there any way to fix it? Yes! You can use jumper cables to jump-start your vehicle and get back on the road, even if it’s just for a short trip. The key to jump-starting a car is having another car with a working battery available. If you are stuck on the side of the road, you may need to flag down a good Samaritan to help you with this.

Jumper cables attach to the car battery terminals using the corresponding red and black clips. The red clips connect to the positive terminals on the battery. The black clips connect to the negative terminals. Before attaching the jumper cables, you should make sure that your cars are in the parked position and turned off with keys removed from the ignition. Once properly attached, you can start the working car with the good battery to charge up your dead battery. It should only take about 10 to 15 minutes to get a decent charge.

What’s next? You’ll need to replace the dead battery as soon as possible. You can head to Precision Acura Of Princeton to get amazing prices on replacement parts and batteries. We offer some of the best specials in Lawrenceville on maintenance and repairs.
