How To Jump Start Car
From leaving your headlights on to having an old battery, most car owners will have a dead battery at some point. So, knowing how to jump start your car or truck is beneficial. Therefore if you ever find yourself with a dead battery, we’ve put together a how-to outline for you to jump start your car. As a disclaimer, we want to reinforce that these instructions are for conventional cars that have 12-volt batteries and combustion engines. If you’re experiencing difficulties with your electric vehicle we suggest that you take a look at our convenient mobile electric vehicle charging service page.
First: Open your car hood and the hood of the car you will be using to provide the power to jump start your car and locate the batteries.
Locate the positive post that will have a + sign and usually a red cable attached to it. Locate the negative post that will have a – sign and usually a black cable.
Park the vehicles as close to each other as you can. Close enough that the jumper cables will reach both batteries.
If the dead battery has a corrosive build-up, remove battery cables from the battery terminals, clean both cables and terminals with a stiff wire brush, and then reconnect.
Second: Pull out and unwind your battery cable. Like your battery terminals, the cables will have a positive side marked with a plus and a red cable, and the negative side will be marked with – and have a black cable. Keep the jumper cables from touching each other once you have connected them to the battery. If they touch, it could cause serious damage to both vehicles.
Third: Connect the jumper cables to the jumping vehicle by placing the positive end of the cable to the positive battery post. Then place the negative cable to the negative post. Then do the same to the car with the dead battery.
Fourth: Start the working car and let it idle for a few minutes. Slightly rev the engine just above idle for about a minute. A good clean connection between the cable and terminals is a must.
Fourth: Try to start the disabled car. If it doesn’t start, turn the car off, then check the connection of the four terminals. Then try to start the car again. If it doesn’t start, you may need to have your vehicle towed.
Not everyone has jumper cables on hand or a friend that can race right over to help them with a jump start. And if your vehicle is in the garage, there’s a chance getting another vehicle next to it to start it may be impossible. But the great news is Clean Earth Recovery will quickly jump start your vehicle at an affordable rate no matter where’s it’s parked.
