Tips for Jump Starting a Car

A dead battery isn't something that anyone wants to experience. However, if your battery is dead, you can jump start your car with another vehicle. In order for this to be a safe and effective process, you need to follow a few simple steps.

You will need a good set of jumper cables to begin with. Pull the car with a good battery near the car with a dead battery. Connect the red clamps on each end of the jumper cables to the positive poles on each battery. Connect the black clamp to the other pole on the good battery, and then place the other black clamp on a metal portion of the car with the bad battery.

Start the car with a good battery and let it run for a couple of minutes. At this point, try to start the car with a dead battery. It should turn over if the battery is not defective.
