How to Properly Jump-Start a Car

While you need to know how to jump a car in general, it’s more important to know how to properly jump-start a car. All Seward drivers should have a set of jumper cables always in their trunk. Here’s how to jump-start a car:

  1. You’ll need your vehicle and one more. Have both vehicles facing each other, then make sure they’re both turned off. Double-check the parking brakes are engaged.
  2. Prop both hoods open and find the batteries. Remove the plastic hood to expose the battery terminals if needed.
  3. Find the positive and negative terminals. Check that they’re all corrosion free.
  4. Grab the red clamp and connect it to the positive post on your dead battery.
  5. Uncoil the battery cable, then hook the other red clamp to the positive terminal on the good battery.
  6. Clip the black clamp to the negative post on the good battery.
  7. For the last clamp, connect to the unpainted metal surface on your car’s frame.
  8. Once all clamps are hooked securely, start the engine with the good battery first. Then start your vehicle with the dead battery.
  9. Once the dead vehicle has started, carefully remove the jumper cables in reverse order. Then shut off the car, that helped to jump-start the dead battery.
  10. Keep your engine running for at least 10 minutes to make sure it does not die again.
