Jump-Starting Any Car with a Different Vehicle

Have you ever been stuck on the side of the road with a dead battery and not know how to jump start it? Well here are some tips.

  • In order to jump-start the battery in your vehicle, you'll need a car with a strong battery. Bring the car right to the nose of the car with the dead battery, then turn off the engine.
  • Open the hood, unravel the jumper cables.
  • The jumper cables will be color-coded, red for positive and black for negative. Locate the plus and minus signs on both batteries.
  • The red cable goes to plus on the good battery, then plus on the bad battery.
  • The black cable then goes to minus on good battery, bare metal on the car getting the jump.
  • Turn over the engine and wait a couple minutes. Try starting the other car, be patient because it could take several minutes depending on how dead the battery is.
  • Once the car starts, remove the jumper cables in the opposite order they were placed on your car.
